Principle #5 – See your loved ones bigger than they see themselves
We are home from our trip to Africa. We saw so many incredible animals and birds, and the country was absolutely beautiful. Our flights home was unremarkable, exactly how I like my international trips. It’s fun to travel, but there’s something about going home. And I’m talking about our condo. We haven’t been in our condo for two years because we were traveling around the United States in Athena. It was a fantastic homecoming. I’m grateful!
Thanksgiving is this Thursday; Dana and I are flying to North Carolina on Monday to spend the holiday with our family. I’m thankful I can spend time with my family when so many people cannot.
We live in a divided country, yet we have much to be thankful for. The American voters chose democracy over autocracy. We can always choose hope to unite for a better future in the United States. After all, it is easy to see the results of tyranny – Putin’s war.
Our Ukrainian friends have been affected by Putin’s autocracy. Women and children have left their husbands, brothers, and sons, not to mention their homes, because of war. So hold your loved ones close and be thankful for living in a democratic country.
If you can help support our Ukrainian heroes, the information is at the bottom of the email. Please share their story with your loved ones. Thank you for your love and support and for being part of my trusted circle of love. I’m so thankful for you all! Be positive and stay safe. Happy Thanksgiving!
Cindy and Dana
