You may not realize the contributions you make to my life, but you’ve touched me. I appreciate you for one or more of the reasons listed below:

Thank you for

  • Civilly disagreeing with me as you help me to better understand your perspective
  • Sharing your diverse beliefs—spiritual and cultural—that allow me to see the humanity in everyone.
  • Asking questions that invite me to further explore my beliefs and opinions
  • Rankling me as it makes me aware of what I need to work on in my own life
  • Trusting me with your stories and your vulnerabilities as I honor your experience
  • Unconditionally loving me as you hold me up when I’ve beaten myself down

Happy Thanksgiving.
