Like most of my friends I’m ready for this year to be over. But it’s probably good to take a minute and remind myself that there are still things for which I am truly thankful.

I am thankful for my wife, Mandy.

I am thankful for parents and siblings.

I am thankful for my artistic families at Lifeline Theatre and WildClaw Theatre.

I am thankful for my friends.

I am thankful for the people who attend theatre.

I am thankful for my cats: Smogs, Aggiebear, and Reggieface.

I am thankful that I still have a lot to look forward to.

Thanks, everybody.¬†Mandy and I are a little under the weather, so we’re probably gonna order a pizza and spend the day under a pile of blankets on the couch. There are worse ways to spend the day.
