Wednesday Bubble: Giving Thanks

Posted by on Nov 21, 2012 in Inspiration | 2 comments

Ain’t no Wednesday Bubble this week.

Granted, I thought about sharing news of a study about spa and your health. Or discussing how many calories Americans are actually drinking. Or,  providing you with healthy Thanksgiving meal tips. Instead, I felt it was more important to  share that I am truly thankful that you take the time out of your schedules to read Flashfree.  Truly thankful. And truly happy.

I had a book when I was growing up entitled “That Happy Feeling of Thank You.” I still have it. And sometimes I secretly linger in its battered pages and just pause for a moment.

“Thank you” is for not being afraid of darkness or being alone.”

“And, “thank you” is for growing up, too — For being brave enough to tell the truth — even when it would be easier not to.”

“Thank you” is to know a friend who will stretch out on the warm grass and pretend along with you that the whole world is upside down.”

What are you thankful for?

Seriously, take a moment and think about it.

Me? Although this has been one of the most challenging years in my entire career, with little time to breathe, I am eternally grateful for the work and income, for my friends who have put up with my crankies and my long absences, and for the few who’ve consistently held me up. You know who you are.

Thanksgiving really isn’t about eating; it’s about sharing and celebrating the gifts in our lives that really matter.

I am truly blessed.

Thank you.
