I’m thankful for a husband who rubs my cold hands without being asked.
I’m thankful for friends who encourage me to grow, to learn, to keep thinking, and to keep writing.
I’m thankful for family who loves me and lets me love them, no matter how quirky all of us can be.
I’m thankful my grandma is alive. I’m thankful my dad is alive.
I’m thankful for incredible in-laws who shatter every negative stereotype in-laws have ever inspired.
I’m thankful for a roof over my head, for potential future jobs, for the turkey currently in the oven, and for the fact that we have yet to go hungry.
I’m thankful for my president.
I’m thankful for the liberty to pursue and enjoy my religious convictions.
I’m thankful for life.
And now, in no particular order, a photo montage that feels rather representative of my life this year.
Happy Thanksgiving. May the road take you wherever you want to go!
