In French Thanksgiving is referred to as “Action de grâce” which translates literally to the action of thanks. It’s a great time of the year to enjoy the company of our family and friends and celebrate the many reasons why we are blessed with love and good fortune. For me, the most important aspect in my life that I’m grateful for are my support systems.
These are the wonderful clusters of people in my life with amazing talents and inspirations that push me to test my limits and most of all keep me grounded. The best thing is that we all have unique support systems depending on our personal journey, interests, and aspirations. The beauty of it all is that we can turn to which ever one, based on the goal/objective we are pursuing.
I’m one of the luckiest people to have a series of awe-inspiring support systems: my family of Team Diabetes, Goodlife, lemons, EDC, my dearest friends(you know who you are 🙂 and of course my roots- my wonderful parents, brother, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles.
A perfect mesh of friends and family that I must continuously support, embrace, encourage and appreciate.
Together, let’s take the challenge to take action and commemorate our extraordinary support systems not only during this holiday but everyday!
