I am thankful for time and light, even as they rip open or show upon the scabs of our soul from time to time. We accept past imperfection, we atone, we correct our course. For those opportunities we can give thanks. I am thankful for my daughter’s smile. I am thankful that Maddie is by my side. While society holds up a mirror and struggles with who we’ve been, or what we’ve become, try to find just a moment of peace.
