Happy Thanksgiving! Doug and I started of our day with a 90 minute Turkey Burn with our beloved Laurie Cole at SoulCycle. We may not eat turkey, but this special ride is something we look forward to all year. At the end of class Laurie asked us to think of one thing we are grateful for. I was immediatly flooded with overwhelming emotion.

I am grateful for so much. My husband, my family, my home, my health, my creativity. I am especially grateful for my father-in-law’s health. If any of us were being honest last year we were not sure he was going to be with us this Thanksgiving. Being able to share Thanksgiving dinner with him will be truly special. We never know what the future holds but to have made it almost one year since his diagnosis is a reason for true gratitude.

On the way home from class Doug asked me what came to mind when Laurie asked what we are grateful for. I said “your dad’s health.” I then asked him the same question. He looked at me and said , “You. It’s always you.”

I am grateful for true love.
