Happy Thanksgiving

I almost considered not posting this, for fear it would sound forced or obligatory, like some of the daily gratitude posts on Facebook. In fact, I loved this quote

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving."

W.T. Purkiser

I am so grateful for the people I've met in the last year.  Even in the last six months, some remarkable people have entered my life, made me better, helped me cope, and loved me. 

I am so thankful for those people, and I hope you all feel sufficiently used by me for the aforementioned purposes. 

Happy Thanksgiving.  Thank you for your love!


  1. Agreed agreed 100%. I wanted to write a gratitude post and it was going to be about all of you. I'm grateful for you as well. Love you!

  2. Haha, I agree with you about the Facebook thing. I thought "why are we just doing this in November?" it's like... "oh ya, time to be grateful".. but I thought that sounded crabby so I just don't say anything. I'm also grateful for my new online family community. I wish I'd known about it sooner. But I'm grateful it didn't end up being later:-)

  3. I love the quote you shared, but I totally love you more. I think about you everyday & keep meaning to call. I'll give ya a holler later today. You are a true gem in the way of friends as well as a person I keep gleaning insight & knowledge from. Love ya!
