My family sort of celebrates Thanksgiving year-round.
Today in particular we give thanks via an ironic bit of excess consumption, including pie, but year-round we are reminded how fortunate we are to have you, fair reader, taking care of us.
Some of you just read the comic. Maybe you feel like you're not contributing anything, but know this: I feel privileged to have captured a time-slice of your life, and to have been permitted to fill it with stories I want to tell. Whether or not you're shopping, you're a big part of why I make Schlock Mercenary, and why Sandra and my kids are happy to have me doing it. It's not about the money. I mean, it's nice to HAVE money, obviously, but I had more when I worked in the software industry and today, like every day, I am thankful that I do not have to go back there.
Thank you for that.
I hope this day brings you the opportunity to express gratitude to somebody. Spread that thankfulness around. It's a good thing. Better, even, than pie.
