This Thanksgiving season I think it’s especially important for us all to remember what we’re thankful for. I’m going to take the day to enjoy my family, reach out to family that is far away, and reflect on the good in my life.
First, I’m thankful for my health and security. So many people around the world right now are living, working and trying to raise families in difficult situations: oppressive government; war zones; famine and drought stricken areas. I can express myself in anyway I please, disagree with people, criticize my government, walk in my neighborhood without fear, and for all these things I am grateful every day.
Second, I’m thankful to my family for supporting me. Starting a business and being an artist are both difficult prospects. It’s a lot of work, and a lot of different types of work, and without my family to support me, I wouldn’t be able to do it.
Third, I’m thankful to have a way to express myself, and to be supported by my fans. I always love when people buy my products, but when you see someone’s face light up when they see your work, or get that special email of thanks, that’s a feeling money can’t buy.
I hope your day is filled with loved ones and delicious food and relaxation. Happy Thanksgiving!!
