Thankful?

I have struggled greatly this week with the whole concept of Thanksgiving. Life has been so confused and filled with stress, especially after my accident in late August. But, then I think back to a year ago at this time. When my co-workers and I were facing an uncertain future with an impending lay-off. We all went our separate ways, but are essentially still together though now mostly online, virtually.

And I guess really, the future will always be uncertain. What is important is how we approach it. We could cringe, cry and complain along the way or we can bravely go forth and take all that life has to offer. It is not all good, but that’s alright as there needs to be a balance. In looking back now, I am thankful for those friends, both virtual and those in my everyday life. You all helped me through the uncertain times in the past year in some way. Some days I leaned on you, other days you leaned on me. And of course, there were those days where we simply propped each other up.

So thank you friends, old and new, for giving me something to be thankful for. I consider myself truly blessed to know each and every one of you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mary

It pretty amazing to me that a whole year has passed Mary. I'm sure to you in some ways it seems like just yesterday.

Helping each other out is the way of friends and I for one am so glad you are my friend!

May the next year bring you the knowledge that you can get through anything that comes your way. I think you are doing a good job of that now.

I too feel very blessed to have you as my friend. Peace be with you and yours.

Yeah Elizabeth, a year has passed. Time is going way too fast. Remember what a mess I was worrying about passing my classes in my 1st semester back at school. And then also trying to be upbeat and cheerful for Good News Wednesday! I couldn't have done it alone.
