Waking up on Christmas morning, I couldn't help but think how fortunate I am. It's been an incredible year for me. So many things have happened to enrich my life. I woke up feeling grateful about the gifts I've been given. And I don't mean things. I mean people, mostly.
I've made a lot of new friends this year. Lots of wonderful, kind, sharing friends; some through art, some through work. I've tried to show my gratitude to them throughout the year and not just on Christmas.
But it's the people who make Christmas last in your heart long after everyone has gone home. And for them, I am eternally grateful and planning to show it to them all year long.
