That’s right, today I am thankful for you. Yes, you. If you are reading this blog for the first time or for the 352nd I am so thankful for you. This little idea that I had while trying to fall asleep one night in New Jersey has been the biggest blessing I’ve experienced in longer than I can remember, and it’s all because of your support. You were there to comment on my posts, encourage me to keep going, and give me ideas when my inspiration well was running dry. Even though I love writing I would be lying if I said I didn’t care if anyone read my posts. Luckily I have you to make sure that wasn’t the case. Thank you. I have no bigger words to express the gratitude I feel, but I have a feeling you know exactly what you mean to me.
I thought long and hard about the charities that I would write about today. Here’s what I decided. There is no one or two charities that could even come close to represent the diversity of reader support I’ve had over the past year. So I’m not going to write about any charities today. I’ve rambled on for the past year about one charity after another. Hopefully you’ve learned a little something and been touched by at least one of them. I know that both of those have happened to me everyday. I’m pretty sure there are very few activities that you can do where you can learn and be moved every single day. The real question is, now what? Now that I’ve poured my heart and soul out to you, where do we go from here? Yea I said we because I’m not on this journey alone anymore. Do we make this a book or a movie? In my dreams! But I really would value your opinion on what becomes of Thanks-4-Giving. So don’t be shy!
So here’s to you! Scott, Beth, Chris, Jane, Clay, Melanie, Kristina, Justin, Karen, David, Rachael, Kim, Richard, Eve, Al, Jean, Becky, Rico, Keri, Terry, Debra, Tim, Nancy, Richard, Lindsay, Paula, John, Jessie, Johnny, Logan, Connie, Matt, Garrett, Rachael, Luke, Kathy, Katy, Annie, Jimbo, Jonathan, Adam, Jen, Danica, Britten, Julia, James, Kellie, Jackie, Stephanie, Jessalyn, Tina, Debi, Amy, Jennifer, Jessica, Meredith, Whitney, Jodi, Devon, Abby, Ashley, and the million other people that I’m missing. Thanks for being you, and supporting me.
