November 22nd is Thanksgiving day.  It’s a day when each of us can reflect on all of the reasons we have to be thankful. I am thankful for my husband, children and grandchildren. They are my joy.

I am thankful for my siblings and their families. It is a wonderful feeling being part of a big extended family.

I am thankful for friendships with cousins and others with whom I have relationships. It’s awesome to have friends to share the good, the bad and know, no matter what they are there for me.

I am thankful for my job. I remember growing up with a disability and thinking no one would ever hire a person who is blind. It is a blessing to work for an organization who sees people’s abilities and doesn’t see a disability as a bad thing but some thing that just is.

I am thankful for the opportunity of knowing Roger Frischenmeyer. All the peer surrort we provided each other, all the years of working together and sharing successes and challenges, through laughter and even some tears; it is a treasured friendship that lives on in my heart.

I could go on and on; I am very blessed. Please feel free to share your thoughts thos Thanksgiving.

What makes you thankful?
