I think it’s about the coolest thing I’ve ever heard that we have a national day of thanksgiving. I also think it’s about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen that visual aids have advanced enough that I can now read all of these blogs and write my own. I’m grateful for all the random readers who’ve left comments or liked my posts. I’m grateful that I can then go and read their blogs and comment, or respond to their comments here, and have dialogues with people all around the country. It’s amazing to me, and such a gift. And I’m grateful for all the people who read my blog because they know me and love me, and who patiently read through all the posts because they know how much fun I have writing them. Thanks to all of you. You’re the best things in my life.
I can’t think of a better way to illustrate how this holiday brings people together and to show what I’m grateful for right now than to link to the blog that got me thinking I could write a blog. It’s written by an Australian who lives in California, who presumably did not grow up fighting about who got to wear the Indian (sorry, Native American) costume and who had to be a Pilgrim. Still, he takes the day to say thank you and to tell us what an awesome country we have. How would I ever have even known he said that without all these blogs we keep? Check him out, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
