I am thankful for:

My faith

My family and friends who are both honest and loving thus insuring I can fix what is wrong, learn to be better and strive for my best

My abilities, those things I do well

My mistakes which allow me to be humble and to see the challenges in others

Being entrusted with Skate IA so that I could contribute to the skating community, the larger skating community

Knowing who I am, including the down side. It’s good to know who you are because then you can work with it

Knowing immediately when I’ve made a mistake.  At 50 I am quicker to acknowledge it and apologize. I really like that. Someday soon I won’t make the mistake….

Having everything I need and most of the time knowing it. Which sometimes requires understanding the difference between need and want.

The clarity that it is about spending time in the company of others, like skating at a public rink session and not knowing anyone, that matters. It’s the company we keep.

We need more skaters to skate with, what can you do?


  1. Good for you Trish! I too focus on what I am blessed to have more than what I want. What I want keeps me driven but what I have keeps me happy. The fact that we can walk, talk, see, hear, feel, taste, and love are things to be grateful for. And being able to skate is just icing on the cake! 🙂
