HNT – Thankful

“A friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should.”

It’s not Thanksgiving, but it doesn’t take that day for me to realize how thankful I am for people.  Over the past few days, I am realizing how much I appreciate people – how lucky I am to have them in my life. I am thankful for G – my husband who loves me. I am thankful for my friends – Domenico and Lili. The puppy piles – the times we’ve had that have checked off items on bucket lists. Domenico who knows notices something is wrong and seeks to be there for me – taking me out for drinks and talks and hugs and kisses.  I’m thankful for random texts from Lili that remind me of the weekend fun – and future fun.   I’m thankful for Chaps who is such a good friend.  I am so blessed with those in my life.  I cannot say enough about them.  But I can say it out loud and publicly.

The last few days have been a roller coaster or emotion.  I’ve had ups and downs. And these people have all been there.  It’s funny how it is those times when you realize who is important  – who gets it.  And you appreciate them in more ways than you may have before.  Life is good.
