Thankful

 

Today I am thankful for many elements of my life:  family, Topanga family, friends, health and the ability to continually learn.  I am home with one daughter and two more on the way.  Tomorrow will be spent with extended family and Friday we will honor my mom, making our favorite family Thanksgiving foods and remembering those no longer with us at our Thanksgiving table and welcoming those new to our table.

In a world filled with so much good (books, blogs, art, film, plants, flowers, sunny days and gentle breezes) it still shocks and saddens me that some in this world resort to violence, hatred, bullying and unnecessary cruelty whether it is for a fractured belief or greed.  To these, I am thankful for a chance to change, to learn, to heal, to grow and become something better and more honorable.
