Today, I'm Thankful

Today I was asked "What do you study?"

I was in a crowd of women who did not know much about women's studies but their answer, after I explained what both studied and was deeply involved in, was: "More men need to study that," brought me back to great place that I have not been back to in a while.

It helped to once again show me how to important it is to build bridges and allies across gender lines and how women's studies creates the change you want to see in the world.

That is what I am most thankful for on Thanksgiving this year.

That little twinge of acknowledgement from the universe that I am "on the right path."

Today, I am thankful.

I have to say, I am a lucky person.

It is about that time of year again when we start getting all mushy and thankful and I cannot help but become "one of them."

I am thankful to my friends and family who amaze and inspire me everyday. Without them, I would not be able to do the things I do.

I know there are horrible events going on in the world right now (when isn't there?) but sometimes we have to stop and reflect that life, in its small glory, can and is great.
