“The aim is to balance the terror of being alive with the wonder of being alive.”
This was a week to remember. I, for one, learned that sometimes the biggest (literally!) clouds have the biggest silver linings.
I'm thankful for:
- a roof over my kids' heads
- clean clothes
- clean water
- fresh food
- cold refrigerators
among other things.
But I'm most thankful for people. Friends (and that includes blog friends!) and family who had sobering realizations of how much we care about each other. But I'm also very thankful for people I will probably never even meet. I can't express my gratitude adequately in words. I'm passing the buck and going with photos this week.
