Happy Thanksgiving

Considering everyone else in my house has an American passport, we haven't really done anything for Thanksgiving. But I would still like to take the opportunity to state what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for life, the universe and everything.

This was the answer that I gave many years ago when I attended a Thanksgiving dinner as a student. And it is still true today, though I think it deserves a longer explanation.

Life

I am thankful for all the people in my life. My friends, my family and my colleagues. Everyone has helped me get to where I am now.

The universe

I am thankful for the physical world in which I live. Sure we can enjoy grumbling about the weather, but the truth is that we live in an awesome world that provides so much for us.

Everything

This covers everything else. There are so many things that could have been different, and there are so many ways things could have been worse.

The truth is that I am very thankful the life I get to live.
