To get the prerequisites out of the way, I'm thankful for my health, my family, and my liberty. :)

However, in the more specific, I am thankful for having a real job again finally, I am thankful for the discipline and perserverance that has allowed me to keep going in the face of depression, economic meltdowns, and various personal crises. I didn't always have those, and I am thankful for the role models who inspired me to find it.

I am thankful for my friends, close and far, old and new, real and virtual. I am thankful for my fans, who continually inspire me to keep working. I am thankful for great artists and fellow cartoonists who inspire me to keep improving. I am thankful that all the effort I've put into improving has shown results!

I am thankful that Dave Allen liked NeverNever so much and wanted to print books of my stuff.

I am thankful for tip jar contributions, auction purchases, and strangely-overpaid commission fees. :) I am thankful for anyone who ever said, "I like your work."

I am thankful for my favorite books, movies, music, cartoons ... I am thankful for the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons. I am thankful for an apartment that is $250 less / mo. than I would have been spending if we hadn't moved.

I am thankful for the companionship, consideration, and kindness that flows naturally from Laurie. :)

I am thankful that my sister is cooking tomorrow. ;) I am thankful for a four-day weekend.

I am thankful that this post is ending here. I am thankful for anyone who doesn't say, "So are we!" ;)
