This week is all about giving thanks, we give thanks for our family and our friends and for the wonderful blessings that are in our life. Whether you thank God, or just offer up a thank you to the universe for what has been given to you, Thanksgiving is a wonderful celebration and time to reflect on what is good with your life and the world around you. Sometimes we get stuck in the negativity, mired down in the terrible images on the news, we forget what a wonderful and beautiful world we have around us. It might not be BIG, it just might be the fact that you managed to get out of bed this morning and feel good. Just take the time this week to appreciate that. If you would like to share with me, I would love the company. If not, I’m just thankful that you took the time to read this. Much love. – Rach [clearboth]

I’m thankful for my parents, thank you for being there for me, and not being there for me when I needed to figure it out on my own. I’m thankful for all the great teachers I had as a child, especially my English teachers in high school, Mrs. Shexnyder thanks for forcing me to read really bad American Literature and teaching me to understand what I didn’t like about it. Sometimes you’ve got to experience the bad to appreciate the good.

Thank you to my many family members that have supported me and encouraged me over this past year, I have a wonderful family, a girl couldn’t ask for anything better.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who inspired me to write and helped me along the way. Thank you to Zoey Derrick who actually got me out there to do it…and answered all my stupid questions. Thanks to Rachel of Fiktshun for reading it and not bashing it too bad. Thanks to Mandy for dealing with more of my stupid questions and thank you to all the AUTHORS that I read and loved that inspired me start this blogging / writing experiment. Oh and thank you for Daryl Dixon for the great character inspiration.
