Giving Thanks

Last night, our church held it's Thanksgiving service. It was done on Tuesday as Wednesday will be a day of travel and preparation for so many people.

It was a brief service made nicer by the fact that Olivia was serving as Acolyte. She was just so cute it would break your heart.

Pastor Ken gave a brief sermon about thankfulness and reminded all of us to consider the important people in your our lives, especially those people that had touched our lives in some way. Ken suggested that now might be a good time to get in touch with those people... especially if you haven't been in touch with them of late.

So, when I leave the office today, I'm going to buy a few packs of Thank You cards, and start letting people know that I appreciate their influence in my life. Before I do that, allow me to start here.

I am thankful for my chums in the blogosphere. Contact with often-faceless people that you have never met, and may never meet, face to face, may seem superficial to many people, but it isn't to me.

I am thankful for the transfer of information and the moral and spiritual support that I have received from so many of you. I am thankful for the laughter that we have shared. I am thankful for the nice email that you have sent to me. I am thankful for your teaching me how to code. I am thankful for your inspiration. My friends, I have enjoyed, and hope to continue enjoying, our association.

Happy Thanksgiving!

And thank YOU for coming by my blog.

What a great idea to send thank-you notes to people at Thanksgiving...our society is so spread out these days that a little "I'm thinking of you" reminder is a really nice gesture.

I'm just going to take a little look around your blog now if I may :-)

Welcome, Trish!

Canucks are particularly welcome, in my book.

Feel free to wander around a bit, and feel free to visit as often as you like.

I am thankful for my friends in the blogosphere, too! I never could have anticipated how much I've enjoyed getting to know people through their blogs. It's been an amazing experience.

Have a great holiday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog gunfighter, I've been out of action for a while - but I'm still drifting around.

Nice to "meet" a blogger that's close by.

Have a happy Thanksgiving
