Illustration above from Dallas Clayton's Awesome Book of Thank You

On Thanksgiving Day, it was great to read posts from Facebook folks about what they are thankful for.

There's some fun sources of inspiration for expressing gratitude in different forms and fashions.

First, there's Leah Dietrich's book and website thxthxthx. Both creations feature handwritten notes on which she conveys her appreciation for everything from pants to Paris to patience to Paula Abdul.

Then there's Dallas Clayton's An Awesome Book of Thanks. According to Amazon, Awesome is "a beautifully written, fantastically illustrated walk through a world of magical unicorns, robotic dinosaurs, and all of life's simple moments, great and small. Crafted for children ages 0-1000, this timeless story is sure to be an instant classic, at home in the hands of anyone looking for the perfect reminder of just how beautiful life can be."

Finally, may I suggest Jimmy Fallon's Thank You Notes segment (which is now also a book!)

on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. (Just watch the videos if you can't pry your eyes open to stay up into the wee hours.)

Jimmy: "Thank you, rigatoni, for looking like regular pasta that put on corduroys."

"Thank you college diplomas, for being the world's most expensive, framable receipts."
