As we embark on another long distance drive to celebrate Thanksgiving by over-eating I tend to try and meditate about what I’m thankful for.

First and foremost, my wife and kids – no surprise here. My siblings and my Mom, who am I looking forward to being reunited with since we’ve become far-flung, are naturally “up there”.

Secondly, I’m very grateful to my employers at Slingo, Inc. Sal Falciglia is a class act who was the creator of the wildly successful game that has enabled me to be one of those rare individuals who enjoy what they do; furthermore the firm’s GM Eric Lamendola has shown a compassion and empathy for the artists and taken care of us in stand-up ways. Two class acts and I’m fortunate to be associated with both.

I can’t wait to get to work, and when the day is done, I can’t wait to get home to my family.

Finally, I must acknowledge my sister-in-law and her husband Wasfi. Despite the challenges they both face, I never need to worry about the care of my children. I am eternally grateful. Help yourself to anything in the fridge!

So, what are you thankful for?

Have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.
