Thank you, thank you silence
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.
It's blowing my mind that it feels like last Turkey Day was just yesterday.
Things have changed a lot since last year.
And that's ok.
Even when things change you can often look around and see how some things still remain the same.
I can think of a ton of things I'm thankful for.
The biggest being that I am still here to experience what every new days brings.
I am thankful for the people in my life.
I am thankful that no matter how far away you are or how long it's been since you've seen someone you can still pick up where you left off.
I am thankful for laughter and for those who make me laugh.
I am thankful for a place to sleep and food to eat.
For random phone calls from whoever on a bad day.
I am thankful for emails and letters reminding me to keep going.
I am thankful that people still get together in the name of friendship and grilled hamburgers and it's a good time no matter what's going on.
I am thankful that even though it seems like everyone's going through bad times there are still people helping each other out.
I am thankful for my family. I am happy I got to spend time in Michigan and Wisconsin with them.
I am thankful for being able to remember the good times and moments surrounding those who are no longer with us.
I am thankful for good music and good books.
I am thankful for understanding. Even though people may not be able to fully relate to my daily struggles, they still give me room to breathe and cope and still offer hands to hold and shoulders if I need to cry on them.
I am thankful that I have gotten a better grip on things and can move forward with everything instead of feeling like all is lost.
I am thankful for love.
So....what are you thankful for?
