This year, I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for my family, who I appreciate more than ever now that I’m away from them. (Even if I want to strangle my mother 10 minutes after walking in the door.) I am thankful for my friends, both the old ones who buoy me as I go through yet another life change, and the new ones who are making this side of that change so much more enjoyable. I am thankful for new cities and new adventures, which scare me, excite me and push me to grow all at the same time. And I am thankful for the passage of time, which heals most things, and allows me to make new and different mistakes (or at least forget about the old ones before I make them again).
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. Hope it’s lovely wherever you are.
