Haven’t blogged in a while because life has been happening. But it’s Thanksgiving and I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to put life in perspective. I have a lot to be thankful for, not the least of which is this recipe for yams that I made today ūüôā ¬†I love this recipe, both for its simplicity, and for the fact that it’s delicious.

Things to be thankful for: I have a job I believe in, health insurance, my own affordable car and apartment, and two pets who make me smile. ¬†For a while, both of my grandmothers were very sick, and my mom has been having some health issues too, but they all seem to be recovering now. ¬†And hey, I still have a mom and two grandmothers. ¬†Also, my family is cool, and I’m kinda proud to introduce my friends to them. ¬†Life is far from perfect, but I am lucky. ¬†I hope, if you are reading this, you are at least as lucky as me. ¬†And if not, don’t be afraid to ask for help. ¬†One of the things I’ve learned in the last few years is that help is out there if you are willing to ask for it. ¬†Sometimes it’s hard to ask, and sometimes people will let you down, but there are people out there who will help. ¬†I am immensely grateful to the people who have helped me, and I try to repay them, or pay it forward when I can. ¬†Good luck out there.
