Thoughts on being thankful and counting our blessings

Every year when November rolls around I try to think of new things to be thankful for. New blessings that have come into my life ... or in the case of this year, an old blessing that keeps giving me more and more to be thankful for.

When I asked Dylan what he was thankful for this year, his answers reminded me of how truly blessed I am to have him as my son.

Dylan is thankful for ...

  • All the conservation work I have been able to do, like raising money for the tigers and watching Tiger Trail being built at the Safari Park.
  • For all the people and sponsors that made Dylan's Animal Adventure Camp possible so that I could raise money for the Amur leopards and Snow leopards.
  • For getting Tiga as my birthday present and knowing she was a rescue. She is the best pet ever.
  • Having the privilege to be in the Presidents Association at the San Diego Zoo.
  • My home and my health.
  • That my mom took me on a Deluxe Caravan Safari so that I could see Nola.
  • For the support and encouragement I get from my friends who work at the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

This year I am especially thankful for my son ... Life with Dylan really is inspiring.
