Even when things are rough, I can give thanks

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

It has been a roller coaster of a year for me, both personally and professionally.

And for the most part, the roller coaster hasn’t stopped long enough for me to get my bearings.

If you’re a roller coaster enthusiast, you know what that means: you tend to be a little scattered when it does come to a halt and you’re not always sure you’re standing on firm ground.

From panic attacks that simulated a heart attack to Tom’s move to Florida to Claude’s unexpected death, I’ve been through a lot but in it all, I have been able to still give thanks.

It wasn’t a heart attack.

Tom is in Florida.

And through Claude’s death, I have learned lessons that will be with me forever.

And for all this I am thankful.

Additionally, and traditionally, I take this week each year to say “thanks” for all the little things I take for granted all year long–things like hazelnut creamer, gel pens, e-mail and curling irons.
