48. 2013 Thanksgiving Edition

I am grateful for the holidays, a time when we can forgive family, and friends come together and set aside our petty differences. The school semester is winding down and I only need to work hard for a couple more weeks. I had a great year and I am looking forward to next year.  We are making plans for Christmas and New Years and there is plenty of celebration yet to come!!

Yesterday I had my second “Orphan Family Thanksgiving” at my house.  The whole day was filled with love and life, good smells, great tastes and incredible memories.  After the 40 days of Grateful living there are a few that I know come up every few days.  Friends, I have the greatest group of friends around me that only come from doing my part to be a friend.  Family, My family tree has so many pieces that make up this life I have.  I am grateful for all of them.  Life, I know in this moment I am blessed to be having this experience, It is my role to live with this knowledge and spread my divine spark with the world.  Thanks for being a part of my journey.

Thankful for Laughter

Last night some friends stopped by who were going through some real life, hard stuff. As they were en route to my house I was trying to think of ways to help and make things better. Luckily I did not think of anything. Instead of me trying to “fix” the situation we sat around the kitchen table and laughed about a ton of different things. It was amazing, and made me truly grateful for the medicine of laughter.

What makes you laugh? Challenge yourself to make someone else laugh. Today I am going to commit myself to making others laugh. Thank You Life!
