This Thanksgiving will be a small gathering around our table. Small, but deeply loved, appreciated, and treasured. And profound gratitude will be present.
Gratitude for the people we love and who reciprocate our love. Gratitude for kindness, support, understanding, and friendship. Gratitude for wisdom acquired and hard lessons learned with grace and acceptance. Gratitude for the bottomless comfort of trusting those who sit with us. Gratitude for the realization that no matter how enormous the loss, how vast the betrayal, and how intense the pain, each moment becomes a bit brighter. Gratitude for the knowledge that each minute is new and every hour offers peace to all who welcome it.
I wish you a joyful Thanksgiving filled with love, hope, and friendship. And great food!
