It’s the week of Thanksgiving. Everyone is hustling to make sure their feast with family and friends is perfect. They’re laying out the game plan for hitting the best sales. Perfection seems to be the goal. The perfect holiday. The perfect family gathering. The perfect gift.
In that drive for perfection, we tend to lose sight of what is right in front of us. The small perfectly imperfect moments that lend themselves to creating the fondest memories. We lose sight of the simple things that make us smile.
So, in this week of giving thanks, I want to say…..I’m thankful for my family, near and far. I’m thankful for my friends, wherever they are. I’m thankful for the laughter and smiles of my child. I’m thankful for the readers, whose enthusiasm encourages me to write. The song of the birds, the caress of the wind, the quiet stillness of the falling snow, the light of the moon..casting her glow. I’m thankful.
