I’ll be heading to a Thanksgiving “apero” on Friday (hey, it’s a cultural melange!), but in the meantime, here is an abbreviated gratitude list. I’ve been incorporating this practice of recognizing life’s bounty into my regular routine anyway; the holiday is just a more formalized chance to say thanks!
I’m thankful that my close friend came through his heart procedure successfully today. I’m thankful for my own open heart.
“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do,” artist Georgia O’Keeffe once said.
I’m thankful for inspiring quotes. Inspring stories. Inspiring people and lives.
I’m thankful for the proverbs on each sachet of Yogi tea.
I’m thankful for silly status updates from friends far and wide – though I really shouldn’t spend quite so much time online.
