If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know how much gratitude and appreciation means to me. I usually do an annual video gratitude list thanking people for their role in my life that year. I’ve recorded my video and you can watch it here.


I’m also expressing my gratitude in words. Here it goes:


1. I’m thankful and grateful for my kids; Amanda, Sarah, and Steven. You are my rock and the reason I got through cancer treatments this year. I love you to infinity and beyond!

2. I’m SO thankful for my BFF Linda. Your support, advocacy, friendship, hours at treatments and more is so so so very much appreciated. I couldn’t have done it without you.

3. Many thanks to Brooklynn for coordinating a food train while I went through treatments. Thanks to everyone who provided a meal (or two) to our family.

4. Thank you Katherine for your friendship, cards/texts, flowers, groceries, prayers and positive thoughts. Also, your leadership with The Conscious Community and sponsoring my first virtual summit this year meant the world to me.

Thank YOU
