I am thankful for all of you, my friends on Medium.

Maybe I don’t say it enough. Maybe the days pass and the months turn into years. Maybe we never actually meet in person, and it could be better that way.

I am thankful for my friends on Medium. Every day you offer a place of hope, a shelter from the turmoil, and a welcoming environment.

You encourage me and others to keep writing, to get better, to show up every day and contribute something meaningful. It’s not easy to find a place like this any more.

I appreciate you, even though I may not tell you directly or personally. When you take time to read or give a comment, know that it is welcomed. Understand that every little bit matters in this day and age.

I care for you. When some of my favorite Medium writers went away, it was difficult. I cared for them and still do, hoping that one day they might return. It’s funny how their inspiration still lingers, the thought of them like a warm shadow that never leaves.

I am thankful for the days ahead, whatever their number. Let the world change all around me, so long as I have an opportunity to write about it. Tough times are on the horizon, but we are going to support each other through thick and thin.

We will come together and strengthen one another. We will encourage each other in the dark days and wildly celebrate the milestones. Moving onward, step by step and day by day, we will have gratitude in our hearts and determination in our souls.
