I’m sure there’ve been plenty of Thanksgiving posts today about what people are grateful for and blessings and shit like that, and I’m definitely grateful for a lot of things and certainly recognize that my life could be a whole lot fucking worse than it is. I have a lot of conflicting feelings about Thanksgiving, with the whole holiday being based around the beginning of a relationship that ended with the wiping out of an entire culture, and all – but I DO appreciate the sentiment of thankfulness that the holiday now centers around (we are NOTHING if not a nation of denial), and the family time, and, of course, FOUR WHOLE DAYS OFF IN A ROW! WOO HOO!
I could give you a really long list of the things I love and am thankful for… most of them would be pretty predictable, others not so much. And I might give you that list, maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe next month.
But there’s really only one thing I want to say today, and that is this:
WE MISS YOU.
THANKGIVING IS NOT THE SAME WITHOUT YOU.
WE LOVE YOU.
LOVE, ALL OF US.
