Happy Thanksgiving!

DaGoddess @ 04:00

First, let me thank all of you for making this year so special. If not for you, I don’t know how I’d have made it through.

Y’all helped me keep my wits about me when I thought I was losing it. You encouraged me to keep going when I felt like giving up. You hit the tip jar to help keep a roof over our heads or pay bills. You supported my favorite charities. You loved me when I felt unlovable. You know, all the stuff that some take for granted but that I find absolutely remarkable and wonderful beyond belief.

It’s been a crazy year, hasn’t it? I don’t know how we powered through so quickly to get to the end of November, yet here we are. Things aren’t perfect, but they’re so much better.

I’m missing my family today. Absolutely. Little Dude and Mojo especially. But beyond my blood relatives, I’m missing much of my extended family — my friends in San Diego, my friends scattered about the country. All of you. The whole stinkin’ bunch of ya. Still, I can’t feel too terrible when I think of how much love and support I’ve received from everyone. It buoys me through the sad moments and reminds me how much I have to be grateful for.

I hope when you all sit down and count your blessings that you find you have many more than you originally imagined, just like I did. And I hope your Thanksgiving is full of love.

From me and a depressed furball, Happy Thanksgiving!

Now go this and smile.
