It is that time of year that everyone takes for granted – after all it is Thanksgiving. While some are forced to spend time with family or fake the smile – I, on the other hand, am truly have a lot to be thankful for.

I am thankful for family, both near and far, for keeping in touch and sharing the joys and triumphs of  life.

I am thankful for friends – old ones and new, those who look out for me and tell me like it is and who accept me for who I am.

I am thankful for good health – strong knees and ankles so I can dance, mental strength so that I can prepare for the marathon, and a good memory – so I can remember everyone else’s schedules to keep them on track.

I am thankful to technology – it opens up a whole new world, so much can be accomplished in so little time, and what is thousands of miles away is now a few minutes away.

I am thankful for being surrounded by love and positivity and hope for when times are bad – that is what sustains you.

I am thankful for the abundance the universe has to offer.

I am thankful for being here now!

Happy Thanksgiving!
