Dear Jakey,

All day I have been thinking about what to write today – what specifically or who I am thankful for. And the thing is nothing was sticking out and I wasn’t sure what I would write. And then I realized that in and of itself the fact that nothing was sticking out was something to be thankful for. The routine of days, the nothing particularly exceptional, the real everyday life. And I am thankful for all of it. I am thankful for this morning when I started my day working out with friends. I am thankful for the boxing we did that makes me feel strong. I am thankful for the ability to reschedule breakfast with Briana because the place was closed and have an open enough schedule to do so. I am thankful for the ability to stock up on all kinds of goodies for Thanksgiving dinner. I am thankful for the chance to chitchat with friends at pick up and watch Ethan play with his friends.  Every real life detail that id routine I am grateful for and I am grateful that I have been able to find my way enough to plug through my days and sometimes even enjoy them without guilt. And I thank you for helping me get here.
