    Happy home life. Warm and loving friends. Good health. Lovely home. Satsifying work that benefits myself and others. War in Iraq winding down. Presidential election in 2012.
    Living in the USA with all the benefits and freedoms therein.

    Feel free to add your own and I will add more as I think of them.

    Grateful for the fact that I woke up on top of the grass, rather than under it.

    Am also grateful that even though I'm 47 1/2, I can still ride a bicycle as many miles as I want or need to, that it's still in great shape, even though I've had it since '97.

    But the thing I'm grateful for the most? A woman that I call Auntie Bull, who is my roommate and who is also the brightest blessing in my life that I've ever had. She teaches me things I don't know, is a great white board for ideas, and has a really dark sense of humor at times.

    I'm also grateful for the fact that I am a son of HaShem, and what's even better, is I know and understand that.

    I'm grateful to be prosperous enough to support a family of six Tibetans in India.

    I'm grateful for a warm fire on a cold November day, a glass of merlot, and a quiet house, with the company of my wife, four cats and a dog.

    I am grateful to still be alive. One doctor told my children I would not be by this time.

    Life sucks. Always has always will. But I am still managing to stay around to support my family.

    Grateful that liberalism is dying off one disillusioned uninformed hippie at a time.
