This blog post isn’t exactly an article. It is certainly not a Top 10 list or tips on winterizing your home (though that’s on the agenda).
This post is simply to state what I’m grateful for and to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
I am grateful for my parents who live close by and for my in-laws who are essentially my other parents and friends.
I am thankful for my sometimes crazy, but always caring sister, Kristin, up in Virginia and hopeful we’ll someday live nearby again.
I am thankful for my extended family in Virginia and here in the Carolinas.
I am grateful for my friends, some who I see and talk to on a regular basis, as well as those who I can go ages apart from and fall back into step with like a day hasn’t passed between us.
I am grateful for my colleagues and for having a career that I love and that excites me and teaches me something new every day, and for the successes I’ve experienced and those that are yet to come.
I am thankful to no longer work in retail sales — no offense, T-Mobile — and to be on the golf course with my dad on Black Friday instead of working.
|I am grateful for the all-blue Color Rush Panthers unis.|
I am thankful for the undefeated Carolina Panthers, who are 10-0 this season heading into today’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys.
I am grateful for the great weather — 60 degrees and sunny in Charlotte — and great food and fellowship that will be shared with family today.
I am thankful to live in the small American town of Waxhaw, North Carolina and to feel safe on a day-to-day basis despite the chaos taking place in this crazy world.
I am grateful to be alive and to live, laugh, and love, because that is what life is all about.
And I am thankful for you all — my readers, my supporters, my friends and family, my clients, my neighbors…
And I am grateful for God and / or whatever reason we get to experience this meaningful life!
Thank you all!
