How come Canadian Thanksgiving doesn't mean anything??

Maybe it's because of how I was raised, and that Canadian Thanksgiving isn't really a big to do, but it just seems that it's not really valued. Like, people don't go out of their way to say "I'm thankful for <x thing/people>". And as I get older, I find myself getting more and more emotional about stuff. Nostalgia makes me well up, movies and TV shows with particularly poignant or relatable emotion make me well up, a particularly brilliant chord progression in a song makes me well up. Not that I'm a big ol' cry face. I don't actually cry very often. I can probably count on one hand in the last 5 years the number of times I've actually been sobbing.

Angry on the other hand... :p

Anyway, just seeing the journals that everyone's put up -- combined with a particularly emotionally grueling episode of a show I was watching -- just put me in a mindset to be really touched by the genuine shows of emotion, affection, and thanks from some people I'm watching. I don't really know where I'm going with this. I just have some raw emotion sloshing around in me that needs an outlet, I guess.

I suppose, even though it's not the holiday here in Canada, that I want to give thanks to you guys for restoring a little of my faith in humanity by humbly acknowledging the people that you just can't function without. It really touched me in a special and unexpectedly emotionally vulnerable place tonight.

I just had to get that out there.

Take care, everyone.

Flynn, I'm thankful every day for everything I have, for all my friends.  It's a great thing to have a day to show that thankfulness, it's really too bad it isn't as acknowledged here as it is in the us.
