Giving thanks


Every year at this time, I find myself thinking about just how lucky I am to do what I do, and to have found such a wonderful community with you all. Thank you for your tips, your comments, your thoughtful contributions and suggestions, and the work you do towards making the world a more joyful place. Because of you, it is.

I hope you’re spending today with good friends and family, sharing good food, good conversation, and gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for championing joy! There is a lot of joy in the world, but sometimes we seem to only see the pain. It’s nice to be reminded that every day there are small things, and grand things that we love and people who love and care for us. Thanks for focusing on what brings us joy, and how lovely the world is. We need more reminders of the simple pleasures and daily joys!

  2. Thanks, Sherry. You’re right, the world is lovely but it can be easy to forget in all the day-to-day shuffle. Thanks for sharing your comments and thoughts!
