I am forever grateful to be living the life I live...
I am rather healthy and so are my dear ones
My children are kind and smart and funny and I am grateful for many happy years I have spent with my husband
I have wonderful friends that have become my family and support system far away from my actual family
My job let's me utilize my talents and education and my boss is understanding and flexible
I laugh often and easily and don't consider anybody my enemy
I live relatively comfortable and sheltered life in a country which makes big dreams possible
I could look at my life quite differently...
I have had my share of the sadness, sorrow and misfortune
I have known abuse and lived in poverty
I have become pregnant very young and struggled working minimum wage jobs
Both my children had some serious issues at some point and my marriage has been rocky at times
I have once been diagnosed with life threatening illness
But I choose to think I am incredibly lucky and should count my blessings twice
I am incredibly grateful to my parents and ancestors, for the combination of genetic makeup and upbringing that made me an eternal optimist, a dreamer and a believer in the best that is still to come
This a greatest gift I ever received and I hope I can pass it on to my children
This is not my actual Thanksgiving outfit since I am writing this post ahead of time, but I love orange and green around this time of year.
I am wearing almost all J.Crew: cashmere shawl popover in heather agate, Surf tweed charter skirt, Nottingham boots in Pony Brown, herringbone tights and garden floral wool scarf.
The green pumps are by Jeffrey Campbell.
I will be spending the Thanksgiving with my friends in their house and again, I am very grateful for being invited and therefore having it easy this year.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE CELEBRATING!!!
