One Hundred Things I am Thankful for on Thanksgiving Day 2010

My son asked me what I was thankful for and I responded that he was on the top of my list.  He then asked if I was thankful for 50things.  I told him I was thankful for twice as much.  And so the dare was made.  Here are 100 things I am thankful for.
