30 Days of Thanks: Day 2


I am grateful for my good childhood

I had the stability and discipline to feel safe, I had the luxury of parents who stayed married and in a partnership in raising us kids, and I had the blessing of several good and loving friends. It built a solid castle of positivity around me, and even though I had the usual childhood tantrums and doldrums, in retrospect I had an amazing (and rare) childhood. 

I would not be the person I am today without the joy all those family members, neighbors, friends, teachers, and even rivals, and I am grateful for every single moment of it all.
