Despite the red and green decorations sprouting up everywhere, Thanksgiving is just around the corner. What are you thankful for? Me? There have been a lot of changes for me this year, but I’m starting to see the forest through all those trees.
I’m thankful for…..
-my aunt who has helped me through the break-up of my marriage and the death of my father, plus given me a place to stay.
-my boss/best friend who has helped more than either one of us truly realize.
-finally being able to see the true me when I look in the mirror. It never would have happened if I were still with my ex. I didn’t care for his method, but the outcome has been amazing.
– having my family around me. Not just relatives, but friends also. Each one means the world to me. I wouldn’t trade you guys for anything. Not even chocolate.
– the one special friend who has shown me that no matter how much the past has hurt, the present can be much more interesting. He’s helped me hear the muse again, and helped me find my passion, passion for life, love, music, him, everything. He’s helped me learn to care again, to not be afraid of letting someone get close. The funny thing is that he knows there’s a connection there, but he doesn’t realize just how close he’s gotten. He’s given me the opportunity to recognize hope for what it is, another opportunity to find the dream with the happy ending.
I’m looking forward to a new year. I’m sure the road will be bumpy, but I’m much better equipped to deal with those hazards than I used to be. And I know I’ll have good company along for the ride.
