I’m grateful for the love and support of my family over the years and for the chance to gather together on Thanksgiving in gratitude for our good fortune. Sadly, only my dear Aunt Phoebe Ellsworth, my Mom’s sister and my beloved “fairy” Godmother, is the last surviving member of her generation, so I’d like to recognize her for all she’s done for our family and the community. A talented artist, fantastic cook, great storyteller, and a wonderful role model, she was once honored for her community service as “Citizen of the Year” in St. Helena, CA.

I am grateful for being honored with holding my best friend’s hand as she passed peacefully from this world. And I’m grateful for all the memories we were able to create while we waited for that moment to arrive. And I’m grateful for having met such a stunning, gorgeous, girly spirit of a friend so long ago.

I am grateful for all the people who have supported my husband and I through his Parkinson’s journey. He was diagnosed in 2008 and our kids, family, friends — and the organizations PAN, Parkinson’s Foundation, Michael J Fox Foundation — have all held us up when times got rough. I am eternally grateful for Dr. Philip Star who performed brain surgery successfully on John and nurse Monica who maintains his stimulator. We’re surrounded by love and you can’t get better than that!

I am grateful for the business opportunities that have come my way – even at age 73! This allow me to still have a meaningful sense of professional identity, which in turn sustains my interest in continuing to “give back” where, how, and when I can.Philantropy
Day 6 – 13 (Nov 14-21) I am grateful that the Opisoftcare deal and related job opportunity for me is still a candidate for funding by two investor groups. Negotiations have been going on for this since May; it’s a Cliffanger, with serious valuation issues and structuring complications. It also appears to be a deal the investors want to do and continue to work at, so I am grateful for their efforts and for the loyalty and transparency the Opisoftcare team has shown to me over this months.

I’m thankful for the faith I learned and the Biblical world view I received from my family and church… So glad I grew up in a country that has freedom of religion!

My friends have saved me so many times in so many ways, and enriched my life. They have stayed true over the years. They understand when I don’t have to explain. They give me tough love…sometimes much needed.

I am grateful for the family Heritage started by my grandfather, Henry J. Kaiser, whose accomplishments benefit me, and the world, today. Over the next 14 days I will reflect on this heritage in ways that are relevant for the theme of the day. I am also grateful for my 43 year marriage to Peggy, now deceased, and our two great daughters, and the family Peggy and I built together. Henry M. Kaiser, MBA PsyD.Family
