I received a present in the mail today from another Anarchette, who lives in Australia, that has me overwhelmed with gratitude. A fitting emotion here on Thanksgiving Eve. It was an absolutely gorgeously beautiful quilt with sailboats and seashells and a backing the color of the ocean. The best part is the personalized label on the back. It's like a screen shot of how many users are reading a particular topic and it says:
"...mainsheetgirl - we know the label is in a funny place but we wanted to be as close to your heart as you are to ours...
(followed by the modified version of Footprints In The Sand)
A squillion User(s)
All the members, lots of guests, the usual
(followed by a list of the screen names of at least 100 Anarchists, some of of whom I have met and love and others whose paths I have yet to cross.)..."
I burst into tears of gratitude and am so very moved by this gift. I cherish it. It's a reminder of all that I have to be thankful for, despite the cancer: the wonderful family I have found on SA.
Thank you. So much. So very much.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Count your blessings, be thankful for what you have and make it nice.
