Thank You!

It’s Thanksgiving time! πŸ™‚

First, my thanks goes to God, Allah, Almighty, Providence, the Great One, the Spirit, Mother Nature, the Infinite, or whoever is out there who listens to my prayers to keep my parents, siblings, friends, and myself healthy and happy.

My second thanks goes to the voices from afar: my mom, dad, and siblings. Well, too bad, you won’t read this, but you are always in my heart!

Third, am gonna give my thanks to those that continue to influence me positively; and they are people I consider my friends, genuine friends, close friends, very close friends, best friends, and my lovies. Thank you for all your support everyday in my life! I only wish to be as good a friend to you as you are to me.

Fourth, my thanks goes to fellow bloggers and visitors of this blog! Thank you for stopping by, liking, or commenting on my posts. That means a lot to me. It makes me smile and work harder. I always welcome comments, of course, constructive ones; no one benefits from purely negative comments, and I am thankful I haven’t had that problem. I appreciate all the positive feedbacks, and am not allergic to criticisms, so please feel free to throw rocks at me, rocks that will make me stronger, not weaker! πŸ™‚

Happy Thanksgiving to y’all!!

I would like to mention three Birthday gifts that Kweschn! received on and before its birth date. πŸ™‚ Quite humbling and exciting! πŸ˜€

The first one, of course, came from one of my favorite bloggers, Isadora who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, and it’s an honor! Thank you! πŸ™‚

Second one came from A Pakistani Boy, another favorite blogger of mine who also nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you! πŸ™‚

Kweschn! was so delighted and truly humbled by both awards! πŸ˜€

The third surprise came from Habesha Hub at Hubesha.com (“… a community website determined to bring you all the fun stuff from East Africa…”). Kweschn! was chosen as “Top 5 Informative Ethiopian Blogs to Watch.” I thank and accept the appreciation though am not sure I deserve it because I believe there are other more deserving blogs.

Am so touched by all these! … I wanna hide somewhere in the corner. Thanks for the love y’all! It’s indeed a confidence booster, and makes me work even harder!

Last but not least, the article The Martha ManifestoΒ will be out tomorrow on Pambazuka News, a pan-African website that “… disseminates analysis and debate on the struggle for freedom and justice.”

Let’s be thankful to the poor turkey, all the delicious food, and sweet drinks that will be inside our stomach on Thanksgiving Day! πŸ™‚ And let’s remember those who won’t be equally celebrating the holiday! As fellow blogger, Kel Trustsnoone, wrote:

Thanksgiving Day should be remembered not just as a day when we give thanks for our own abundances in life, but more deeply and historically the executions of innocent men, women and children as well as their abundant sacrifices for this land. In our Thanksgiving Day celebrations, let us therefore tell one another the true origins of the thanksgiving story and the genocide of the Native American Indians that rightfully should be remembered, especially by us Americans.

Cheers,
