I used to write a weekly Thankful Thursday feature on my writing blog. It got a little out of hand a couple of times and I wrote these crazy-long lists with hundreds of things I was thankful for. And Thanksgiving is kind of the ultimate in Thankful Thursdays, so I will honor it here. Today I am thankful for this beautiful world that constantly shows me kindness. I'm thankful for the opportunity to create things, and to share them in small ways. I'm thankful for the incredible group of humans that allow me to be a part of their lives, and in turn wish to be a piece of mine.



Oh, and I finally got to put my calligraphy to good use. My family and the family friends we shared Thanksgiving with were pretty impressed, and I was thankful to have a place to contribute my little artwork (in a very small, rectangular way).
