giving some thanks

Thu Nov 22, 2012, 8:05 PM
I've spent my Thanksgiving feeling rather ill, starting yesterday evening I've been feeling very dizzy and queasy and headache and weak. I have no idea what it is or why it's here but golly it's a pain! I've spent my Thanksgiving cleaning. I took everything out of all the drawers, out of all the closets, off of all the desks, even out from under my bed. I've been going through everything, deciding what to keep and what gets a new home. But most of all, I've spent my Thanksgiving being thankful.

Thanksgiving really is the most simple and pure holiday of them all. It's incredibly warm and humbling. We are all silly cute little human beings, living here on silly cute little earth, and every single one of us has so much to be thankful for. I find myself saying thank you to so many people every single day, not even on thanksgiving, and this past week I've really realized it, and it's blown me away. Sometimes we forgot how beautiful we are. So Thanksgiving is there to remind us of everything that's EVER been done for us, and, of everything we've ever done for someone else. So now, after your day of thinking about why you're thankful for everyone else, please take a moment to stop thank yourself as well.

And I will, also:
Thank you.

Thank you for caring. Thank you for thinking. Thank you for being curious. Thank you for trying your very best! Thank you for smiling and laughing. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for your KINDNESS. And biggest of all, thank you, for thanking.

I am so very blessed by every single person I meet, whether they know it or not. I learn so much from every single one of you, and I love you all, right now, sincerely, whether we've ever spoken or not, because I know that, just like me, and just like all of us, you are thankful for something, and someone is thankful for you.

Thank you.

I am thankful for you (a day late, sorry...). I really do mean that. Without you I probably wouldn't have drawn anything in the past month and a half, I would have just given up on myself completely. But you popped out of nowhere from a completely innocuous comment and gave me the support and encouragement that I had always so desperately needed yet never really received.

Thank you.

I will not cry, just for you! These holidays... They want us to be dehydrated and puffy.

I will try. It's so hard sometimes though, but I feel like I've given up enough times for any one person, so why not just keep going?
