November 8 – A family member. What is something that person does that makes your life better or easier?

Since today is Larry's birthday, it is only appropriate that I choose him.

I am thankful for his wisdom - you need advice?  He has it.  He will analyze the situation and tell you the truth, even if it isn't what you want to hear. 

I am thankful for his generosity - you need help?  He has it.  No matter how big or small, he is generous to a fault. 

I am thankful for his immaturity - you want to laugh at inappropriate times and feel like you're back in junior high?  Sit by him.  He is a prime example that growing old doesn't mean you have to grow up.  He reminds me to quit taking things so seriously and have a little fun.

I am thankful for his perseverance - you want to be encouraged to stay the course and not give up?  He will live by example and remind us that no matter where you come from, no matter what you've faced, you can get through it.

Happy birthday to the Magical White Guy who makes my life better every day!

He is a wonderful man and we're blessed to know him. MWG has been at the birth of our children, counseled us on what gun to buy, talked me through plunging a toilet, got Joseph a house in CHICAGO, and the list goes on and on. He's a great big brother. :)

Yes, yes, yes, and yes. Good one, Bee. Larry is definitely someone to be thankful for! I'll never forget the many things he has done for Dale and I and my family.

Good stuff, the MWG.

Yup, Larry is the go to guy. Don't think I've ever seen him really angry or even upset. He's solid, and hilarious at times. So glad he's part of our family!
