As I fly back after a long Thanksgiving weekend, I feel inspired to post not about the food (though there was plenty!) but about what I’m thankful for.
I spent four wonderful days with my future in-laws, meeting dozens of new faces and old. The entire time, I was embraced and surrounded by love.
With each new family member I meet, from all sides and branches, I’ve felt comfortable immediately. And I recognize that I have something special in our connection, something not to be taken for granted.
I’ve experienced my share of bad people – people that hold selfish motives or just can’t share in mutual joy.
And I’ve come far enough to know that life is too short to have negative people in your life.
With that said, here’s what I’m thankful for this year:
1. My health. I’ve experienced minor ruts before. It just makes me that much more appreciative of being healthy. I’m learning to take care of myself – my oxygen mask first.
