gratitude is the least articulate of emotions
“Gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep.” - Felix Frankfurter
Inevitably, tonight, at the dinner table, everyone gets asked what it is that they are grateful for. And honestly, what am I not thankful for? I’m one of those lucky people who lives an incredible life and knows that it’s happening. I hope my gratitude runs deep, not just on Thanksgiving, but every day of the year.
I am thankful today for my family. It’s getting more and more rare that we are all in the same place at the same time, and this week, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
I’m thankful, of course, for some incredible friends. For roommates, and Creekers, and the 107, and the hundreds of people who have changed my life in my 25 years.
I am oh-so-thankful for my health, and ability to push the limits of what my body can do.
I am thankful for work I find meaningful.
I am thankful for Tech football.
I am thankful to live in a city with perfect weather 8 months out of the year.
I’m thankful for a life that balances serious and silly.
I’m thankful for the places I go, and the things I learn from each place I travel.
And I’m oh-so-thankful for the people that I meet (even the crazy ones) and the perspectives they offer.
Happy Thanksgiving, to you and yours. I hope your gratitude is deeper than you can measure in words.
