Thanksgiving is the time of year when we are reminded of all the things we are grateful for. This year, I am looking forward to my husband's parents ' Thanksgiving dinner. This is a great time of year to enjoy time with family and friends, and of course, watch the Dallas Cowboys.
Thanksgiving is a relatively new holiday for me. It is the holiday of my adopted home and I look forward to passing on all its family traditions to my children. The United States is a place of improbable stories, of lives that never could have been realized anywhere else in the world. I do not believe that my life as a lawyer amd all the possibilities that have grown from my career would have been possible in any other country.
You cannot choose the country where you are born. But a lucky few have the opportunity to choose the country where they live. When I was growing up, I never imagined that one day I woud be an immigrant. The United States has allowed me to shape my future and to assist many others in shaping theirs. Thank you America for giving me this opportunity.
I am so grateful for all the blessings in my life, including each of you-my family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Reflecting on the year, I can truly say that I enjoy my work, I am passionate about the causes I choose to fight, and I cherish the people I get to work with and for.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives.
