I hope you all have a great day, no matter where you are; and, for those of you in the United States, have a great Thanksgiving! Please remember the poor without food, shelter, some even without clothes! Please be thankful for something because we all have something to be thankful for!
At this time, I want to post a shout out and thank you to all my followers - friends online and offline! I wish to thank my family and friends (of the human and non-human variety!) for dealing with my foibles, for being there through thick and thin - those that have. Thank you for everything! I could not survive this world without your love and care! Please know you're always in my thoughts, and I thank you - even if my ability to show gratitude is lacking.
I am thankful that I have a car, a home, food, clothing, a job, ability to go to school and gain a degree. I am thankful for those helpful lessons in life - even the ones that I don't understand right now. As silly as it may sound, that's just how feel right now. I hope I'll understand those lessons soon enough. (Though, I still fear being the cosmic joke.)
Thank you to the gods and goddesses who I believe in, even though I have my rants and periods of utter disrespect and hatred. Thank you for sticking by me. Thank you to those spirits who are my friends and family on the otherside, in the Otherworld. Thank you to my akhu of my mind, body and spirit (soul). Thank you for not leaving me, believing in me, and for loving me. Thank you is not enough, but I don't know what else I can do, except live as best a life as I can. I try to do that. Sometimes I make it, sometimes (and probably more often) I fail.
Thank you. I am grateful.
May all wrongs be righted soon enough.Happy Thanksgiving.
