We’re t-minus 90 minutes from driving to my grandmother-in-law’s house on the other side of Birmingham for our first Thanksgiving celebration of the day. For what are you thankful? Here are two things on my “Thankful” list:

1. Hot Showers. I marvel at how the opportunities for basic hygiene we take for granted were out of reach of virtually everyone not that long ago.

2. The opportunity to take a job at Samford and move to Birmingham last year. Having our kids in the same town as their grandparents has been absolutely amazing.
