To whom it may concern, whoever is listening, nature and everything -
Today I am thankful for the health and safety of those I love (thank you Sondy for reminding me).
For my friends and family, whose understanding, love and patience surpass what I could ever deserve.
For being able to turn my hobby into a job I love and survive doing it.
For the people who support, provide feedback and help me do and be better - despite my shortcomings and my missteps.
For the love of the man I Iove - for talking to me, bringing levity to my life and not getting all worked up like I do. He just says, "it is what it is" and keeps moving forward. I will never take your "joie de vivre" for granted.
For my children - who have taught me how to keep on loving even when I am tired, scared, frustrated or angry.
For a house (aka "the red barn") that is now a home filled with children (see above), energy, silliness, drama, laughter and one big happy dog.
