giving thanks

I’m sitting here in the room I created as my “office”; my little sanctuary space filled with all the things I love: photos, music, books and lots of natural light.  This space is designed just for me so that I feel inspired to write.  Today, I don’t have to reach too far for inspiration.  It’s looking out on the snow-covered yard and the naked trees.  It’s knowing I’m safe and warm inside my home with the smells of a home-made dinner mingling with the Autumn scented candles.  It’s feeling close at heart to my family who are all ten hours away celebrating this same day.

I have an obscene amount to be thankful for.  I try every day to embrace that attitude.  I do my best to stay mindful of that and give thanks for each blessing.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, dear ones, I hope you all have a day full of love and laughter surrounded by family and friends; a belly full of food and a thankful heart.

Sending love to you.

One thought on “giving thanks

  1. Ryan, I love the fact that you have your own little nook in your home. You are one of the few friends of mine who understand the need. A place to relax, be alone with your thoughts, surrounded by things you love. From my observations there are so many people who aren’t comfortable with being alone to just think and reflect. They are the ones who turn the TV on when they get home and THEN take their coats off.

    I think you and I sort of “get” each other in many ways . I’m happy to call you my friend.
