It’s that time of year when we start to get a little nostalgic. It’s when we begin to remember the past year and all the things that came with it. It’s that time of year when we become thankful more so than other times of the year.
We talked about being thankful with our preschoolers the other day. We went around the circle and everyone had a turn to say what they were thankful for. Seeing how I am in five classes over the course of the week, I made sure to be thankful for something different every time. One of the times, I said I was thankful for my friends and that got me thinking.
Friends. I am a very lucky lady because I have lots of friends. But, what I have been thinking about the last few days are the different kinds of friends I have. The friends that I know in person and the ones that I don’t.
In March of 2009, I was lucky enough to find the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. We are so lucky to live in this particular time of the internet. Without it, I never would have found this amazing place of friendship and support. Back in 2009, this was a pretty small community, but a great one none the less. I have been here to watch it grow and prosper and help so many people who are all on the very same journey. We are all looking for health and fitness and this is the place that supports us all.
Amazingly enough, in December of 2010 I was asked to became one of the contributing writers here at Shrinking Jeans. My first post was in January of 2011. It was a dream come true. I have loved every minute so far and I look forward to the future at Shrinking Jeans.
I do find it amazing that I feel so close to so many of you. Most of you, I only know from right here on this website. A small few of you I have been lucky enough to meet in person. But, everyone of you means so much to me. You have been such a wonderful support for these years and I can never thank you enough. I only hope that in some small way, I have helped some of you.
On this Thanksgiving day as I gather with my family to give thanks, I am thankful for my other family here at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I am a very lucky girl to have found this very special slice of the worldwide web and for this, I am truly thankful!
