A thank you :)

I recently saw some posts on Facebook and Twitter where people were writing about the things they were thankful for. Some people even wrote every day. I had considered posting something similar, but didn’t end up posting anything then.

They say that as you get older, you get wiser. I’ve learned that thankfulness should not find me during a specific time of year because there are things we can all be thankful for each and every day. We can be thankful for the roofs over our heads; the warm meal we just had, or the jobs we may have. We can find something to be thankful about whether it is the smallest things, or the biggest successes.

Today I’m thankful for my family, who go out of the way to make sure I have things that help me throughout my day. One great example of this is my
Google Glasses Campaign.
They have tirelessly shared my campaign on Facebook, talked to people about the glasses, and they’ve done their own research so that they can understand what the glasses will do for me. Thank you to my family for doing all of this, and thank you for supporting Me.

I have many great supporters. You also deserve many thanks for re-sharing all of the Facebook posts and tweets, donating, and getting the word out there about this. For those of you who have donated, thank you letters will be sent to you in the coming days, if you have not already received one from me.

I thank you all for sharing my tweets and Facebook post, for donating to the campaign, for believing in me, and for taking time out to listen to me or my mom try to explain what these glasses are. I give you all my thanks. When they arrive, the glasses will become an integral part of life, right beside my iPhone, Braille display and computer. I do plan to post some videos and pictures here with the glasses.

Thanks for reading my blog post. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
