    Quoted from Daditude:

    I find it interesting that this thread has 43 posts when the "bitch thread" has almost 700.
    That explains a few things.

    Well....that was a very positive post.

    Thankful to the lord for all the blessings he has bestowed upon my family and I.

    Every day is an adventure and I'm grateful for all the little things in life that all too often are taken for granted.

    Pause once in awhile to watch a sunset, admire some random flowers on the side of the road while at a light, hold a door for a stranger, compliment a co-worker. They maybe fleeting moments but can often make ones day complete and richer.

    One of my favorite Pinsider names, danqverymuch, sums it up! He probably meant it as ironic, or ridiculous, but laughter is one of the things I’m most thankful for. And there are some hilarious people here on Pinside! Gratitude can change everything.

    We are thankful that we can make a living and get to make amazing friends & meet so many great people in an industry that we absolutely love! None of this happens without good and positive people believing in what we do.

    Thank you everyone... sincerely.

    EVERYONE at Spooky Pinball LLC.

    I am thankful for Titan Pinball bringing an ACNC to the Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo in November to play. Also thankful for Scott Danesi coming down and jammin' with us.

    I'm thankful for the support I've had from customers and on Pinside over the years! Many of the projects would not have happened if it wasn't for interaction and customer feedback here on Pinside or through emails. I hit plenty of hurdles on some projects and having people to cheer on the project helped keep the motivation up and often helped the product become better through getting feedback/ideas before it was finalized.

    Also very thankful when people send emails or PMs out of the blue to say how much they enjoyed a product once it was available -- that definitely means more than you can realize to the people creating things for this hobby!

    Honestly - I am thankful for passion in the hobby and that pinsiders do complain about valid issues.
    Nice to see the community banding together over recent PF issues and forcing manufacturers to address this issues.

    Quoted from frolic:

    Speaking of gratitude, all of this year I've been doing a "Year of Gratitude" project. First thing I do each day is open a Word doc I have a growing list in and add to it for what I'm grateful for. I will add at least 1 thing a day. So far I am over 500 and it is 15 pages of Word.
    The real treat is scrolling back through it and having my memory fire up for all these small seemingly insignificant things I was grateful for and remembering them again.

    That's a good idea! I've been working on finding a few things to be grateful for each day -- first thing in the morning, then before going to bed. Sets a positive outlook at the start of the day, and helps you sleep better too. I definitely like the thought of recording that in a journal to look over at the end of the year.

    I am thankful for all of the posts/pictures of the playfield issues between stern and JJP. You people helped save me lots of money. No nib. It’s a positive for me.

    That is an incredible idea! I love it!

    I'm thankful that pinball manufacturer's don't build automobiles. Just imagine if your new car came with a defective engine,and you had to replace it yourself.

    As much as I love pinball and am very thankful for the means to own and play them in my home, it is nowhere near how blessed I am to have the family I have.
