41. Thankful
(adj) feeling or showing gratitude
Location Placed: Barnes and Noble, Eatontown, New Jersey
Date Placed: 9/3/10 ~6:00p.m.

If you notice, I chose a very special book to place this crane next to. I am extremely thankful for the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr for being the inspiration in my project. This book was a considerably newer version than the one I picked up from the library. (I think I was most pleased to see that it was on the required reading table -or whatever the proper name is- for elementary school children.) If you've not read it, I highly recommend you do. It's a short but inspiring read.

I was tempted to wait until Thanksgiving to do this one to talk mention all I am thankful for, but decided that I am not only thankful on Thanksgiving (celebrated in the United States on the 4th Thursday in November.) I am thankful every day, in the least corny way possible. I wanted to take a little time to thank you, my followers/readers/people stopping by. I appreciate all the kind words, help and suggestions you've given me. So thanks everyone!

I also wanted to thank my friend Julia of The "Thank You" Project. She gave me a fair amount of help when I was in the very beginning of my project. So much thanks to you as well!

So, readers, what are you thankful for?

  1. I'm biased, but this would have to be my favorite crane :)) And I definately like the placement and how special it is for you - it's like giving thanks where due! The story that inspired you gets some thankful recognition, very remarkable and very special!

    Thank YOU, Sandy! :)
