Thank You — and Happy Thanksgiving 2022 to You

Time to gobble the gobbler — and be thankful.

Please allow me to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday today, Thursday, November 24, 2022 — unless you happen to be Canadian, in which case you already celebrated Thanksgiving on Monday, October 10, 2022.

Thank You — and Happy Thanksgiving 2022 to You

For this year, I decided for this article to be shorter and sweeter, as even though I have faced adversity this year, I am thankful for:

  • Family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and loved ones who have been and are a part of my life — especially whenever I have needed their support — who care about me and want to see me happy
  • Travel slowly returning to some semblance of normalcy
  • Having had the opportunity to travel around the world
  • Having managed to not yet skip a year without flying as a passenger aboard an airplane
  • The current 2019 Novel Coronavirus gradually waning from its peak
  • Being in good health and not knowingly contracting any variation of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, as I suffer from no allergies and still to this day do not take any medication; and I realize how rare is that gift — and I wish I can bestow that gift upon everyone and eradicate disease, illness and suffering
  • The opportunity to help other people in many ways — and to give back to the community
  • Every time you patronize the companies which advertise at The Gate — as well as the affiliate links which I include in some of the articles that I write — and I may not always write glowing reports about them; but at least you can be assured that I remain honest about what I write

Speaking for myself, there are a number of things in life for which I am thankful — but there are times where I feel that I do not express my thankfulness enough. My hope and wish once again for this Thanksgiving is that the list of things for which I am thankful will cause you to pause for a moment and reflect on the people and things in your life for which you are thankful — and please feel free to share them in the Comments section below if you feel compelled to do so.

Last — but certainly not least; and I cannot reiterate this enough — I am thankful for you. You are the reason why The Gate exists and why it keeps evolving after greater than 16 years. I learn from you whenever you take the time to comment — especially when you do not agree with what I write or when you correct me on information which I mistakenly posted — and I read every single comment posted by you. I learn from your advice and experiences…

…and there are few things which are more gratifying to me than reading how I have been able to help you either plan a trip or save money or avoid a negative experience — or even simply entertain you.

I may not say it often enough; but I am thankful for you all year long — and I am honored to have the opportunity to be a small part of your life whenever you choose to read The Gate.

Final Boarding Call

May you and yours have the best Thanksgiving holiday yet this year — replete with plenty of joy, happiness, success, loved ones and delicious food — and may you be truly thankful for all that you have and experienced.

Thank you — again and again and again — from the bottom of my heart.
