Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for writing your beautiful post.
Yes, all these qualities we are grateful for take time and effort to develop. So I'm also thankful for your ability and mine to keep developing as we improve the quality of our being and thus, the quality of our lives.
I love the way you talk about your children, Tracy. I'm thankful for your ability to love them, appreciate them and take delight and inspiration from their presence in your life. Kids get that. :)
I'm thankful that my experience and perspectives I offer on this site contribute to your healing and growth. It's such a joy to me to know that my site supports you in your so very worthwhile efforts to live well in health.
