What do you know? The whole month of November flew by!
I remember older people telling me that time speeds up as you get older. I always sort of brushed it off, but I now know that to be very true.
In a week, Mike will turn 40. A week or so after that, Michaela will be seven. Time is flying.
As I tried to post each day something for which I was thankful, I also found that the days flew by. Hence the posts a day (or a few days) late. I will say, though, that not a day went by that I didn’t think “what was I thankful for today,” even if I didn’t blog about it. And ultimately, that’s a pretty special thing. I hope to carry that spirit with me in coming weeks (and months and years, since they all seem to last about four seconds).
This month had some really difficult spots. I’ve tried to respond by sharing my good fortune – financially – with different groups. I’m thankful to have the ability to do that. I have also tried to share my time, making phone calls, sending emails, signing petitions, etc.
I have written here at various times this month about how lucky I am to have such great friends and family. As cliche as it sounds, that’s the thing that sticks with me most after this month of focusing on gratitude. If you’re reading this, you’re probably either a friend or a relative, so I’ll say it: I’m thankful for you!
I am fortunate indeed!
