In keeping with the holiday and the fact that it’s Thursday, here are three things I’m grateful for on this day.
- Family. Dale is my husband and partner in everything I do and I’m so grateful to have him by my side. Our kids are the light of my life, they bring me joy and I love spending time with them. And then we have those grandkids, Jackie has connected us as a family in a truly special way. This year I’m especially grateful for my amazing father-in-law, Jack. We came so close to losing him this summer that I’m extra appreciative of the wisdom and guidance he always provides.
- Friends. I’ve got the best friends ever. Seriously, girlfriends for life, like Doreen, and girlfriends that came along later, like Jo-Ann. Plus my knitting friends and work friends and Kiwanis friends and friends in our community. It’s a big circle and I’m so glad to be part of it.
- All the rest: my home and my health, meaningful work, pets and gardens and bloggers, a comfortable bed to climb into every night, books to read, yarn for knitting, and the fact that I’m living a life that feels incredibly blessed and authentic.
I hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful and delicious Thanksgiving!
