Believe it or not, the concept of appreciation is the root of all happiness and the basic foundation of every religion. It's easy to get caught up in petty problems and forget the things that really matter in our life. I for one, am thankful that an old friend is finally giving up a bad drug habit after 2 disastrous years. I am also thankful that my blood tests for liver damage came back negative last week, and I am thankful for my new job. So in the spirit of the season, take a moment to consider what you have that makes you happy, or what you have that others don't have. Happy Thanksgiving!
