And I’m thankful to live in a place that is rich in the arts.

    I’m thankful for my friends, loved ones, and colleagues.

    I’m thankful our nation, state, and community hasn’t yet fully turned its back on the poorest and most vulnerable among us.

    I’m thankful people work together to protect people in poverty and crisis.

    I’m thankful for what I have, and what I have to give.

    I’m thankful for the things that keep me humble.

    I’m thankful I don’t have to do it alone.

    Mostly, I’m thankful for my tiny baby daughter, and that there’s a chance she’ll live in a more just and equitable society.

  • Kathy Brown

    I’m thankful for new insight. There will be 10 (friends and family) gathered around our table tomorrow. As I cook and clean I’m working on just that, and not getting attached to the perfection of the meal. I am feeling liberated and incredibly thankful.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!
