Hello fellow Sanderson Fans. I just watched a video that challenged me to "flood social media" with Gratitude every day from now until Thanksgiving. I am not on traditional social media -- this forum is the closest I get to interacting online -- so this is the best I can do! I was inspired by a recent post by @Kingsdaughter613 who shared specifically how a character treated another character with compassion and patience affected her. Her post touched me and I will read the relationships between those characters differently now. I am hoping that more people will chime in on this thread and share how they have been blessed by Sanderson and his writings. These can be specific, or general -- but please post spoilers in the hidden tags if you need to reference a specific book. Perhaps Sanderson will see this thread and realize how grateful we are for his writing and insights that he shares with us -- and if he doesn't then I will have been uplifted by others who share gratitude for these stories. I'll start off with something that happened to me today. I picked up my 13 year daughter from Jr High today and she was so excited to share with me what she had read in Rhythm of War during the school day. We talked about the book and the characters and discussed what we think will happen later in the book. She had written down specific page numbers with quotes that she felt were important. I am so grateful that Brandon Sanderson has written books that the whole family can enjoy. I don't have to pretend to be interested in what she is reading because we are both truly engaged with these books. It was my son (who is now an adult) who first introduced me to Sanderson -- and I am so grateful that we have found something interesting to discuss. In short, these books have strengthened our relationships and continue to provide hours of conversation and wholesome entertainment.
