Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

November marks the beginning of the holiday season.  This is a time of the year where we can stop and think about all the things for which we are so thankful.  With Thanksgiving around the corner, many of us have made it a tradition to share what we are thankful for with our family and friends while enjoying a bountiful meal.

We want to know…who are you thankful for?

Win a pair of Bedhead pajamas for you and someone you are most thankful for.  What better way to show your gratitude than with a pair of luxurious pajamas?

    I’m so thankful for my best friend, Ilene. I’ve been through a divorce, ugly sepearation, everything, and she was always there, bailing me out and helping me through my toughest times. She has been my best friend for the last 7 years and i’m so lucky to have found her. She is the best friend i could’ve asked for. She has shared so many laughs, smiles, and cries with me, its amazing. Just thinking about her and how much i love and am thankful for her, puts the absolute biggest smile across my face. Thank you for EVERYTHING Ilene! i love you!

    I’m thankful for my healthy family and friends and another wonderful Thanksgiving in the Pacific Northwest. I’m also thankful for comfy cozy pajamas snuggled up by the fireplace this winter!

    I’d almost given up trying write about how much Alisa means to me. Finally I realized the truth is that some friendships are simply are deeper than words will be able to ever describe. No-one else will ever truly be able to understand or feel the connection that we have. And that’s possibly part of what makes it just so special.

    What is perhaps most remarkable about our friendship is that have never met, and it is entirely likely we never will. We were brought together by a common thread of illness, and it is certainly an enormous comfort to have that mutual understanding of the force that keeps up both close to bedridden. We can discuss our deepest dreams, fears and griefs, hopes and disappointments and know that the other will instinctively ‘get’ where we are coming from without needing any further explanation. But our friendship is in no way defined by our illness and the fact that we have so much in common beyond this is very much part of why I love her so intensely.

    We can talk about anything and everything – from the most meaningful to the most mundane and ridiculous – and always seem to be on the same wavelength. There is nothing that is ‘off limits’, nothing that feels it needs to be censored. We both treasure the people in our lives above all else. We both have ‘champagne taste’ and always have, are highly visual and feed on aesthetics and beauty. We share a deep commitment to ethical and environmental values and to spiritual growth. We are inspired by and love fashion – even from our beds (actually, it was Alisa who introduced me to Bedhead pj’s in my quest for the ultimate pair – an devotee sharing a secret with a new convert). And in spite of all we cannot do, and ache to be able to experience, we both maintain our love of life and all that is good in it. And we stop to express our gratitude – and to remind each other to – regularly. We are blessed in so many ways, and our friendship is one of the most profound and precious.

    I could not be more thankful for Alisa’s presence in my life, she is one of those incredibly rare friends you will find a few times in a lifetime (if you are lucky). I trust her with my heart and soul and I would trust her with my life.
