Happy Thanksgiving

Wow, this marks the third Thanksgiving on my blog! Thanks to all of my followers and readers. I'm grateful to have you with me to share the long, bumpy ride to publication.

The things I'm thankful for don't change much (as evidenced by my list from 2009), but always include the health and support of my family, the time to write, and friends to share the journey with.

I’m taking a hiatus this week to spend time with my husband and kids, and work on my NaNoWriMo WIP.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! (And if you don’t celebrate, then just have a great week!) 😉

Feel free to share what you're thankful for, and I'll be back next Tuesday.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Gwen!

    I’m thankful for my family, my health, my amazing friends as well. I was reminded of my good fortune just yesterday when my office put up the Secret Santa list.

    I always ask for outrageous things from my secret santa (like an agent, a handsome man etc) and then tack on “or a pair of dangly earrings” to the end of the list. This year they got out the old list, and I saw to my amazement I had received everything on my dream list from last year, plus outstanding dangly earrings.

    So this year I am especially grateful, and my favorite thing of all is getting to be a mom once again, with the addition of a step daughter to my life.

      That’s awesome, Carey! I love looking back and goal lists and realizing how much I’ve accomplished. I’m glad you have so much to be thankful for this year! Have a great holiday.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Gwen. It’s nice to have opportunities like this each year to think about our lives, our blessings, and all the many things for which we should be thankful. I know there are times I tend to focus on the negative (just ask my wife, whose unwavering Panglossian nature is a continual source of inspiration), so I’m happy when I have the chance to focus more on the positive things in my life. I hope one day to be as much an optimist as she is. Until then, I’m a work in progress 🙂

      I did, Dave, thanks! I agree that it’s good to have moments that encourage us to savor the good in our lives.

      My what a large vocabulary you have. Panglossian! Love that. I’m on your wife’s side of the camp. Admitting your problem is the first step to recovery. 😉

      Hope you had a great holiday!
