Everyone I talk to keeps saying the same thing: they can’t believe it is Thanksgiving already.
For me, this year was far less of a blur than last year and the year before that, and I am very grateful. I made a choice to savor life a little more this year, remove as much busy as I could, cut back on shows and perfection and worry and stress. It was a good decision.
And now I sit here on this frosty morning with a purring kitten in my lap, and there is so much to be thankful for.
How easily we forget that.
Life is never perfect. It isn’t supposed to be.
It’s supposed to be full. We’re supposed to feel it all, the joy, the pain, the boredom, the anxiety. The sun on our faces in summer, the cold biting wind of winter. Flood and drought, storm and calm, day and night.
These are the lessons I’ve learned this year.
Plenty of them, ripe, for the taking.
A feast of fortitude.
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and light.
