Giving Thanks

Tomorrow I won’t be blogging, as I’ll be going for a Central Park run, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, and working in a soup kitchen in New York City, like last year. I’ll be having fun and counting my blessings. And working on my next book (I’ll tell you later) on the plane.


I’m thankful for my beautiful sons and daughters. I wanted them for years before they came to me, and each of them is a gift.


I’m thankful for lovely friends who support me when I pull something off, and carry me in the hard times. Kristin, Matthew, Jamie, Jean, Jennie… are my lifelines.


I’m thankful to have regained my health in the past 20 years. I am a better athlete,   I need far less sleep, I having a more positive outlook on life, I weigh less, I have much more energy, and I’m without chronic conditions. I’m on my knees with gratitude for that, because it makes everything else possible.


I’m thankful for the community of friends who read this blog. I know that you want the same things I do: for our loved ones, and us, to reach our potential.


I’m thankful for the freedom and opportunity to speak my mind, make mistakes, learn, and grow.


Thank you for being part of my world. I love the opportunity to reflect on my many blessings this week, and as often as possible.
