My blood sisters. Without your love and help I wouldn't be where I am today. Love you bunches.

My Spirit and Kindred Sisters. I have never felt so much love and support from people I have never met in person. I love you all!

My Gothic and Dark blogger friends. You have been here from the beginning and continue to amaze me with your delightfully dark  blogs.

All of the wonderful people in blog-land. You giver me something to look forward to everyday with you fabulous blogs.

My home. For she keeps my family warm and dry.

My car. Betty keeps on going though she is getting older.

My job. Without it I would not be able to support my family.

The Fates. For without the obstacles they throw at me I would not learn to grow.

The Goddess. For without Her I would still be lost.

For Life. I will cherish for the time I have left on this beautiful Earth.

  23. Lovely post, Vivienne! We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but I'm truly thankful for my wonderful family, my adorable cat, and my friends. I'm also thankful for the internet... it's not perfect, but it has enabled me to "meet" some of the most extraordinarily delightful people, like yourself, over the last six months. I feel like we have all formed the most amazing and supportive tribe!!

    Oh yeah, and you know I love that you call your car, Betty! Haha.

  24. hi Little Gothic Horrors

    Thank you. those are great things to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing.

    I call my car Betty because I have a large Betty Boop[ decal on the back wind how. That's how everyone knows it's my car! I'm a huge Betty fan.

  25. I'm thankful for my health. I know many people have it rough yet I'd find myself complaining if I have a simple flu. :\

  26. Hi Real Queen of Horror

    Health is a wonderful thing to be thankful for. i think most of us complain when were sick. i always feel bad for it afterward.
