I am the most thankful.

Today I am most thankful for the tenacity of the human spirit.  Our family has seen it’s toughest time this year. We have come out with a better understanding of one another and a deeper love for each other.

you may never truly know how wedded you are to the promises you have made to one another without weathering bumps in the road.  These bumps also give you a deeper appreciation for those left standing when dust settles.

I give thanks to my babies.  You are both incredible people.  I am so unbelievably proud to call you mine.  You are the reason my heart beats.  You are the best things I’ve done in this world.

i give thanks to my dad who is my partner in seeing every action movie to hit the big screen.  Above all else he has taught me to keep my chin up.

i give thanks to my brew for his sweetness and understanding.  Though he may not always have the words, he is always prepared to hear mine.

i give thanks to my bird for her quiet support. For her kindness and her ability to make me feel special. She will always be my baby sister. A relationship that I treasure.

i give thanks to my buddy.  the one who makes us a pair of bookends. Without whom my half would serve no purpose.  I can’t begin to tell you how much I have treasured having you home for this time.

i give thanks to my mother who has always been my safe place to fall.  You have offered understanding in a time when I could not muster it on my own.

i give thanks to stubby hubs hunk’s parents who have shown a sweet vulnerability in a tough time. You made me feel like I was doing just the right thing.

to my dear soultrain. You all have provided me gifts. Pieces of yourself. Laughter. A kind touch. Our first evening out.  The first step back into the new normal.

i give thanks to wonderful neighbors who were ever ready to help when needed.

i give thanks to my sweet stubby hubs hunk.  I am better with you than I am alone. you are my balance.   My tenderness.  You hold the key to the woman I have become as we have traversed this hilly road together.  I am amusedly surprised that this thing of ours continues to get bigger.  You get me and you don’t find the dark corners scary enough to turn tail.  Plainly you have stayed.  What more can a person ask for?


i sit in my pjs listening to mumford and sons.  Taking stock in all that I have to be thankful for.  I am made to think of those less fortunate than myself.  You’ll have to pardon me for saying it, but I am so blessed I believe that to be a very large group.

in short, I am the luckiest.
