Day 220:  Giving Thanks

Day 220.

I’m feeling overwhelmingly thankful this morning.  I’m thankful for everyone and everything in my life—my family, my friends, Uh-Mazing Romantic Partner, Joie De Vivre, Beautiful Bride, Dear Friend, Screenwriter, Cindy, Screenwriter Monica, Talented Actor Friend, Director Brenda, Amazing Mentors—ALL OF YOU!  I’m thankful for all the new people I’m connecting with on Twitter all across the United States and the globe—Canada to Mexico to Brazil to the UK to Turkey to Jordan to Finland and more.  I’m thankful for all the filmmakers I’ve met recently either in cyber space or in real life who are inspiring and motivating me to keep going with my films because they keep going with theirs.  I’m thankful for everyone who is coming to this site—new and returning visitors growing in numbers.  I’m thankful for everyone who has liked the Facebook page.  I’m thankful for all the Dream Advocates spreading motivation.  I’m thankful for all the businesses who have let us put a Dream Card box in their store.  I’m thankful for all the Dreamers who have Declared their Dreams and mailed them in to motivate themselves and the world.

Unexpected Gift in the Garden

I’m thankful for this community of creators and motivators we are forming.  I’m thankful for the tomatoes growing on the vine in the garden.  I’m thankful for the Sunflowers growing in the garden that we didn’t plant!  I’m thankful for the the squirrels and the birds that must have dropped off the seeds.  I’m thankful my knees feel good and I was able to take an hour walk this morning before it got too hot.  I’m thankful.  Thank you.  You make my life beautiful.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…thanks to give.
