This month I’m featuring posts as a part of #reverb10, an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next.
December 14 – Appreciate What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it? (Author: Victoria Klein)
I appreciate our good fortune — to be together; to have a warm, safe home; to have (relative) job security; to have the means to ensure our children’s education. I’ve learned this past year how touched so many are by the difficult times of the day — families separated by military service, jobs lost, homes lost. I’m proud of the hard work my husband and I have done to get to this place in our lives, but I am also not foolish enough to deny that so many others have worked just as hard to watch it all slip through their fingers. I suppose I don’t do enough to express my gratitude. All I can do is give back when I can, be sure my children understand the privileges they have and raise good citizens of the world.
