A time to be thankful

This is the time of year to take stock of all the things we are thankful for, both past and present. That said, I am devoting time this month to acknowledging those things that I am thankful for—those things that matter most in my life: family, friends, and writing.

My time recently has been dedicated to rewriting and editing BLUE MOUNTAIN, a nonfiction project of enormous undertaking. A difficult labor of love, this book is a tribute to my late mother to whom I owe so much. Finishing BLUE MOUNTAIN as soon as possible is my goal and gift of thanks to my family who encourages my endeavors, and eagerly awaits this story. Not forgetting my other obligations, I am also moving forward with several fiction projects—my way of being thankful for the gift and opportunity I have been given.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, I am thankful for recent publications and to be a part of an incredibly talented writing community, where I am surrounded by wonderful, creative people. I am also extremely grateful to good friends (old and new) who cheer me on and assist me along the way.

More than anything, I am appreciative for the love and support of a remarkable man who makes unbelievable sacrifices to ensure my happiness, no matter how difficult things become. He is an amazing person who encourages and inspires me, believing “the dream” is not out of reach. To my husband, Steve, I owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude—for him, I am MOST thankful!

May you have many wonderful treasures in your life to be truly thankful for—and a Happy Thanksgiving!
