This morning I took a look at my list of friends, family and acquaintances and reflected on how grateful I am for each one of you in my life. You will find some of those reflections below.
Read it slowly, with full intent, if you will. I wrote these reflections about you.
I am grateful to you because you’re funny and unassuming. You’re so adaptable and often in good spirits. You’re tender, vulnerable, sophisticated. You love your family dearly.
I’m grateful to you because you’re original, bold, experimental, sensitive and extremely amusing. You are innocent and beautiful and fragile, and smart. You’re so classy and attractive and grounded in spirit and in the strength of your family. I’m grateful to you because you’re intense and don’t give up, because you strive to understand the world we live in. I have so liked it when we have had the chance to share from the heart, learn from each other, listen to each other, spend time together.
I’m grateful for your open heart, your determination to keep living amidst adversities, your depth of character, your intelligence. Many of the things I’ve learned from you have sustained me on the rainy days of this life, and kept me warm and smiling, on the inside, even as a I felt soaked to the skin. Have you any idea how much you have meant to me?
I think about you and admiration is what I feel.
