Thanksgiving 2010

Turkey2 Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday so much so that I do it twice. Once with family and then again for Turkey2 with friends. On the drive home from Hanover, NH I had a chance to reflect on all the things I’m thankful for:

  • My family and friends whose love and support make it all worth while
  • The opportunity I have to build, make connections, lend a hand, and create things worth fighting for
  • My health – I’ve taken it for granted until a little ER visit this year
  • Vermont – There is nothing better than seeing the Green Mountains unfold into Lake Champlain and the village lights twinkle as I wing my way back from some far off city
  • Music – It never fails to lift me up on bleak days or send me driving to Montreal to dance the night away
  • Travel – It makes me a better person. To see a different patch of the world and then return home to appreciate what you have at home.

So, raise a glass with me as we sit around the table and toast all that we have to be thankful for. It is humbling. Cheers…

Happy Thanksgiving…

Happy Turkey day to you and yours. There is a lot to be Thankful for this year. Family, friends, and good health. In the last few months cancer has suddenly struck hard at three people in my circle. All three face it with more grace and strength than I could hope to muster. They are a resilient crew and I daily think about their fight. So, this season I’m thankful for one knowing them and two for their inspiring me to live better. Life is short.

As we gather for T2(a tradition of a second gathering of friends) tomorrow around my table I will raise my glass in thanks for having them in my life. And I plan to take a little extra time for hugs this season…as they can be in short supply in this rushed life we lead.
