What is there to be thankful for?

I’m back from my 3-month long hiatus. Truth is, I wasn’t on a hiatus for any particular reason – I’ve just been busy! But now back to my post… What is there to be thankful for? A silly question, really. A lot. There’s a lot to be thankful for. I have an amazing family, a…
