A Most Cherished Gift

A Most Cherished Gift

Dear friends, it has become a Thanksgiving tradition for me to share what I am most grateful for. Of course, the usual response, appropriately so, is to express my gratitude for my amazing wife, Lynda; my children and grandchildren; my extended family of four cats, four goats and six chickens, and the numerous friends and supporters I have around the world. 

I also have a deep sense of gratitude for all the people who work in and support our businesses. From the practitioners in our clinic, the customer-support team, and the people who so willingly and ably do our marketing and website, I am grateful for and touched by their dedication, insight and good humor. 

This year, I also want to express my thanks to something akin to my higher self, or maybe my better self, or sometimes I think it's my guardian angel, who has helped me craft a life in which I experience the gift of fighting for truth and justice. I truly believe that if I ever reached a point in which I didn't believe that the words I speak, or the people and causes I support, or even the products and services we offer didn't fundamentally help to create a healthier, more just world, few other things would matter.

The support of my friends and family allows me to carry on, but the real task is simply to help the world be a better place than when I found it. 

Together we can do this. Join me.

What a lovely message of gratitude, Tom. I’m 6 months lat reading it, but then it is never to late to experience heart fullness . I’ve been listening to you for 4 years now. Just when I think I may be losing interest, I listen again, and am filled, thrilled and intrigued by your thoughts, your stories and your originality. By that I mean, you simply do not appear to settle on any assumptions, no matter how new they are. You continue to refine your beliefs and never stop questioning. What a fine human qualities you have. If I have to name the greatest contribution I’ve received from you, there is a tie: 1. How to think, and 2. You never speak poorly of anybody on a personal level while resisting people’s continual efforts to tempt you to speculate on other’s motives. Well, maybe it’s a 3 way tie, 3. You tell the truth.
❤️ Bless you, Suzanne
