Today I am thankful for memories. Whether they are good or bad, memories show us what our life has been, who is or has been part of it, and the things that we have done or have been done to us. I’m grateful this year to have made a lot of new, exciting, pleasant memories. Unfortunately, I’ve also had to share in some unpleasant memories as well. But I’m thankful for the memories that are attached to those memories which are the cause of why they are unpleasant. I’m thankful for traditions and the opportunity to create new traditions going forward.
