Ciao, amici! This is Thanksgiving week here in the United States, and as you’re reading this, I’m either preparing or lying in bed thinking about everything I have to do. Or maybe I’m finally sleeping, exhausted with all that’s going on.
But I don’t mind at all. My family will all be together for the holiday, and I’m feeling blessed.
I won’t be around much this week (see the above mentioned busyness), but I wanted to provide one last quote and series of links before I take the week off. I’m drawing on one of my favorite authors, Charles Dickens, and his wise words:
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty;
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
I love that quote. And not just for this time of year, but for everyday.
Whether you are in the US and celebrating or in another country, I will be thinking of you. Please know I am grateful for you and wishing you well.
