This is part of our Voices of Thanksgiving series. You can find all the stories and reflections of gratitude here.
For the language to share my story. For the healing and resilient power of black love. For whole food and clean water that give me life and nourish my body. For the legacies, words, lessons, and imagination of my ancestors who traveled the road before me and whose loving spirit pushes me forward. For red wine and the brilliance that is Shonda Rhimes’ mind. For my family– both blood and chosen. For moments of clarity and transformation, and for endings and new beginnings. For these things–and so much more–I say “thank you.”
