I have quite a bit to be thankful for today. My family, first of all. My little brother, Dan, and his girlfriend are in town. It's been many moons since I've seen my bro'.
I'm mostly thankful that there's a place to buy my Festivus Pole this year. You know Festivus - the holiday for the rest of us invented by Frank Costanza of the Seinfeld Show.
The Mondok family has a tremendous amount to celebrate. I have great kids and an amazing wife. I never would have thought that my life could be this good. The greatest investment I've ever made was in my relationship with the beautiful and charming Susan and my two kids. With Christ at the center of all we do, it's been an investment that has only begun to pay dividends.
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
