Thankful, Day 2:  Rick.  A.k.a. Slow, Rickshaw, Rickles. 

Rick, I am thankful for your persistent Monday night calls three years ago trying to convince me to eat one of your spaghetti dinners.  I enjoyed your signature moves on stage at the Upfront Theater while the performances lasted. 

For some reason, my angst with life was displaced, and I was unreasonably angry with you at the beginning of the year.   I see clearly now, that you have a good heart.  I know you can come over and enjoy a good bottle of Chianti, and I can spill my secrets to you.   You are like a brother to me – when I miss my three brothers back home so much.  I have a hard time opening up to anyone, and it took me a while to appreciate who you are and where you came from.  But, Rick, you are one of the things that makes Bellingham GOOD.   I never have to put on a facade or pretend to be anything other than what I am. 

Rick, you are one in a million.  Thank you for being exactly, precisely 100% who you are at all times.

    I LOVE that picture! Everyone looks so happy, in fact, you actually all look like you could be siblings or cousins. I don’t think there is ANYTHING we could be more thankful for than other people. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what’s up next on your gratitude journey.

    1. That was a very happy moment. I agree – there really isn’t anything we can be more thankful for than other people. I’ve been very blessed. 🙂
