Drop below the story line with me.
Beyond the clean and polished Thanksgiving story you read in history books and beyond the true story...drop below to a day to pause and give Thanks! Ideally, we know this is every day, and in fact, every moment, but here we are on a day where there is a collective thanks.
I like that.
I am thankful for my family and friends that love me when I am beautiful, and when I am ugly.
I am thankful for what I have learned in the past year, even if it was heart-wrenching and painful.
I am thankful for those moments of Connection that are so immense you feel you could just burst.
I am thankful for the Sacred!
But, I am also thankful for the profane.
I am thankful for toilet paper and the fact I can use it all by myself!
I am thankful for Post-Its, new Sharpies and glue sticks.
I am thankful for glitter and odd treasures.
I am thankful that when I bake my family cookies, I get to eat the dough.
