I’ll make this brief, because I know you all want to enjoy your Thanksgiving … but this is what I’m thankful for:
1. My husband and my family. The most loving, supportive people I know – and, yes, I am biased!
2. My health.
3. My friends. In a crisis, you truly find out who is in your corner. Again, I’m surprised and overwhelmed by the people who help and support me. Likewise, I hope I can do the same for them.
3. Some unexpected time off. It sounds strange to say it after receiving my walking papers and being told I can’t do something I love, but more and more I’m starting to realize that I have an opportunity to take some time off and figure out what I want to do next with my life. That’s not to say I don’t want to get back in the workforce – I get to see what other opportunities are out there.
Seriously, I hope everyone reading gets the chance to spend the holiday with the people they love and care about, and find a way to give thanks every day, even when it seems like we, as individuals and as a society, are in some really tough times.
Now go enjoy all that turkey and football tomorrow!
