From the very beginning of our journey with Urban Life Wash Park we have made it our goal to introduce you to people who are making a difference in Colorado. Whether it be with their art, music or efforts to help those in need, these people deserve the spotlight. It can be easy to forget about the positive happening in the world without a reminder.
This November and every month following we will continue to keep our eyes open and our minds aware of the fact that we have so much to be grateful for. This is not to say that we won’t continue fighting for those who need us the most, by standing up and speaking out. But for right now, let us take a moment to look at the treasures around us that we so often take for granted.
We are grateful to have a warm home as the weather turns cold. We are grateful that we are able to kiss our kids goodnight before bed and wake them with hugs in the morning. We are grateful to have a fridge full of healthy food to keep our family thriving. We are grateful to live in a community where people still help one another, no questions asked. We are also completely aware of the fact that it is because of our privilege that we can have such luxuries.
So, as we near the end of another year, it is not lost on us that you our readers, friends and family have made this journey so worthwhile.
We wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Your neighbors – Sam & Shaleen DeStefano
