So often, during this time of year, we get stressed out and overwhelmed with all the things we have to do. Classroom parties to attend, gifts to buy and wrap, parties to throw, finals to take… and we lose sight of the real meaning of the season.
While Christmas and Hanukkah tend to be about gift giving, the New Year is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. Before we can look ahead, we need to take a look back and reflect on the year that passed.
In this past year, 2012, I have so much to be thankful for: an amazing husband, a job I adore, fantastic family and friends, a house to live in with our beautiful dog… I’m beyond thankful for all of these people and things.
In particular though, I want to send a special thank you to my sister. I know, I talk about her a lot, but that’s just the food aspect of things. She had a particularly rough year, and I want to thank her for pushing through and not giving up when things got bad. She’s thrived this year, and I’m forever thankful for the relationship we have.
