Giving Thanks

November 24, 2011

The Crew of Convivia has so much to be thankful for. Amongst those:

  1. Our health
  2. Enough wealth that we can afford to be together all the time
  3. Enough love, patience, wisdom that we would want to be together all the time
  4. The realization of a lifelong dream
  5. This wonderful floating home
  6. The support and love of our families and friends
  7. A wonderful, diverse, and supportive cruising community (both near and far)
  8. Thanksgiving in a climate that demands we wear swimwear to dinner


Reflecting on the overwhelming bounty of our life is a daily, or at least weekly occurrence lately, but on this day I observe our good fortune in the context of 36 previous days of Thanksgiving. I have never, on this day, felt anything less than a heart full of gratitude. If a heart full is the yardstick by which such things are measured though, I must surely have grown another heart this year.

So to all of the convergences, coincidences, favors, and fortune that have brought us this bountiful and beautiful existence, we give thanks.
