Throughout my Facebook newsfeed I see ’30 days of Thanksgiving’ posts scattered amongst pictures of delicious food, family gatherings, and wishes for the holiday. I’m grateful that the vast majority of people seem to be enjoying themselves and appreciating what they have. But what about the other 364 days of the year?
Be thankful DAILY. Remain humble and put things into perspective. Somebody, somewhere suffers more than you do. By contrast, your biggest tragedy could be a welcome relief to somebody else. I am ‘without’ my kids but I know where they are and what they’re doing. They’re healthy, happy, and loved. When I think of friends like Tasha and Tim who are literally without a child, how can I complain?
Gratitude [and a sense of humor] helps me survive.
I’m thankful for those individuals who have impacted my life– be it family, friends, star dwellers, or people of the past. Every one of you gave me knowledge and wisdom from which I have learned.
And I’m especially thankful for the opportunity to have known people like *Lauren Witty.* Happy birthday, sweet girl! Rest in peace.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
