I often forget to say it, hoping that my daily practice of gratitude captures it all. Yet I know that it doesn’t.

So thank you.

For being here when you could be somewhere else. Somewhere fancier. Somewhere smarter. Somewhere more elegant. Somewhere more hilarious. Somewhere hipper.

Oh yes, I have those thoughts.

And yet, you are here.

Thank you for reading my words.

Thank you for sharing your comments, sharing your dreams, sharing your goals, sharing your gifts.

Thank you for sharing my words with your "likes", "tweets" and "recommends".

Thank you for being patient, receptive, warm and loving as I grow and stretch and retreat and grow some more.

Thank you for asking me for what you need from me (please don’t ever stop…) It means we’re in relationship.

And for that, I am truly grateful.
