It's Thanksgiving in the U.S., and while I take a break between shoving the turkey in the oven and peeling potatoes, I want to express my thanks.

To my family, for being there, as a jab in my side when I need one or a rib-crushing hug.

To my job. Thanks. It's nice to have a steady paycheck and a career that fills me up.

To the world. You know why. The mystery and wonder you share is pretty damn special. Even when I'm scared (like in the dark).

To the InterwebTM for brining me in contact with a talented group of writers and artists. Blog high-five.

To that talented group of writers and artitsts...thanks to you, too, for inspiring me to keep at it. Whatever "it" is.

To my brain, imagination, and stubbornness: all for one, and one for all. I'd be drooling in a corner with out you "guys". Sometimes I still am.

So thanks. Those of us in the U.S. don't own thankfullness today, so go get some. Or share some. Or whatever.

Nice post. We all can find something to be thankful for if we open our eyes,and our hearts.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks Laura, Cate. Time for a nap.

Cassandra Buckley said...

Sometimes we just don't deserve to be happy, but we do it anyway, because thats one of the many human conditions.

Happy Thanksgiving Mr. Polson.

Alan W. Davidson said...

Well said. Happy Thanksgiving, Aaron.

Michael Stone said...

I'm a bit late to the party, but Happy Thanksgiving, Aaron. And nice post.

Jameson T. Caine said...

I just awoke from my food coma! Happy Thanksgiving, Aaron.

Aaron Polson said...

Cryptic as always, Buckley.

Alan - thanks. ;)

Michael - Late is fashionable. Cheers.

Jameson - I'm still in the midst of mine (the coma).

Danielle Birch said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Have a great weekend.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Virtual hi-5's back at you. Enjoy the long weekend.

Cassandra Buckley said...

That's what I'm here for.

Fox Lee said...

Hope your turkey day kicked ass : )

Jodi Lee (Morrighan) said...

Hope you had a great day, and overdosed on turkey!

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Danielle.

I will, Jamie, I will.

Natalie - Yeah, the turkey's. Har.

Jodi - Mmmmm...overdose. The funny thing? I never eat much turkey. It's always the other things (stuffing, cranberries, sweet potatoes, etc.) that do me in.

I wish I'd read these on Thanksgiving, because mine align with it almost perfectly. Hope your side-dishes overdose was as pleasant as mine!
