It's Thanksgiving month, and so (especially with the difficult year that 2020 has been), I think it's a great time to share what we're thankful for! Typically when I start a thread like this, I focus on this community and the hobby, but this year, let's just make it open-ended. You can feel free to share about what you're thankful for in the hobby and even tag people you're grateful to, but you could also name other things outside the hobby that have kept you thinking positive thoughts and have kept you going.

So, let's get started!

Share what/who/anything you're grateful for!

- Kindness and love shown from others
- my daughter’s success with college
- R2R site for collaboration and good use of my time each day

I could call out a few folks on here who have sold me stuff or have answered questions, or just posted interesting threads about life, reef life, and even death and bad parameters that need to be adjusted, when possible.

I am thankful for all of these.

Extremely thankful for this community. You all are a really amazing community and its fun to being able to see this hobby grow from early 2000.

This forum has a special place in my heart, and without it the internet would not be nearly as fun!

I am thankful for everyone that I have met through this hobby and everyone who has supported me throughout my reefing adventures! I used this hobby to pay for my tuition and have made life long friends along the way!

I'm thankful for
My family
My home
This crazy hobby and this wonderful community
And especially my wonderful wife

When things get particularly tough, it can be hard to remember just how fortunate we are. Thanks for the reminder!

I'm thankful for this amazing community! It has helped me through some difficult times in my life.
I'm thankful for yet another mild, fun day.
I'm thankful for God's touch in my life that has been so evident as of late.
I'm thankful for the stores that have been able to stay open though the pandemic and I am thankful for a great LFS.
I'm thankful for al of the great people that I have had the blessing of meeting in my life thus far.
I am thankful for family that supports me with my hobbies, but also keeps me from doing stupid things.
I'm thankful for that one day, years and years back, when I learned it was possible to grow a captive reef on ceramic tiles in a basement aquarium.
And I am forever thankful for the blessing of 11 siblings, 3 inlaws and 7 niblings!

I am thankful for my great wife who has put up with me since 1982, my kids who have made me proud and their beautiful kids, my animal friends that keep me company every day and dont care if I get dressed.
I am thankful that no matter what happens tomorrow I have had a good time.
I am thankful you bother to read what I ramble on about and respond to it.
 

Do you have a little reefing side hustle that helps you earn money to put back into your hobby?
