As we count our blessings today, I can't help but think about you.

It's finally here, people! Today is the big day. It's Thanksgiving. As we gather around various tables expressing gratitude for the people sitting around it, I'd like to take a moment to thank you.

Thank you for being a major part of my life.

I know it sounds cheesy, but I mean it. I really love my job, but I don't get to do it unless people are listening. Being able to spend every single day hanging out with you is a honor and a privilege. Without you, I don't get to sit in this seat and I will never forget that nor take it for granted. I get asked a lot why I chose to do this job and honestly, it's because of the people.

Each day I want to keep things positive, light and hopefully put a smile on your face. I mean, isn't that why you tune in? To hear a familiar voice and maybe just for a few minutes you don't have the weight of the world on your shoulders? That's exactly how I felt growing up listening to AJ's Playhouse on Channel 933 in San Diego. Those people felt like my friends and they made me feel like no matter what came my way that day, everything was going to be OK. I loved that feeling and I strive to create that for you too.

So on this day of thanks, I want you to know that you are valued, you are appreciated, and you are an incredible gift!

Thank you.
