I could get all philosophical today. I could delve deeply into the reasons why I am NOT thankful this particular Thanksgiving day. I could gush endlessly about the things that I AM thankful for. But for once, I'm going to keep it simple.
Despite all the obstacles life throws in your way, despite the seemingly insurmountable hardships you may face, despite all the advantages or disadvantages you were born with, have acquired or lost or have yet to discover, you cannot control where you began but you can absolutely shape where you're going and where you will end. I thank you for taking the time to read this, for allowing me to share a small piece of my heart and soul with you and for continuing to return to this place. People matter above all else and for you, I am truly thankful.
