I don’t have the words to encapsulate the gratitude I feel for my community. For each and every one of the people who touches my life on a regular basis, for those who have come and gone in my life and those who I only get to interact with from time to time. Lately, my mind has been consumed by the topic of community. The community we surround ourselves with greatly impacts, although often unknowingly, our lives. Not only the life we live out today or lived yesterday, but all of the days leading up to today and for the rest of our lives moving forward. For, our community is filled with endless teachers. Regardless of how we feel about any one of the people in our lives, they come to us for a reason. And for that, I’m eternally grateful. This year I’m giving thanks for all of the people in my life. Thank you for pushing me, supporting me, challenging me, calling me out, laughing with me, questioning me, giving me advice, testing my patience, humbling me, taking the time to get to know me, loving me, spending time with me and most of all being my teacher.
