I submit this unconventional Thanksgiving image in the spirit of hope, adventure and fun. I have definitely been a lucky person in so many ways, and I'm thankful and grateful. I'm celebrating the holiday with great friends, and that's pretty nice.
On a personal note, this Thanksgiving I'm extremely thankful for two new things in my life.
First, my fall in Cuba. I didn't really talk about it here, but I had a fall and got hurt while in Cuba. After a few months, I could barely walk. This led me through a path where I eventually ended up in physical therapy. And from where I was, to the healthiest body I have had in probably two decades. Not only did I deal with my hip, the main problem from the fall, but a torn rotator cuff, as well as daily back pain I have had since I was 16 years old. To say it has been a personal miracle is not an overstatement.
And secondly, for the new friends I have made this year. You know who you are.
Hoping all of you are having a wonderful holiday!
