With Thanks

I give thanks for the day. It’s a lovely one here in NYC.

I give thanks for my husband. He inspires me to become a better person. Whether I want to become one or not. And he makes me laugh.

I give thanks for my health. In spite of the challenges of aging, I am in incredible health.

I give thanks for my trainer. See above.

I give thanks for my Buddhist practice and my Sensei. They have taught me to be thankful, to appreciate others, and to never be defeated, no matter what happens. What else matters, really?

I give thanks for my family. I appreciate them more every day.

I give thanks for my friends. Where would I be without them?

I give thanks for those who strive for peace and dialogue among people.

I give thanks for nature. It is amazing. See below.

I give thanks for the solar system and the universe. It continues to blow my mind.

And I give thanks to the typing manual I found in my Dad’s office when I was eleven. The book made it possible for me to write this note of appreciation without looking at the keys.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
