I love Thanksgiving time. It’s a fabulous opportunity to bring gratitude and appreciation into focus, and to think not only about the blessings we have in our lives, but also the challenges, bumps and tribulations — and to cherish them all.
I read somewhere recently that we should be very thankful for our challenges, as millions of people would be thrilled to be experiencing the challenges we have. That struck a deep chord with me, and thinking of that everyday helps me remember that no matter what I am facing in my life today, I can learn, grow and heal through it, even the hurt and disappointment.
I’d love to take this opportunity to send my deepest thanks and appreciation to you for being an important and valued member of my community.
This year has been an incredible one, full of learning and insight (and some sizable stretching too!). Receiving your open and generous feedback, support and diverse perspectives has been so meaningful and helpful to me. I’ve learned a great deal from all my colleagues, readers, and followers, as well as from the powerful challenges and opportunities this year has brought.
I look forward to continuing to learn and grow together in 2015 and the years to come.
Wishing you a beautiful Thanksgiving and holiday season with your special friends and loved ones.
