The Human Spirit - Dedicated To My Great Friend Teresa York

Sometimes I get bogged down with all that is wrong with the world.  Then I am reminded of what is right with the world.  I am thankful to have some time here on this planet with the wonderful people around me, my family, friends, clients, co-workers (who are my friends, too).

I think of the human spirit and what people I know have overcome - the Holocaust, my daughter battling daily migraines and thriving through chronic pain, illnesses in my relatives, brave clients who battle for the rights of themselves and to make this place better for others, and other challenges we all face. I am so thankful to have these wonderful people in my life.

I want to dedicate this Thanksgiving to Teresa York. She posted on Facebook and her words have moved me,

On this Thanksgiving I am so very uplifted by my family and friends - from my children and sister to my extended family - old dear friends and all of my wonderful friends at work ... I am so very grateful for all of them and wish for them health and happiness. Never have I felt more acutely aware of living in the moment and never have the moments been more filled with more happiness!"

Here's to you, Teresa, you have developed such courage and grace.  Happy Thanksgiving!
