Thank you for being here with me.

Taking the time to read.
To say hello.
Thank you for investing in art that nourishes.

Thank you for forgiving yourself.
Thank you for being wherever you have to be.
For blazing your trail.
Doing what you must do, whatever that is.
Thank you for having the courage to continue.

Thank you for carrying that pain so gracefully or not.
Thank you for being all put together or not.
Thank you for agreeing or not.
Thank you for believing or not.
Thank you for feeling rage or not.
Thank you for letting go or not.
Thank you for feeling joy or not.
Thank you for sharing or not.
Thank you for crying or not.
Thank you for being wealthy or not.

Thank you for going to the dark places.
And then coming back to teach me what you learned there.
Or not.

Thank you for being exactly you.
Right now.
I couldn’t do it without you.

Happy Thanksgiving.
