Giving Thanks.

In a time when some feel there isn’t too much to be thankful for with environmental issues, the recession, and lay off’s, I still feel very lucky to have the kind of life that I have. It is so easy to go down that spiral, become a victim and whine.  These days, it seems like the older I get, the more appreciative I am of everything… and mostly, the little things. For example, I am ever so grateful for my family, my friends who have become my family, for a roof over my head, for healthy food, for the lovely clean air that I breathe, for the love of a man who actually “gets me,” and for the opportunities I continue to receive for creative work.  In the same breathe, I am also thankful for other stuff like the writers of Modern Family and 30 Rock, for the person who created Almond Milk, and the simplicity of Tom’s Shoes.

Ever since I became a part of The Whole 9 a few years ago, I have been thankful to be given the opportunity to write and voice an opinion, as well as to share some sage thoughts on a career in communications with others, in hopes that it can help someone else’s path be a little easier to tread.  As well, I have been so fortunate to learn by others involved in this wonderful little Whole 9 world.  I can go on and on, but since everyone already seems to be running around prepping for the holidays, I just wanted to keep this particular blog brief.

Before I leave cyber space, I wanted to thank the gang at The Whole 9 for ALL that you do.  You know who you are.  You’ve created a community of forward thinkers and I am so proud to be a small part of it.  I look forward to more!

Happy Thanksgiving all;)  What are you thankful for?

  1. I’m thankful that you took the time to write that…and for hugs and smiles, the sunshine, friends, family, great health, fresh food, clean water, smooth sheets, warm showers, washing machines, lightweight laptops and fast internet connection, money to pay the bills, giggles, jiggles and tickles, all the dishes my friend Victoria bought me last week to cheer me up (no sh#t), the fact that theredhead offered to pick up my turkey on the way to the office tomorrow morning, Rosendo’s unexpected visit to the gallery yesterday, etc., etc., etc.

    Life is good.

  2. Gratitude is a beautiful thing~Love your blog post!:) I’m thankful for many things and like you said many of those things are simple and priceless they involve people, kindness and heart-Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Lisa, I love your new dishes! Hope you served a bright & happy thanksgiving dinner on them! (nothing like new china to cheer a girl up!…it is a weakness of mine too.) I am thankful for everything….my wonderful family, my wonderful friends,
    a warm roof over my head, healthy food, hot and cold running water, the natural surroundings around me….the crazy racoons that come onto my deck and peek in my windows! Its all good!

  4. I’m thankful for so many things…if I start listing them I might not stop! ;) New dishes…I’m with Lisa and Judith…always fun! Just got some myself not that long ago…something about eating off of a new beautiful thing you enjoy looking at that gives off a nice feeling…
