There’s so much to be thankful for, isn’t there?
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” — William Arthur Ward, writer
Reflecting on what I am grateful for is something I do each day. When my husband was fighting his nine-year battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare lung disease, we learned that no matter how difficult the day there was always something to be grateful for.
So sometime during the day we would take a moment to express out loud what we were most grateful for that day. It might the sunshine, the story a friend told us that made us laugh, a moment spent with our grandsons, or for him being able to breath for just a minute without pain.
But without a doubt everyday our family and friends were always part of our list. Today and everyday I am grateful to all my family and friends for the support they have given me during the past year.
Running for office is an exciting journey, and having people who support you each step of the way makes the journey so much more worthwhile. I want you to know how very much I appreciate not only your support but your friendship. I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and let you know that on Thanksgiving Day as we go around the table sharing our blessings, each of you will be part of mine.
