Thanksgiving is on Thursday. So here's a poem about all of the people who I thank from the deepest places in my heart:
THANK YOU for…
a comfortable place to sleep when traveling far from
all of the incredible opportunities.
allowing me to learn from you, and make mistakes and learn from them.
always being ready with a meal and glass of fine wine and coffee.
answering the phone at 2 AM.
being the first person I want to call when something incredible happens.
calming my heart.
clearing my vision when it becomes blurred.
converting a misunderstanding into a beautiful collaboration.
finding the most beautiful flowers.
facebook messaging into the wee hours of the morning.
giving me a calm escape on difficult days.
helping me grow into the person I want to be.
highlighting when the ‘boose is loose.
keeping me focused on my nature and making me a better person.
listening to me during my highs and lows.
making the geochemistry happen.
supporting my training, riding, and racing.
reminding me about God and love.
teaching me about the rocks, how to see the important details, and how to write.
encouraging me to have fun, do my best, and remember my way home.
