I try to acknowledge the many things that I am thankful for year round, not just on one day of the year.
I'm grateful for my husband. David is always there for me when I need him. His hand in mine means the world to me. It's also nice having a fellow biblio and cinephile around the house. I couldn't ask for a better partner and friend.
I'm grateful for our son. Tristan has a heart of gold and is always ready to help whenever I need it. His big hugs and kind words always fill my heart. I love my boy even when he's playing video games (Lego Batman 2 DC Superheroes) in my ear as I try to write this post.
I'm grateful for all of my students (each and every one of you both in person as well as online), many of whom I am happy to call my friends. I really don't know where I'd be without you guys. I am extremely thankful to be able to have a job that I love and adore. My students are the ones to thank for that (as well as the venues where I teach!) Words can't express the amount of gratitude that I have for you. Thank you. I sincerely mean it.
I am grateful to have found an art form in which I can pour my heart out into as much as I need to. I'm thankful that I have two hands, the gift of sight and the capability to cut, paste and write into my little books that nourish my heart, fill my soul and keep me sane.
I'm grateful to YOU for taking the time to read this long post. Whoever you are, wherever you are, I hope that you have a wonderful day full of things that nourish and fill your heart, mind and soul.
