Thankfulness: Friends and family;
I know this sounds clique but it’s true, dangit. I’m thankful for my family from afar who continually loves, encourages and supports me. Who planted seeds and let me blossom into who I am today. And i am thankful my PNW family made up of friends, adventure buddies, coworkers, and even past patients. The people who love me, encourage me, support me, and inspire me through their own storms and struggles. Those who lift me up when I’m down, who see me at my worst and yet still see the best in me. Those who cry with me, pray with me, share their stories and struggles with me and continually encourage me to keep going, no matter what. Those who see me for who I am and not my past. Thank you. Every single one of you. I wouldn’t be who I am without you. I walked out of my storm 6 years ago, into a life of adventure, hiking that hard road to the summit and letting my heavy pack down at the top. Things have come full circle and I am forever grateful for what each one of you have done to enhance my life. Much love.
