Turkey’s in the oven although no holiday smell quite yet (I like preparing the bird the night before). But the ceremonial cleaning, stuffing and double checking my list of things to do got me thinking about stuff.
You know how sometimes you think of the past, and it is what it is/was. Then I have moments like now. Thinking about my “web” past and how it really has been a big part of my life. Thinking of how much I truly have to be thankful for.
Earlier today Hubby and I had our own exchange of our good life and our blessings and how fortunate we are. But when I sat down at my desk to do a little work, a flood of memories started bubbling up, made sharper by browsing some of my old blog designs & pics (I love Adobe Bridge btw).
Although I briefly considered posting a few old designs/pics etc, I really don’t need them to make my point.
Do you realize how long some of us have known each other? Dana, Faith, Patti… Moosie, Batty (yay for FullMoon Webbies!), Bran, Weiniehead, Jeff, Jann, Froggy, Elise, DanMan, Allen (sorry if I missed anyone, it’s inevitable)… and a tremendous number of FullMoon Graphics visitors who have been with me from the beginning. And most of you are still here! Lori, AnnieBananie, Joe… good grief there are soooo many of you that I am so happy to have met.
- The fab Digital Divas!
- “Diva & Goliath”
- Grey Day
- Kaycee (!)
- The “Hoopty” thang… OH, and of course there was “BlogCon” which probably means more to Batty & Jon than anyone!
Goodness, the list never ends…
I also have a confession to make. I “talk” to some of you more than any other real life friends that I have. Especially now that I’m not physically out in the working world. No more saving lives. My former coworkers were some of my best friends, and oddly enough, now that I don’t see them every day, it’s sad to say that we don’t talk much any more either. Lives change, relationships change. People I’ve known for 20+ yrs that aren’t a big part of my life any longer. :(
This post could go on infinitely. I just want you all to know that I am grateful that I met you. I am thankful for your friendship. I’m glad you’re here. Even when you’re not, I know that you’re out there.
mmm, I’m beginning to smell a little holiday bird…
I wish you all the very very best for your Thanksgiving Day. Whether you celebrate it with loved ones, or don’t at all. I hope you all have just a little bit to be thankful for, even if it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, there has to be some hope, some glimmer of gratefulness in your life. I sure hope so.
