thanksgiving, thankful, grateful, rtconnections

November is the month when we celebrate Thanksgiving – a day for us to reflect and be grateful. Perhaps it’s because we’re nurses and know how precious life is that we recognize that while material things are nice, we realize that it’s the humans in our lives – not the stuff that matters most.
What I am thankful for this year:

I’m thankful to have met and married the most amazing human – my husband, Ashley. He reminds me that there’s nothing more important in life than serving others.  

I’m thankful for raising two daughters, Kaitlin and Courtney who are beautiful inside and out. They are kind, love to make me laugh and remind me to always find a way to be silly. 
…my mom who when I visit (she lives in California) makes me creamy macaroni and cheese, makes sure she has a few bottles of my favorite wine (Coppola Claret) and even crochets me a poncho from time to time.
…my dad who keeps me in line (recently told me that I had a shelf life and that I needed to slow down!), reminds me of the importance of family and to always do the right thing – no matter what.
…my siblings – Jerry, Tina, Erik and Amy. Even though we are scattered across the country, we would stop at nothing to protect and take care of each other. Blood is blood.
…my friends – Kimmy, Dina, Joanne, Lynn…and the list could go on forever.  Without your encouragement, I wouldn’t be where and who I am today.
…my team at RTConnections who keeps growing.  Ashley (hubby and Business Manager), Bobbie (Graphic Artist and Web designer) and ReNie (Event Coordinator). You all totally rock!
And I’m thankful for you, my subscribers, who support, inspire, and help me to wake up every morning with a spring in my step.
Who are YOU thankful for this year? I’ve love to know.
Many blessings to you and your family.
Take care and stay connected
