Giving Thanks

Next week is Thanksgiving and my son has the whole week off from school. We have a lot of activities planned so I decided to write my list of things I’m thankful for a week early.

– My family

– The many wonderful people who are my friends

– My “real” or “day” job that pays the bills so I can continue pursuing my love of writing

– That I enjoy both of my jobs

– That my jobs allow me to not only support my family but also spoil them a bit

– The ability to craft interesting and entertaining stories

– The fans who enjoy my stories

– Fan mail

– My editors, Angie and Shannon, who help me be a better writer

– The wonderful computer gurus who keep me from kicking the infernal machines

– Coffee

– Chocolate

– The difficult times which have afforded me a true appreciation for the good times

I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and hope you will take the time to give thanks for all the wonderful things in your life!
