It’s Thanksgiving! My favorite holiday of the year. I love this time of year… though this year seems to have come and gone in a blink of an eye! Maybe it’s living in New York City. The city is so fast paced. Maybe that’s what makes each year go by faster and faster.
Goodbyes to a year are always difficult. Autumn turns the air chillier, pales out the sun, and warms the colors of the leaves. You start evaluating your life as Autumn leaves. A sort of New Year’s resolutions in reverse. I look back to who I’ve lost along the way and who I gained. People may decide to move on or drift away, but Autumn is something I can count on. It always returns … and so does Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for a lot this year. It hasn’t been an easy year. My small group of friends and family are what have gotten me through it. During hard times you learn more about yourself. You also learn more about those you choose to surround yourself with. So this year I am thankful most of all for my family and friends. They are the people who have made my year special and survivable.
So before you go Autumn… and your colder sister Winter sneaks in … I’d just like to say “thank you.” Thank you to all those who have warmed my heart on cold days and put a smile on my face other days. I hope I have done the same for you. Happy Thanksgiving!
