I have so very much to be thankful for right now. Oh my goodness – it’s ridiculous! This week’s holiday really helped me to put it all in perspective. First of all – I have some wonderful, beautiful, amazing friends. I had the honor of seeing some of them on my holiday journey this week and it was such a fun reminder of why they’re my friends in the first place. I’m so grateful to an often benevolent universe for these special gifts! Second of all – I’m grateful for the opportunity to actually connect with my father. I don’t do it very often, but have made the Thanksgiving journey so many times now it’s a real tradition. It was just my daughter and me this year – no brother, son or boyfriend. But – that’s okay. If we felt a little lonely, so be it – we also felt connected to the past and were present for this year’s small celebration. And thirdly – I am so very, very grateful for my coastal home and the people who fill it. I love all of you!
Tonight is our Living Light holiday party. This is always a good time. It’s a chance to get dressed up and hang out with work friends. I’m looking forward to it. We always play games and have a white elephant exchange and yummy food. It’s another connection for which I’m grateful today – a chance to connect in such a festive way with the people I see almost every day. And it’s another chance to be present for my life today and be honored by the opportunity to work for and with such wonderful people. The holidays have begun in earnest and I’m happy to say I’m right there with them!
