Gratitude, Again

Dean Barnett at Soxblog posts a moving and thoughtul essay. Key sentence:

Happily married, my days filled up with things I enjoy, I'm a pretty lucky guy and my wife and I are a very happy couple.

Given what comes before and after this, it's a remarkable thing to say. If I ever start whining about my life, I suggest that someone (a) kick me, hard, and (b) remind me about Dean. Best wishes to him.
