Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving!

Thu Nov 22, 2012, 12:09 AM


Happy Thanksgiving, Premium Members!

Today is a day for gratitude -- giving thanks for what you have and what you've been given. It's a time for remembrance and enjoying the company of others. And though Thanksgiving is not celebrated everywhere in the world, being thankful is still important to keep in mind. 

:star: We're asking you to tell us what you're thankful for! It could be anything -- the people in your life, the weather, your lunch, or, maybe just that it's Thursday, the best day of the week.

If you need inspiration, check out techgnotic's article about gratitude here

There are no prizes this week, but you could be chosen by a Secret Santa by posting a comment to Holiday HQ with a reason why you love a particular item in the deviantART T-Shirts and Gear shop or the Prints shop!

Emote Turkey by Mirz123Let us know what you're thankful for in the comments below! And Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for having a roof over my head, getting work, my big fluffy golden retriever, my crazy kitty, my family (of course!). All things considered I certainly have a whole lot more to be thankful for than to worry about, and that in and of itself is wonderful. Sure things could be better and I'll keep going for that, but I've definitely have oodles to be thankful for.

Like I said at dinner today:

... I'm just thankful.

I'm thankful we weren't hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and the other extreme weather events happening around the world this year. I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head and food on my table, clothes on my back and gas in my car. I'm thankful that even though I'm no longer in my long term sub position (re: regular paycheck) that I learned as much as I did while I was working. I'm thankful that I even have a job - rare as it is that I'm called in. I'm thankful that my parents are in good health (relatively). I'm thankful I have a sister and that we're as close as we are.

So. Yeah.

I'm Thankful For Just Being Able To Have What I Have, Being Family, Friends, And Whatever I Own.

I've Spent The First 8 Years Of My Life Getting Everything I Ever Wanted And Needed. From Age 9 To My Current Age Of 17 I Have To Constantly Worry About...Well Alot Of Things; Do We Have Food For Anything (Whether It Be Breakfast, Lunch, Or Dinner), Will We Have Electricity, Will We Have Heat/Air, Will We Even Have A Roof Over Our Heads. Times Are Tough So I'm Very Thankful For Everything I Have.

And A Big Thank You To The Food Bank Of Maryland For Providing Us With Thanksgiving Dinner :heart:

I am thankful for my family, my friends, my life, my access to free education, my wonderful FanFiction readers and the :devart: community! My life is a gift, and I feel so blessed with all the positives in my life. And I'm even sort of thankful for the hardships I have faced, am facing, and may face in the future, for I know they will make me stronger as a person. And I am thankful to my God for giving me life! :heart:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE IT!!! And my best wishes to everyone, regardless of whether they celebrate Thanksgiving or not! :heart:

I'm thankful for the doctor that diagnosed my mum's brain injury last month, and my mum's determination. She went two years of not knowing what was wrong with her. People treated her as stupid because the injury and medications she is on drastically effected her previously sharp wit; now she has to think over steps- for things as simple as getting our stove ready so she can cook something- up to three times before she actually does it. She lives off of bran muffins, chow, McDonald's coffee, and plain chicken/turkey/poultry, because the injury and meds ruined her sense of taste. Everything else tastes like laundry soap, burnt wood, salt, or pennies to her. She lives with a injury-based headache that never goes away. The injury has really put a wedge into our family- my mum is not the same person anymore.

That doctor actually fucking cared about what she had to say. He didn't brush her aside or rush her to say what was wrong. He treated her like an actual person after some doctors were complete douchebags to her. Some had the audacity to believe that she was making all of this up.

I don't know the doctor's name, but he gave my mum the one thing she hasn't had in years. He gave her hope.

I am thankful to Michael Faraday for inventing the first electric generator and to Nikola Tesla for making it practical. I am thankful to Joseph Henry and Antonio Meucci for creating telecommunications, and allowing people to communicate overseas. Though this may seem like an odd thing to say, I am thankful to all of the Nazi scientists who gave us modern medical techniques like microsurgery and ultrasonography... Though most people see them as monsters, I see them as dedicated researchers who were willing to do whatever it took to achieve their accomplishments, and that is what it means to be a visionary. Many people wouldn't be alive today if it weren't for their controversial work.

I'm grateful for a lot of things.

I'm grateful that I've wonderful, caring family and friends.
People who encourage me to not give up on something when I've the feeling I've failed in doing something.
That lots of people give me the courage to move on after being through a whole load crap stuff happening to me.

I couldn't wish for better family and friends.
The best things that happened to me this year are:
-Studied some more English (got C1 level.)
-My new job, I love it. It's nice and it is outside nothing better then working outside.
-Been to the Harry Potter studios with my friends. It was gorgeous.
-Many people on dA encouraging me to continue what I love doing.

Thanks you all so much.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Enjoy the precious night with your family, friends with whoever you celebrate it. Enjoy the wonderful moments of this evening.

I'm thankful for the encouragement I receive her on the site, and the people that encourage me, of course. I was really hesitant to post things at first, thinking that I may not be good enough and nobody would like me or my art, but there are people on here that keep me going, and they know who they are. ;) So I just want to say how grateful I am not just for the people that have encouraged me to improve my skills, but also to my 21 watchers and 336 deviations favourited. Thanks guys! Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful that me and my family are doing well in this horrible economy. I'm thankful that everything that's happened over this last year has smoothed over. I'm thankful that everyone in my hometowns okay after Hurricane Sandy. I'm also thankful my cousin wasn't able to go into the army (selfishly of course).

I am thankful for everything I have. Especially this 3 month PM I now have, given to me by my wonderful friend, *Warriorcatgrl. :heart: I am also thankful for dA. It became my life. Before I joined over a year ago, I had heard about it, but I never actually checked it out. (I might just murder this fly right now xD) My best friend, ~GamerKelly101, after I got my tablet for my birthday, suggested I join dA, being an art site, and I did. I LOVE da! I am also thankful for all the wonderful things I have. A good life. An amazing family. Wonderful friends. All of that. Thank you, and happy Thanksgiving! :D

I don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I have a lot to be thankful for, from the big things like my parents and friends to the very small ones like the excellent ice-cream I had for...well, lunch. :shifty: I'm grateful for the good days.

But what is relevant for this post is that I'm also grateful for all the wonderful art I am privileged to find on dA, and all the equally wonderful people and artists I get to interact with.

:iconhappythanksplz: to all who celebrate!

I'm thankful that God is watching over us 24/7. No holidays, no discrimination, no sick days... He is always there. He may not give you what you want, but He provides what you need when you need it. He has blessed us so much in the last 4 yrs. for things we only took for granted before that. I am blessed to have a roof over my head, something to fill my stomach, my hubby who has cancer still with me and doing ok and the list goes on. Thank you, Lord. Thank you friends. Thank you family.

I'm constantly thankful for the support I get from friends and family, the love I get to feel every day, simple little happy things that occur in life and the fact that even though many people, me, the ones close to me, people all over the world, have to sturggle and suffer and face hard times, in the end everything always seems to work out, as long as one stays strong. I'm thankful I get to see so many people survive hard times, I'm thankful I get to see how strong people truly can be and I'm thankful I can sometimes maybe even help someone to be a bit stronger, a bit braver, and become stronger and braver myself.
