Thanksgiving Day

If you’re reading this post “live” on Thanksgiving Day, thank you!  Thanks to all my faithful readers, here and on Twitter and on Google+ and elsewhere, for reading and commenting and joining in the conversation about what it means to be – and become and build – a joyful learning community, and to build meaningful things together.

I’m truly thankful and grateful for

  • my students, the “Latin Family,” who embrace and challenge the crazy idea of building something world-class together;
  • my colleagues, even Ms. X and Mr. Y, for their support, their challenges, and the times we laugh, cry, and fuss together;
  • the amazing PLN that has grown up around our shared conversation, a joyful learning community in itself;
  • friends old and new, near and far, virtual and face-to-face;
  • so many physical, material, and spiritual blessings that I can’t even begin to count;
  • Jasper the Wonder Dog and his “sister” the cat; and
  • my family, who mean more than everything to me.

Whether you celebrate a day of Thanksgiving or not – and whether or not you’re clear on who you’re grateful to on such a day – I hope you all take regular time, space, and energy to be grateful for what you do have.  Embrace the joy and wonder of life, the bitter along with the sweet.  Wishing you joy, learning, community, and meaning today and always!
