I am Grateful/Thankful For 2015….

  1. I am thankful for Family- it’s an obvious place to start for most of us in any “I’m thankful for”exercise. Whether they’re coming to us or we’re going to them, family. Their support and legacy of love, Good or bad, your family life helped inform what you value most in relationships and for being your closest kin in the world. The new and the old. The ones that have been around for ages in the family too the ones that are becoming family by marriage.
  2. I am thankful for astronomy- Moon and Stars for brightening up our night sky. The Sun bringing in light and beauty to this world. The earth for creating the environment for life to begin. Sunset – for a beautiful sight to end the day. Sunrise – for a beautiful sight to start the morning.
  3. I am thankful for Second Chances- If you’ve ever forgiven or been forgiven, you know there’s nothing more encouraging, freeing and beautiful than second chances. It’s never too late to reconcile, reroute or redeem. If you’ve ever seen true love follow a horrific breakup, you know exactly how second chances can never be overrated.

Cherish the friends who cheer you on — and who commiserate with you all year round, whether you’re single, dating, or on good terms with your mom or not for being my companions in life.
