It’s a beautiful, sunny Monday morning here – and it’s Thanksgiving weekend.
It’s Monday morning and although I do love my job, I’m not working! For this, I give many thanks.
Instead, I’m cozy on the couch in my yoga pants, with coffee, Ellen, and a laptop. I”ve been downloading my pictures from the weekend.
It was a lovely, fun-filled, food-filled, family weekend. For this, I give many thanks.
It was nice to be together with everyone, including the Pooch. We cooked turkey, ate pie and laughed more than I have laughed in a long, long time. For this, I give many thanks.
And the pie!
My Mom bakes the most delicious pie! For this, I give many thanks.
Today, I will putter around my lovely little house which I love and get ready for the upcoming week. For this, I give many thanks.
It won’t be an easy week. I have some challenges ahead of me. A meeting I’m not looking forward to. A policy to write on a subject about which I know nothing – definitely a good learning experience. However, I’ve had enough adversity in the last ten years that I know I will sail through all of this. It may take some yoga-breathing in the moment, but I can handle it.
Adversity is tough in the moment, but it certainly teaches life skills that are priceless. For this, I give many thanks.
And, after a weekend of indugence, and alot of conversation about the many paths to good health, I’m going to make prepping for a healthy week a priority today. My sisters are a constant source of motivataion and inspiration. I am sad for everyone else in the world because these two women are the best sisters on the planet, and they’re mine.
For this, I give many, many thanks.
