It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.; a time that reminds me to appreciate my world.

I appreciate you, my colleagues and friends, for supporting me and challenging me. I appreciate my fellow Scrum Masters (of whatever gender) in Boulder for playing along in Open Space with me. I appreciate my family for their love and encouragement. I appreciate my sisters of the moon and the wheel for keeping me focused on what's important.

I am grateful to this planet for its beauty. After several sunny days in Portland, today the clouds have rolled in. I am grateful for the rain that keeps my corner of the world green and lush. I am grateful to the other beings that share the planet with me, the two-leggeds, the four-leggeds, the winged ones, the finned ones, the six- and eight-leggeds, and the ones who put their roots deeply into the ground. Together they provide bright variety, nourishment, and bounteous lessons.

I appreciate you, gentle reader, for coming along on my journey of words. You remind me to notice my thoughts and form them well.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you've reaped a good harvest, whatever the crop you sow.
