It’s my most favorite holiday of the year! Happy Thanksgiving!
There’s always a bit of a conversation in the United States about Thanksgiving because on the one hand, it is a reminder of some very imperialist, negative things that our ancestors did.
But on the other hand, it’s a time to get together with loved ones and have no commitment except to feel grateful. Unlike Christmas and Valentine’s Days with their gifts, or Labor and Memorial Day with their connotations of war, Thanksgiving is a time to sit back, focus on food, drink and being near loved ones.
For me, it’s also my partner and my anniversary. This is sixteen years with my person, who is always high on my list of blessings.
This year I am grateful for work that challenges and fulfills me, for creative efforts that continue to enrich me, for community that lifts me up, and an environment that brings me peace.
As part of the community I mention, thank you all for sharing your thoughts and laughs with me over the past year. I count myself fortunate indeed to have such wonderful people in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
What are you thankful for?
