Booking Through Thursday
From Booking Through Thursday:
So–just for today–how about sharing 7 things that you’re thankful for?
I have so many things to be thankful for! Here goes:
- My family, and
- How they always believe in me
- My fiance, and
- How he always knows just what I need to make me feel better when I’m down
- The Internet, where you can make friends, find a job, and be a published author just by hitting a button in some blogging software

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
