I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving (or a wonderful random Thursday in November, for those not in the states).
Thanksgiving is generally a time for family, and they are certainly on my mind and in my heart right now. But since we didn’t travel back east (got to save those plane tickets and vacation days for Christmas), this year’s Thanksgiving is about our incredibly warm and welcoming friends... friends who are becoming like family, even though we only met some of them a few months ago. Thanksgiving dinner today won’t be the same without all the familiar faces, foods, and traditions, but I have a feeling it’s going to be absolutely wonderful anyway, and I’m very thankful that we’ve found such a great life here filled with such amazing people.
I’m also thankful for another group of recently made friends… friends who brighten my mornings, offer great insights, share my struggles, and feel truly connected, even though we’ve never met in person… YOU! Thanks for writing great blogs and reading and commenting on mine. I feel like I’ve barely dipped my toe into the vast author-social-network-of-awesome that is out there, but I’m already in love with what I've seen so far of this community.
And finally, I’m thankful for parentheses and ellipses… apparently I couldn’t have written this post without them.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
