Feeling Grateful - Oaks and Lower Cathedral Rock, Yosemite NP, CA, USA

Oaks and Lower Cathedral Rock, Yosemite

As our Thanksgiving holiday approaches, Claudia and I have been reflecting on all the things we have to thankful for. It’s easy to feel gratitude for the big things in life, like your health, wealth and general happiness. But in the wake of recent fires and hurricanes, Claudia and I find ourselves feeling grateful for all the little things that we often take for granted – especially our home, with running water, electricity, wood for our stove to keep us warm, a safe place to welcome family and friends.

We’re grateful that our son is happy and healthy. We’re grateful for each other. I’m so lucky to have had such a wonderful partner for over 30 years!

And I am always so grateful for you, my readers. Your support, comments, and emails make writing this blog fun. Thank you!

Whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving, Claudia and I hope you all have a lot to be thankful for!

— Michael and Claudia
