Even though I'm not American, I am extremely thankful, so I figured I'd steal their holiday to blog about the things in life I'm extremely grateful for. Because I'm incredibly sappy like that, and because I'm officially done with Mass Effect for the night.

♥ I'm thankful for having such supportive, wonderful family, who continue to encourage and humour my obsessions, whims, passions and dreams.
♥ ...That somehow, in the whole wide world of video games, of the thousands of servers that run TF2, I should happen across a custom map called ctf_vikings, and that there would be this guy playing Soldier who would eventually sweep me off my feet and become my world. The odds seem so damned slim, and I don't think I'd ever take him for granted, because of it.
♥ ...and that I've found a circle of friends I truly can rely on, a family chosen, not born into.
♥ I'm grateful that I have a 'talent', as rudimentary and basic it may be, because it means I have something to strive towards and it gives me a feeling of worth and place far better than an average 9-5 job could offer.
♥ Similarly, I am extremely thankful that people seem to enjoy my talents, that I have the power to make people chuckle or laugh with the art I've created. I make people happy by doing something I love to do. It doesn't get much better than that.
♥ That my family, friends and I are, for the most part, healthy and happy, with food in our bellies and roofs over our heads, with access to the internet and money in our pockets to spend on silly things like video games and DVDs.

A Moment of Calm by *reaperfox Sometimes, you just need to take time out and reflect on life, the universe, and sandvich.

Life's pretty good, right now.
