- I’m thankful for experience and a skill set useful to real people with financial problems.
- I’m thankful for bankruptcy laws, flawed as they are, that allow people to escape debt and focus on the future.
- I’m thankful for the right to vote for people who might make the laws better and the system more balanced.
- I’m thankful for an honest judiciary that gives the system integrity.
On a less lofty note, I’m thankful for computers and the internet, which make it possible to represent individuals without carbon paper, adding machines, trips to the clerk’s office, and stacks of books in a library.
I’m thankful as a woman to live in a time and place where my gender isn’t a bar to education and professional contribution.
And, at every level of my being, I’m thankful for a wonderful set of bankruptcy lawyers I count as friends and partners, who share generously and stretch my thinking.
