Happy Thanksgiving.

Recently my words have been few and far between. Over the past couple of weeks I have been feeling quite ill and it was all I could do to get through the day, but I am feeling much better these days and I want to thank everyone who continues to leave comments and send emails. It amazes me how such a simple act of kindness can help brighten my day.
These past couple of years have been tough and chaotic and I am often moved by the spirit of gestures handed our way. It is hard to put into words what only tears can describe.
This year I have a lot to be thankful for. The presence of each day, my family and friends. Each moment in time is significantly different, and yet somehow connected to the bigger picture. I have had a lot to reflect on, and while it has been hard we seem to roll with the punches. I have kind of adopted the attitude of not taking things too serious.
I would like to take the time to apologize to all those I still owe an email. I'm not ignoring you. Sometimes some days are just difficult and hopefully I will get a chance to respond to everyone before too long.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a lovely Thanksgiving, and that you all enjoy time with your friends and your family.

  4. In my country we don't celebrate Thanksgiving.However I think it's not the specific Holiday that matters but the feelings it represents. One of the many things I'm grateful for is to have found you and your beautiful family even if not in person...
    Stay well my friend.

  5. I'm so grateful to know that in between the moments of feeling so terribly ill...you are indeed finding moments of relief and joy...everything is temporary...ocean tides of illness and comfort...

    sending you healing energy and prayers beaux as always.

  6. I don't know if my last message got through...anyway, I'm glad that in between feeling awful you also feel AWE-full for the goodness in your life despite the suffering. It's strange but true, that our suffering can be an opportunity to pay more attention to the blessings...wish you didn't have to suffer at all my friend, but am so grateful that you are having moments of relief in between.
