Today (well, properly, yesterday, now), I give thanks for people who practice kindness and compassion in their interactions with other people and the world. There's a lot of ways to be in the world, and this one makes it unconditionally better. Thank you, compassionate people, both for what you do and for what you inspire me to do.
Above all the other blessings of my life, by leaps and bounds, without a blink of an instant for thought, are the people. Thank you, people of my life. Thank you for giving me support, for challenging me to think, for blazing your own bright trails into the future. Thank you for struggling. Thank you for trying. Thank you for trusting and questioning and wondering and tripping and stumbling. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being in my life, in the world.
