From Mary Beth: “I answer this every year because I have so much to be grateful for in my life. The fact that I am alive is a miracle and I am thankful for each minute I get to spend. I also do not spend my life worrying about when the last moment will be. To be loved and part of a great family of animals and humans is the best. To have people come see me and want to touch me out of love and respect and not out of pity always makes my day. So I indeed am very thankful. But this year, I want to do something in addition. You may look at me and be filled with joy and wonder that I am grateful for things. Some of you even help support me and I am grateful for that too. But, let’s turn this around. Because I want to know what you are grateful for? And if you are having a hard time right now, I still want to hear from you. Because no matter how tough things are or ever will be, we can choose one small thing to focus on that we are grateful for. So let’s hear from you. Make this donkey proud. Give me a reply. The other animals will be envious! The humans will let me know. Come on now, just one thing you are grateful for right now in this moment. If I can do it, so can you.
