I am not unaware of how lucky I am. I know there are others who have far less in every area of their life. And on this day, in this moment, I am thankful for many, many things.
For those that love me. In silence and in words.
And those that love me in mine.
For those that fight for me and with me.
For healthy children who make me laugh every day and let me peek into their hearts regularly.
For a job that gives me the freedom to be a part of those little lives every day.
For a home bigger than I need but able to welcome friends and family warmly and easily.
For the strength to make hard decisions.
For the wisdom to know what those are.
For friends who hold me up – and often hold a mirror up.
For all the memories and me, too’s and simple moments that are often overlooked.
For all of this and more I am thankful – then, now & always.
Wishing all of you the happiest of Thanksgivings — and all that you are thankful for —
