Every year, people around the world celebrate Thanksgiving. For most people born between November 22 to 28, you get to celebrate both Thanksgiving and your birthday approximately once every 7 years based on a calculation by Scott Forbes.
Like Scott, I am also born in late November. November 28 to be exact. So in 2002 and 2013, Thanksgiving falls exactly on my birthday. It will do so again in 2019.
So in the spirit of giving thanks and celebrating my birthday today. I wanted to give thanks to all that matters to me this past year.
To the good
Thanks for picking me up and guiding me through the down moments. For giving me hope and the strength to continue on. For lifting the burden and giving me warmth.
To the bad
Thanks for not causing permanent damage and giving me just enough room to recover. For reminding me never to be complacent and comfortable. For showing me the good through the bad.
To my love
Thanks for standing by me unconditionally and tolerating my whim and fancy. For supporting me through some crazy ideas and silly mistakes. Thanks for your unconditional love and for always being there for me.
To our dear guardians
Thanks for looking over our family and guiding us through happy and sad times. For being the friends and family that we are very grateful for. For not giving up as I waver. For simply giving unconditionally.
In the spirit of giving thanks, I encourage you to do the same this year and say thank you to what matters most to you.
