I love Thanksgiving. I love that it’s the beginning of the Holiday season. So many people celebrate so many things during this part of the year and it’s all great fun. I love that my family gets together most years – except for my one very far away sister who we always miss. I love all the food and I love that I can pretend that I am not constantly concerned about what I’m eating. I love that I can start decorating for Christmas and I love that my mom has taught me how to do it right. (She has 12 trees in her house this year) Here are the three I could see while standing in one spot.
Anyway, just like many of you, I start to think about all the things I’m thankful for and this year I am thankful for my job. I’m thankful that I’m in a position that I can pursue this crazy life. I mean, for what other career could I dress up and go pet a sheep?
And I’m thankful for the friends that I’ve made while working. I’ll just name 2 here but there are so many others.
Jacey Boggs! Fantastic teacher, wonderful writer and owner of this magazine that I love so much.
And Jillian Moreno who is also an extraordinary teacher, the kind of writer that makes you laugh and learn at the same time and a person who always is pushing me to be better.
Aren’t they pretty?
Ask me about all the other ones too. I could go on and on. But right now I need to go eat some pie.
I was just thinking about how thankful I am, as well. What a crazy year this has been, hard and stressful and wonderful. I’m so thankful for PLY, for people willing to leap, for believers, for lovers, for spinners, for you, my friend. I’m very thankful for you.
Jillian too. And yes, she’s so pretty!
I am so thankful for having you both in my life! I never enjoy working harder than when you two are involved.
