Thanksgiving

This thanksgiving is different from previous holidays.  After going through a few life changing events and getting necessary “wake up” calls; I have immense gratitude for life.   This day I am reflecting on how thankful I am for your support and for knowing you.  You know who you are.  It is the family member who says hello and checks in just because.  It is the friend who listens without judgement.  It is the co-worker who brightly smiles and waves hello.  It is the receptionist who takes the time to ask how I am feeling.   And I cannot forget how thankful I am for our baby girl Olivia Daisy.  It is her unconditional positive regard for life that amazes me.  Olivia’s innocence and enthusiasm are contagious.  She is our “guppy”, a nickname we gave her after the first ultrasound.  She appeared like a guppy with no formed legs or arms on the ultrasound.  Now we call her “cupcake” and “stinky”.  Oh how things change!  I am truly thankful for the ups and downs that life has brought.  Like an ocean wave, my confidence has ebbed and flowed.  However, this Thanksgiving I am more alive, more aware than ever before.  I am truly thankful for a fresh start, a new beginning, an awakening.

Many thanks to YOU.  Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
