Give thanks for electronics and your digital blessings

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all that you are thankful for, this Thanksgiving take a look around and notice all of the technology items that make your life better. I am sure on Thanksgiving Day alone you will see dozens of examples.

I am thankful for the electric knife that helps us carve the Turkey safely.

I am thankful for the TV that lets us watch football games in HD.

I am thankful for the KitchenAid mixer that helps us quickly blend, mix and kneed.

I am thankful for the cell phone that lets us call relatives and see why they are running late.

I am thankful for iPods that keep the teens busy so they don’t bother us in the kitchen while dinner is getting ready.

I am thankful for XBox, PS3, and Gameboy that entertain the younger kids.

I am thankful for digital cameras and camcorders that allows us to capture the special day in pictures.

I am thankful for DVDs that allow the entire family to watch a movie late in the afternoon as we all digest.

I am thankful for Google Maps that help us plan out our Black Friday shopping trip.

I am thankful for Pricegrabber and Shopzilla that allow us to check and see if the Black Friday specials are really a good buy.

I  am thankful for GPS that helps us navigate strange neighborhoods while visiting relatives.

I am thankful for PVR technology that allows us to rewind and pause live TV so a moment of the game isn’t missed.

Most of all I am thankful to live in a country where we must strain to imagine a day without such luxuries.
