Thanksgiving traditions -- a lot of families have them.

For some, it's a certain dish served each Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe playing games, watching football. Or, if you're like my family, each person goes around the table and says what they are thankful for each year.

We all have crazy busy lives which don't always allow us time to thank those who deserve it, so I'd like to start with what I'm thankful for a little early.

I'm thankful for my loving family, who put up with my silly sense of humor. My husband, who goes above and beyond to show me how much I'm loved. My friends, who keep me sane. My morning show partner, Rik, who may drive me crazy at times, but who always has my back. My amazing job, which allows me to experience things that most only dream about.

And lastly ... you. My listener ... my friend. Thank you for sharing your mornings with me each and every day.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
