Every morning I take a walk with my dog and at the end of the road I stop and look out over the canyon and give thanks for the blue skies, the hawks soaring on the wind and the warmth of the sun on my face. It’s then I realize how grateful I am for those rare moments we experience throughout the day that fill our hearts and make us smile.
Thinking back over the extraordinariness of 2020 what I find so disconcerting is that we’ve been forced to give up our traditions and community, the things we hold most dear. It’s definitely a challenge to stay balanced and not give in to the uncertainty that surrounds us.
Thanksgiving is a holiday of the heart. It’s the one day that we stop and give thanks to our family and friends and all those rare moments we experience together. In this time of gratitude, I’m giving thanks for a year that has given me time - time to rebirth, to work on my business, to discover creativity, and to cleanse my life of everything that’s untrue. I wish the same for you! I am grateful for our friendship!
