gratitude |ˈgratəˌt(y)oōd|
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness : she expressed her gratitude to the committee for their support.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from Old French, or from medieval Latin gratitudo, from Latin gratus ‘pleasing, thankful.’
Gratitude for all of the wonderful people who helped raise awareness and funds for the Okiciyap Food Pantry.

I want to first thank Melanie in IA and BeadLady who coordinated the quilt blocks, sewn the fantastic quilting & final binding to the quilt. Thank you to these DK Quilt Guild Members; Florene, frosti, kitchen table activist, Melanie in IA, glorificus, leu2500, vtgal, winifred3, Proud of My Bleeding Heart, Embee who donated the quilt blocks, and helped to create this beautiful quilt. My pinwheel block looks awesome next to these other fabulous blocks.

I want to thank glorificus & weck for organizing & leading the quilt auction. They made this all look very easy. Kudos for all of your hard work. Thank you to Trix the Silly Rabbit of Sunday Talk, and other Open Thread writers who allowed me to shamelessly promote the DK Quilt Guild Service Projects especially the Okiciyap Quilt Auction.

Thank you to nomandates & GreyHawk for the nifty codes to allow the diaries to look professional. Thank you to the writers, who wrote beautiful poignant diaries to bring awareness of the Food Pantry and inspired us. All of the comments, ideas, challenges, cheerleading, nudging and donations for this effort.

The Okiciyap Diaries have been educational, inspiring & just plain fun.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
