cats - snow leopard


It can be rough to find things to be thankful for in these troubled times. And yet overall I remain relatively happy and content with my life. I am fortunate in so many ways: my stable marriage to a good and caring person; my healthy kitty who stayed healthy; wonderful friends in my daily life, my online life, and around the world; a job where I do meaningful work and have flexible hours so that I can pursue my other interests; a family that loves and supports me even when they don't always understand me; healthy and financially stable enough that I don't have to expect too much energy worrying about my basic needs.

And of course I have fandom, and every single one of you reading this, even those I don't know that well, even if we've never spoken directly. Fandom has brought so many good things into my life and I can't imagine a world without it. So thanks to you all, from the bottom of my heart. I hope everyone who celebrates is having a good and low-stress Thanksgiving, and a very happy Thursday to all.
