Today is the holiday that would be represent me, if I had to choose.
Not because I am thankful, but because we get to eat enough to feed a small impoverished nation and then nap with our pants undone.
Actually, I think that this year, I may be more thankful than any other year of my life, in spite of the fact it has been the most difficult year of my life. I am thankful that I live each day knowing the extent of my own strength. I am thankful that I know who my true friends are, and that I no longer have to waste my time and energy on the posers. I am thankful that I know what it is like to have my love tested, and know it is strong enough to overcome fear and insecurity. I am thankful for the happiness that those who are close to me have experienced this year, with marriages and births. I am thankful for my extended family, who have given me a place to lay my head when it is troubled, and feel safe and protected in my darkest hours. I am thankful that no matter the tests in relationships, that I have the opportunity to work through them.
I hope that you all have a great day today, and good eating!!!
