It's Thanksgiving here in the US. For many people, it's a day of reflection on our challenges and blessings that signals the coming end of the year.

I've recently really enjoyed the #discuss tag and discussion threads on this site. You could say I am a little thankful for them πŸ™‚. Prompted by Ben, Jess, and Peter's posts expressing gratitude to the community and its sponsors, I am curious to hear the community's response.

What are you thankful for this year?

Feel free to share anything, I don't mean specifically learning, community, or profession-related, I'm just asking in generalπŸ™‚.

I'm thankful for eating a really bad egg last month that landed me 3 days in the hospital. I know it sounds like a horrible experience (which it was) but, in the middle of it all, I had this really weird dream that made me realize that I was going through a really bad path and since then, I've been taking measures into fixing that!

I think I've gotten better and my life has been getting a lot less frustrating as well! Acceptance has become a huge uhm tool? this month and like I said, things have become a whole lot cooler, so I'm very grateful for all of this :3

(I've also become more corny omg is embarrassed)

I'm thankful to my company for hiring me while I did not know anything about programming, I am thankful to them for trusting me and helping me when I need it. I have learnt a lot since.

Also, I am thankful to my family, I love them so much and I really enjoy the monthly family meal.

I'm really thankful to god for enabling me to learn the craft of Programming.
Been coding since 13 years old and it has been a blessing. A lot of learning opportunities and experiences that has enabled me to become a better version of myself.

Also Thankful to the people whose books or articles I read cause that was the only source of information to me.

Thanks to the general Programmer Community on the internet you guys are super supportive.

I'm thankful to current startup I work-in which made me realize a lot of important facts on trusting people, negotiation, code-reviews, technical debt and so many other factors.
