This Thanksgiving, my family is back in my hometown of El Dorado Arkansas visiting my parents and our cousins. Thanksgiving at the family homestead in Arkansas is the perfect place to be this time of year.
My family has a lot to be thankful for this year. My Dad, age 81, made it to another Thanksgiving despite a series of heart attacks dating back to 1981 when I was in law school. My Dad is a tough nut with a heart of gold which unfortunately is failing him. I am thankful that my family can spend time with Dad and Mom, soulmates for the past 56 years.
I am thankful for my beautiful wife and healthy kids, my younger brother and his family who traveled from Texas and my older sister and her family who made the journey from Utah and California. I am thankful for my cousins here in Arkansas and my family’s friends and church members who have supported my parents during this year.
I am thankful for my clients, passengers and crew members alike, who have entrusted us with their cases and causes.
I am thankful for my friend Jonathan Aronson and his wife Ilene who have helped us defeat the cruise line felons and are helping our law firm grow and prosper this year.
I am thankful for the people who are readers of Cruise Law News and who have supported me. Thanks a million for your positive (and negative) comments on this blog, on Twitter and Facebook. I appreciate your encouragement.
Take a moment on this day of Thanksgiving and be thankful for your family and friends. Count your blessings as you sit around the table eating turkey and watching the ball games this afternoon.
Happy Thanksgiving my friends.
