“Thanksgiving is a timely reminder to pause and give thanks for the many beautiful things we have in our lives. I hope your day is full of food, laughter and quality time with those that love you. Happy Thanksgiving.”
I am so thankful for the time I am able to spend with my beautiful family, my husband Jim, and my two boys Tyler and Luke. And I can’t forget our funny doodle Duffy. I am thankful for the ability to navigate through the challenging times of the last two years. I am happy to remember how things used to be with nostalgic feelings, while working towards a bright future with flexibility and curiosity. To me Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for any abundance that you may have in your life, and giving a helping hand to those in need. I love the smell of the turkey dinner with all the fixings. Once a year is enough turkey for me. That is part of what keeps it so special.
I would like to give a special thank you to all of my acupuncture patients. It is truly a joy to be able to help so many different people over all of these 21 years. Every day is different as there are so many different needs and challenges. I am grateful to be able to do what I love, and to share this wonderful medicine with you. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving 2021!
