A year ago Neil gifted us with this post, and what a fitting thought for today. We have so much to be thankful for, not least the wonderful journey of 1000 Awesome Things that has now come to an end! Any requests for the final few awesome things before May 1?
All regular contributors should have received an invite to be a “contributor,” so leave a comment if you haven’t and I will resend. The new Journey of Awesome is just days away, stay tuned!
P.S.: there are still a last few opportunities for regular contributors, so if you’re hoping to share with your Awesome Thing with the world, let us know on the About page.
