simply thankful

One of my dearest friends from high school lost her mom this year and I think often of how, in the middle of her sadness, she said that maintaining a sense of gratitude is what keeps her connected to her mom. I'm sure it's not easy, but in working her way from sad to grateful she somehow always gets to a better place. Gratitude is such a personal, quiet, humble thing of the heart. It's also life-affirming and transformative, a blessing beyond measure. Happy Thanksgiving.
