    My lovely wife kept asking me what I wanted for Christmas, I always reply, nothing, I have everything I need!
    Well she pulled off the perfect gift!
    Years ago I went through a divorce and my 2 kids kind of stayed away from me and my new wife.. She has worked for years to bring us back together and life has been great recently, they visit us often.
    Last Friday night I found out she had sent my granddaughter and grandson new clothes and had my son and daughter all meet us at JC Pennys for pictures lol

    She had them take a picture of my old self and my son, his son, my daughter and her daughter as a gift for me.

    The Perfect gift!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

    Thank you for this post. Some days are really tough to get through but this reminds me that everything will be okay. Family and friends can pull you out of the ditch every time. I hope all you fellas have a warm place to gather. Peace.

    You know Duke all that matters in the end is family. Everything else is just "stuff", material inanimate objects that can be replaced. The only exception being is our pets.

    Your son may not know it now but he will remember and likely cherish this photo at some point in the future!

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving, to one and all!

    It is hard to believe 7 years ago I was that fat guy eating alone at the all you can eat buffet, I had lost my family and most of my friends. I was alone, I hit rock bottom and just about gave up. I wish I could go back in time and tell myself everything would work out!

    Duke, you have a very beautiful family!! Don’t ever dwell on your past. Take the lessons learned and apply them to your future. Those grandchildren will be looking to you for your wisdom now, and your kids will be needing your knowledge. Those are your purposes now.

    A very Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends here! May the blessings of the season be yours.
