Happy Thanksgiving from Inspiralized

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you have a safe, happy and beautiful holiday with your loved ones. I’ll be spending it at my parents’ home in New Jersey with Lu and the rest of my family.

I have so much to be grateful and thankful for this year, but this Thanksgiving, I’m most thankful for my grandfather’s health. Around this time last year he found out he had Stage 3 pancreatic cancer. Shortly after, he went into Sloan Kettering hospital in NYC and had a whipple procedure surgery – at 80 years old, it was a scary time for him and our entire family.

Blessedly, he survived and is healthy again! He even went on a cruise at the end of this summer down the Danube River in Europe with my grandmother (at his request!) I couldn’t be more grateful for his health and his miracle recovery. He’s a true fighter, and I’m so thankful for his strength.

Happy Thanksgiving and be sure to tell someone today that you’re thankful to have them in your life!
