Thanks, Again . . .

By Art van Bodegraven | 11/25/2015 | 8:13 AM

So much to be thankful for, with, and about . . .

Mijn vrouw, gorgeous, funny, smart, a force of nature, a gifted health care professional, super-Mom, wise, uber-cook, the brains of the outfit, and my constant inspiration.

Our children, no longer kids, of course. Extra-bright, ambitious, talented, resilient, accomplished, motivated - and also funny as all get out. Their Mom's genes clearly dominate. Each is a winner in his or her own way, and in their own circumstances.

Grandchildren who mirror and model the best of our several parts; light up the room bright, funnier than any of us, talented beyond reason (more genes from other sources), caring, and insightful.

A magnificent profession to be a small part of, a collection of great minds making a difference every day - and sharing knowledge and experience gained the hard way with anyone who is looking for help.

A network of friends and friendly acquaintances who enrich the minutia of daily life.

A desperate publisher who tolerates rants, raves, bipolar swings, and intemperate opinions with grace and style - what a privilege to have a venue for free and random expression!

My health care team, world class, as well as tolerant of eccentricities.

No, it doesn't get any better than this, and I want it to never end.
