Celebrate The Small Things:Thanksgiving

It being Thanksgiving in the U.S., I'm posting this a day early.

First, I'm grateful for this very blog-hop and Lexa Cain for maintaining it. You guys have been encouraging, especially during the weeks when I haven't been doing well.

Second, I love the internet. I can talk to people from around the world on everything from theology to movies to racism to writing or I can find resources on subjects I never would have known about otherwise. It is just plain amazing.

Now for the stuff that's specific to this week.

  • My brother has recently realized he's asexual. So far, our other family members have been ok with it.
  • I've been following the #4thPrecinctShutdown protest in Minneapolis, and so far, no one has been killed despite being shot at.
  • For the first time in a while, I went to my local library and used bookstore. I was looking for craft books, and I found plenty.

Have a good weekend and a happy Thanksgiving.

Oy, the internet is something definitely worth being thankful for, just in keeping in touch with family all over the world and making new friends who I would otherwise never have met. Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!!

@ Tanya Miranda
Yes to everything you just said.

Glad you found helpful things on the internet. Hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving and have a nice weekend.

Suzanne Furness said...

It is sometimes hard to remember how things were before the internet! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

Lexa Cain said...

Like you, I'm so grateful for the internet for the things it teaches me and the people I can connect with. I'm so glad you found things you wanted at the Library and used bookstore - those were my favorite hang-outs as a kid! It's good your family is accepting your brother no matter what his orientation is. Have a great weekend! :)

The internet has changed so many things, but the best is the ability to keep closer connections. Hope your Thanksgiving went well!

@ Deanie and Suzanne

@ Lexa

So glad your family is understanding of your brother. Telling family members can be one of the hardest things and having a supportive family makes everything that much easier.

M.R. R. said...

@ Kate
That's what I've been getting. He's happy that he realized what was going on with him.

I've been following an internet chat about the downside of Facebook etc, but I wouldn't be without it. As for your brother's revelation, it's nobody's business but his. Good wishes to him.
