Today I am Thankful For

Today I am thankful for...

Drum roll please...

Being Still!

I don't do it enough (or not do it as the case may be). Being silent, still, and doing nothing. That's what I am thankful for, being able to sit and relax in peace and quiet. Albeit, this doesn't happen a lot anymore at my house, but it is still something I am very, very thankful for.

Thankful for Babies

Babies are so interesting to watch grow up into toddlers. Our baby John Victor has always been very happy and even though he recently cut two teeth and is still teething, he has such a happy demeanor. It is fun to watch him learn to interact with his broters and sister. It is fun to watch him learn to grab things and make cute noises. In no time he will be eating solid food, crawling, walking, running, etc. It is so nice to watch them grow up. I am very thankful for babies (especially mine).

Thankful for Basketball

I used to play basketball all the time as a kid. And it kept me in good shape. I am very thankful for basketball and the things I learned from playing it. I am also thankful for the good physical shape it kept me in.

Thankful for email

My wife just emailed to tell me I should be thankful for email, because I just emailed her from ten feet away. She's right! I am very thankful for email. It's one of the ways I have been able to keep in touch with old friends. I barely ever call people anymore, email is one of my prime modes of communication. I am very, very thankful for email.

Thankful for My Dad

It's my Dad's birthday and although I have already mentioned it, I am very thankful for my Dad (aka. Brian Alan Manty). He has certainly been an inspiration for me in business and was a great provider for our family. I am very thankful for my Dad and wish him a Happy Birthday.

Thankful for peanuts

I really like peanuts. I really, really like peanut butter, which is made from peanuts. I am very thankful for peanuts. Without them it would be much more difficult to be a vegetarian.
