happy thanksgiving || life

fall 2008. taken with my holga. 
this is a time to be thankful. 
i am surrounded by good people, good food and good scenery
i am loved
i've got peace and joy in my heart

i know i'm right where i'm supposed to be.

in reality, there's so much to complain about. more often than we'd like life isn't very fair.
we don't get what we want. 
we're hurt
we hurt others
we lose
we're defeated
nothing is exciting
the little life we have left is robbed by darkness

but i know, from the short amount of time i've been alive, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. 
we have to fight to live. life is worth fighting for. 
i want to be bigger than my circumstances
i want to be thankful when nothing makes sense

i am thankful. 
for you. 
for your faithfulness, your love, your loyalty, your goodness. 

happy thanksgiving my friends (even for you non-Canadians)
