I’ve never been a believer in giving thanks one day a year. I *try* to keep a heart of gratitude year-round (although some days it’s more of a struggle, admittedly). As is with everyone who pauses for the moment between turkey and football, I am grateful for the things we take for granted every day — food, shelter, family, friends, a job, etc. I’m not trying to downplay the importance of these things by any means, but next May, when stress threatens to overtake me, my family is driving me insane, the bills are piling high, and I really want to punch someone in the face, I am challenging myself to stop and be thankful for the things that I take for granted. (Feel free to keep me accountable).

As the country remembers and lists the things they are thankful for, looking back over the last year, I just wanted to say thanks, for one thing, today (not that I’m not thankful for a whole long, long, long list of things, of course).

I’m especially thankful for those that never left. No matter what. You know who you are.

Happy Thanksgiving.
