Because one day of Thanksgiving is not enough (4 of 7)

Always, always, always my greatest thanks and sense of blessing is for and from my family, my friends, my loves. All the details of my life are dressing to the main dish of the people who make my days more joyous, more curious, deeper, weirder, more hilarious.

You all hold my hands when I need comfort. You tell me jokes and make me laugh. You give me a home to come to and be who I am, even when I don't know who that is. You challenge me to be better, you inspire me to do and reach for more. You give m the gifts of approval and discontent.

My people are, when I get down to it, the root of who and how I want to be in the world. Connected, intertwined, supportive and supported. And always with both laughter and tears, sweetness and bitterness, sunshine and night.

I am blessed and lucky and thankful for you.
