Dept. of Thanksgiving

Friendship

This year. Oh, this year. What a hell of a year - and we're still more than a month away from escaping it. 

In years like this, it's hard to find a reason to be thankful (and herein entereth the earworm Reasons to be Cheerful, Part  3. You're welcome.)

But I have you; all of you who I interact with regularly or  intermittently, here in our ephemeral but strangely strong online community. Even those with whom I interact rarely now, because they have moved on to other communities, have enriched my life immeasurably. 

You have seen me through hard times. You've hugged me, you've offered help or advice when I asked for it, and refrained from doing so when I didn't ask for it. You've cheered me on when I needed reassurance, you've laughed at my jokes and read my meanderings. 

More importantly, I think, you've offered me the chance to do those things for you. Thank you for that, because friendship can never be one-way. 

Whether your Thanksgiving is a month in the past (hi, fellow Canucks!), down here in the U.S., or in parts of the globe where Thanksgiving is not officially celebrated - may your days, and all the days to come in this year (and in the next as well), be filled with friendship. That's the true meaning of Thanksgiving to me. 
Thank you.
