What are YOU Thankful For?
As we get together with family and friends at this time of the year (and at every time of the year), which people do you want to thank for making a meaningful difference in your life? (Why not surprise someone and thank him/her/them publicly right now and right here?) What lessons that came your way turned out to be blessings in disguise? How do you demonstrate your gratitude to the Earth and/or to your Gods/Ancestors for their continuing guidance and blessings?

|John Russell (Cornwall, New York US) ||Age: 46 - Email |
As a practicing professional psychic, and a Solitary, I'm thankful to those who've gone before me in the Struggle so that I might practice my Craft and my Profession without worrying about being burned, crushed, hanged, etc.
I'm thankful to those who've spoken out against religious persecution and prejudice so that we as a society might grow in tolerance and enlightenment.
I'm thankful that we have tremendous opportunities in the years ahead, especially as we approach the New Millinneum in the year 2001, to continue to push for the establishment of tolerance and understanding, especially of Pagan issues and Wiccan concerns.
We have a ways to go, but I'm thankful for the opportunity to make my voice heard along with the voices of my many brothers and sisters in the faith as we continue to speak out for our beliefs and to gain acceptance.
Rev. John Russell, C.T.M., Ct.Psy.
| I Would Like To Give All Thanks To The Goddess, For Keeping... ||Nov 25th. at 6:14:38 pm EST|
|Gwendolyn Wise (Foresthill, California US) ||Age: 30 - Email |
I would like to give all thanks to The Goddess, for keeping my family and I safe last night. After cleaning everything up from our feast and going to bed, I couldn't fall asleep. For 30 minutes I tried, but all I could think was I have to go to the kitchen, I have to go to the kitchen...I gave up and walked in to find the stove top burners were on, turned to high, and ready to ignite the pot holders above them. Never in my life have I recieved a powerful message as I did last night. While never in doubt of my life's path, I was given the gift of the Goddess's complete love and blessings. Her demands for me to return to the kitchen saved our lives. Thank you, O Great Goddess, for the lives of my family, and my own.

|Marilyn L Holmes (Laurens, New York US) ||Age: 54 - Email |
I am thankful for all of those people in my wiccan and Native american community who have taught me and stood by me, in my search for my true identity and belief system without you Pete, Jennifer, Jackie and the study group I would have been alone, and lost in my search.
I am thankful for all my family, both spiritual and mundane.
I wish them all well for the holidays and the new year

|Sia (Santa Clara, California US) ||Age: 42 - Email |
I am thankful that I live in a free country where I can read, think, study and believe what I want. I am thankful for my beloved husband who is my equal in all things and who believes in my dreams. I am thankful that I have always known stong women and good men as my cherished friends. I am thankful that I have a roof over my head, food every day, basic health care and more than one set of clothing to wear, all of which makes me richer than 80% of all the people alive today. Lastly, I am thankful to the feminists, agitators, nature lovers, free thinkers, truth speakers and trouble makers who have gone before. They lived bravely, they questioned authority, they took responsibility for their own choices, they claimed their power, they stood for something, and they knew how to laugh, even in the face of disaster. The people who inspire me lived lives that changed the world for the better. I hope someone can say the same thing of me when I am gone.

|Katri‰n (Mendon, New York US) ||Age: 14 - Email |
I'm thankful for everything I have. I'm luckier than many people- I have two parents who love each other and me too, of course, despite the fact that I am Pagan. My friends have, for the most part, accepted me (religion and all) as well. I'm thankful for the magick of life and living, the Lady and the Lord's true gifts to mankind. Most of all, I'm thankful for life itself.

I am thankful to the Goddess for all the strenght i was given,
for my everydays that's filled with blessings,
for the beautiful flowers that grows with her warmth
for her tender guidance she willingly gave...
i thank her also for the wondeful family and friends
who's been with me for all these trying times
for making me see the beauty before my eyes.
i also thank thee for giving me to you
my new found friend who lightens my evryday burden
who fought the same battle i feel each time
i am in pain, who made me smile from the heart
though, distance might have been so much of a reality
The Goddess made it all possible for us to be free.
So for all that is worth of her every blessings,
I thank you Chris, for the offering of friendship.

|Green Sprite (Fort Lauderdale, Florida US) ||Age: 18 |
I'm thankful for Love, the substance of existence, the invisible force that binds rocks to the surface of a planet, binds atoms into molecules, that lifts birds high into the air and compells beavers to build their damns and moths to spin their silk. Love is the substance of family life, of friendship, and of romance. Love is divine.
