Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrate this holiday! It’s a wonderful time to be thankful for the people who are in our lives, those familial bonds and friendships that help us sail through life’s up and downs. As heartbreaking as it is to lose a friend this week, I am grateful for friendship that ended too soon. Grateful for my friend’s calm and grounded advice on parenting. Grateful for the moments we’ve shared together in the soccer field as we cheered our girls on those cold November days. Grateful for her advice on books and reading. Grateful for her generosity.
She was a courageous fighter until the very end and I will miss her terribly.
I know it’s a cliché but life is too short. We need to all be thankful for the gift of a new day, of another opportunity to start all over again with our loved ones.
Family, Friends, Faith, and Fight. That was my friend’s mantra to the end….
