Oh boy, I am really in for it now. I have 4 weeks worth of prompts to catch up with by the end of tomorrow. Can I do it? We'll see. 

Week 48 (November 26-December 2) – Thankful. November 26 is Thanksgiving in the U.S. Interpret the “thankful” theme however you’d like.

Now you're probably wondering what this thing is I created. It's a word cloud that I made for free on the website WordClouds.com. This was my first time making one of these and I think it came out not too shabby. 

So what does this have to do with the theme "thankful?"  The places that I've listed here are some of the places my ancestors came from. These were the places they called home. Finding where my ancestors lived and researching about their lives has allowed me a chance to feel more connected to them. I carry their spirits in my heart and in my mind. If you look at the word cloud, you may just be able to make out that it is in the shape of a heart. Some say that home is where the heart is. My ancestors have brought me on a journey home. They have led me to my own heart.
