As Santa is over Europe I’d just like to say “I’m thankful”.
I’m thankful that I’m happy and content.
I’m thankful that my relatives many years ago moved from Virginia, Arkansas and Missouri to rainy Fresno, California (Yea! Go Rain! You can keep your snow thanks!)
I’m thankful that I have a comfortable house, a cute car (come on, you gotta admit it’s cute… even without the reindeer costume).
I’m thankful for my family.
I’m thankful for my dog (even when he licks my ears… he has an ear fettish or something, I tell ya).
I’m thankful I have friends around the world.
I’m thankful for all the crazy folks who read this blog, send emails that give me ideas for things to write about (I still owe about a dozen posts to folks about HyperV best practices, Patching whether it’s good for us or not and a bunch of other stuff).
I’m thankful you tolerate my crazy MINI Cooper blog posts. (Say … I don’t have a category for that do I?)
I’m thankful that there are folks around the world that we can lean upon if we need to.
I’m thankful “Mom of the Partner Newsgroups” is always there to keep an eye on us. Marie, you are the best.
I’m thankful for the folks in Redmond (how’s that Snow going?), for the folks in Texas, for the folks in China, for the folks in India, for the folks in Charlotte and all the Mothership folks that care for and have passion for the SMB community.
I’m thankful for all of the people I’ve met along the way who have impacted or touched me.
I’m thankful for all of the people I’ve met along the way that have impacted or touched the SMB world.
I’m thankful for all of the people on my IM list (you know who you are) who I consider friends.
I’m thankful for the Internet that makes this a small world every day. And over and over again proves that it is.
I’m thankful for having passion about life.
I’m thankful that I can argue with Vlad and Dana.
But all in all.. I’m very thankful. But most of all I’m thankful for all of you.
To all of you, and for all that you do, thank you!
