Yes, you.

Even you back there in the back, reading this post on your phone while juggling a million other things in life.

You see, even though I’ve never met you before, I feel a connection to every reader I touch with my stories. Your time, your thoughts, and your support enable me to keep doing the thing I love most in the world every day.

I never thought I would be able to write stories and touch people’s lives all over the world.

Yet here I am, and here you are — two souls meeting for a fleeting moment in our journey across the cosmos. Today more than ever, there is an endless number of things you could be doing with your time.

But you chose to spend a minute or two of your day with me, and for that I am grateful.

If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, I wish you some of the best, happiest days ahead. Whether you’re spending time with family or doing your own thing, I hope that you take a moment to reflect on everything you’ve done this year.

You’ve come so far, and that’s worthy of applause.

I know you’ve got to get back to cooking or wrangling the children or whatever else it is that you’re doing this Thanksgiving, but I wanted to leave this short message to tell you thanks.

Thanks for being here.
