Giving Thanks

I'll get back to the Question Me Good series to finish it up. I promise. But today I thought I'd post some gratitude. I know it's cliche, but I can't let Thanksgiving go by without telling you all what I'm thankful for. I've had a wonderful year and I'd like to take some time to really consider all the blessings in my life.

Today and every day, I'm thankful for:

  • Love, support and commitment from My Love
  • Family and friends who love and support me, even though they're not all as nearby as I wish they were
  • Girls' nights that give me the chance to bond and laugh and do girly things with a few of those friends on a somewhat regular basis
  • My health and a body that functions just as it should
  • Hope for the future of this country and the world
  • Publication of my work in an actual book
  • A stable job that I enjoy and plenty of freelance projects to keep the creative side of me happy
  • The people that I've "met" through blogs and Twitter who are incredible writers, storytellers and plain old good people sharing snippets of their lives with me and so many others
  • Our Armed Forces troops both here in the US and abroad who protect our country every day
  • Good, local food that doesn't break the bank and keeps me healthy and happy
  • Books and time to read them
  • My house and a running car that gets me where I need to go
I'm sure there's plenty more, but you don't need to be here all day reading my list. Go make your own list and share it so others can be reminded to give thanks for all they have. So often we focus on what we don't have. At least for one day, let's do something different.

Enjoy your time with family and friends during this great holiday, eat good food, have wonderful conversation and then take a nice long nap. I know I'm going to!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
