I'm thankful to have learned this year that my small family is more resilient in the face of adversity than I'd imagined.
I'm grateful to have discovered how much our community and friends in Philadelphia have come to mean to me.
I'm thankful for a wife who wouldn't let me give up when I wanted to stick my tail between my legs. I'm thankful for a son who regularly gives me kisses on my forehead.
I'm thankful that even in a rough professional year, I've had the pleasure to continue doing the thing I want to do: journalism.
I'm thankful, frankly, for the wisdom and forgiveness of people who have no good reason to offer either to me.
This has been a humbling year, in all senses of the word. But there's more good than bad in it. And I thank all of you, readers and friends. Thank you.
