Because one day of Thanksgiving isn't enough (3 of 7)
Like every year, I happily reserve Thanksgiving proper to give thanks for the people in my life who make it everything that it is. It doesn't even make sense to imagine my life without the people in my days, my months, my years, and the lives we make together, and in parallel, and in broad community with each other. Almost all of my most treasured blessings in life are my friends and family, or things those people have brought into my life with them. Every day, I feel lucky in the people I know, and the more difficult the world is, the more grateful I am in my near and dear, and the sense of hope they help me to nurture, even in darker times.
