I've been reading scalzi's posts on thankfulness with interest. In many respects, our lives are very, very different, but we also have some strong similarities.
For my part, with brevity, I am thankful for the_child. I am thankful for my readers and the industry that puts my books out to all of you. I am thankful to my family and friends and doctors and nurses and staff who continue to see me through my cancer journey. I am thankful for each day I'm still alive. I am thankful for all the places I've been and things I've seen and done. I am thankful that people want to hear what I have to say, and listen to me. I am thankful for you.
