So Much To Be Thankful For

November 24, 2011 Featured, Steve Patterson No Comments

Today I will be with friends I spend every thanksgiving with, enjoying homemade food and cosmopolitans (it’s our traditional drink as we cook).

I have much to be thankful for this year:

  • The increasing number of urbanists fighting to keep others (Biondi, etc) from further destroying the city, giving me hope for the future.
  • Starting my 8th year blogging. My longest time at jobs has been about five years (about two longer than I should have stayed), so to still love what I’m doing after 7 years is thrilling & rewarding.
  • Very thankful for my family of friends in St. Louis.
  • And finally, I’m still alive! It’s been nearly four years since I had my stroke. I couldn’t get to my phone to call 911 and I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to survive. Going through that thought in your mind is life changing. The memory of that time and therapy will stay with me until the day I actually die. In the meantime, I’m going to do my best to encourage positive change in St. Louis.
Happy Thanksgiving!
