I have the week off with my lovely wife and the best inlaws anyone could ask for.
I have the best job in the world, albeit at the bottom of the aviation food chain, self-employed, and with a passel of good pilots to teach, from student to budding CFI.
I enjoy excellent health, the vital signs of a twenty year old, and take no medication (save a daily baby aspirin).
While none of these things can be purchased at a shopping mall or online on Black Friday or any other day, they nevertheless embody true happiness. To all my readers, newfound or longtime: This Thanksgiving I wish you a wonderful day filled not with ephemeral thrills offered by material goods and gains, but with the true contentment of open-hearted friendship and above all, love.
