Thanksgiving is my family’s signature holiday. We like to appreciate. This year I appreciate my family – soothes my soul, entertains me, keeps me honest. I appreciate my layoff – affirming my passion for the e-Patient, opening new vistas and sandboxes for me to play in. I appreciate my music – soothes my soul, humbles me, reminds my that my Swiss Cheese (MS) brain can still learn. I appreciate my growing network-inspires me and encourages me. Oh my, I hear a theme – soothing the soul, learning, humility, inspiration, fun. For this I give thanks.
