Thanksgiving Every Day

I know - it's been nearly a month since my last update, and everyone (who cares) is still waiting on my update about MileHi Con, not to mention the Storyboards I haven't kept up with since school started...

But you know what? It's okay. No one is gnashing their teeth or pulling at their hair over it, are they? If so, you have my sincerest apologies.

Ultimately, all of this is relevant to today. I could talk about the hypocrisy that is brought out in my country over this "holiday" wherein everyone is thankful, sharing, and giving... followed immediately (sometimes starting at the stroke of midnight) by rampant, sometimes even violent consumerism... but I think it's been said before.

I'm thankful for a lot of things, even if I don't say it all the time. Like the fact that I can hear a hawk outside my window - that's really an amazing thing. Or the people in my life... But, more relevant to this blog is:

I'm thankful that I have such a fulfilling life that writing in this blog has been a STRUGGLE to find/make time to do. I am so caught up in doing things that I love (sometimes that I just "need" to do, but love when that need isn't so great as to sleep deprive me) that this little things (lots of little things) fall a little to the wayside. I think about it, but I'm just doing things so often... I wouldn't be very thankful for it if I weren't engaged in so many other great facets of life...

Loved ones or not, holiday or not (for my international friends) - I'm thankful for you all, all year.
