Thanks and Giving

I can read articles and blogposts very early in the morning, which I am wont to do. I can pitch them as retweets on Twitter or shared posts on Facebook, and  maybe throw a little comment or question in there. Then, do you know what happens? 

I can sit back and watch the growing, changing, idea-inspiring stream of comments, rants, supports, challenges and new ideas that come, always, from my friends and family. 

In this season, I am very thankful that I live in a country where I can express myself in writing for all the world to see.

I am thankful for smart friends and supportive family members who have marvelous ideas. 

I am thankful that those very same friends and family will call me on the carpet when I write crap, or when my logic is faulty. 

I am thankful that even when we disagree, sometimes vehemently and fundamentally, we still remain friends and keep the dialogue open.

I am thankful that I learn something new every single day. 

There. 

That’s all the sentimentality you get from me today.

Yeah, right. You know me too well. 

Happy Thanksgiving season, my friends. I love and appreciate you all.

 

I originally posted this on Facebook today, but I wanted to make sure all of my readers saw it. I mean what I said. I love and appreciate the time we give each other, the support, and the time it takes to read, absorb, discuss and challenge each other. Here’s to a great season of thanksgiving and celebration of the year fast coming to a close, and the hope that we all have a wonderful 2014.
