Thanks at Thanksgiving

by DRM

I know I have the life I have because of T.  Not just the things around me, but the way I see them.

She gets the first Thanks.

My children who have shown me that life is fueled by unsquashable optimism get the second Thanks.

My family who has provided the foundation of memory that forms the way that I go out into the world, regardless of what I’ve experienced in the world since, gets the third Thanks.

Each of you who has spent time reading my work sometime leaving comments and always letting me be a writer who holds you for a moment: you get the public Thanks.  Our relationship was something that was unexpected and has added richness to my world.

Happy Thanksgiving.
