Thanksgiving


The hubs has safely returned from Honduras, and today will be a day of family-- I am very thankful for that. We are starting this morning off with a small fun run, then off to my true homeland of Long Island to see our wild, wonderful relatives. My grandmother is also spending a few days with us, and it feels so good to see her. Thanksgiving may be devoted to recognizing the treasures in our lives and acknowledging our gratitude, but let's try to do that every day. There are so many precious things life has to offer, so many special moments and experiences, and it is so comforting to realize what we already have.

"Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto
Me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados.
Con ellos anduve ciudades y charcos,
Playas y desiertos, montaƱas y llanos,
Y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio."

"Thank you to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me the steps of my tired feet.
With them I have traversed cities and puddles
Valleys and deserts, mountains and plains.
And your house, your street and your garden."

--"Gracias a la Vida," sung by Violeta Parra
