Happy Turkey Day!


I just looked over my post from Thanksgiving last year (to make sure I wasn't going to be endlessly repeating myself) and realized that since this time last year I have gained 200 followers! That's a reason to be thankful. I do appreciate all you followers and those of you who stop by to leave comments.

I'm also thankful for the chance to share my thoughts and feelings with you, and to have some understanding company on this writing journey. It's not unlike the journey the pilgrims made, is it? We set off for an unknown world, encounter storms, disappointments, hard work that doesn't always pay off. And yet, there always seems to be something to be thankful for.

Today, I am thankful for the joy and satisfaction I feel as I continue to use and improve my talents. I am thankful for the chance to share them. I'm thankful for all the stories growing inside me, just waiting to be told. And I'm thankful for all of you.

What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Congratulations, Angie! You have a wonderful blog. =] And you're right about this strange journey. Everyone who writes enters a new world--repeatedly--and knowing you're not discovering on your own is a big comfort.

To-day I'm thankful for the fact that I actually have an idea for a Christmas story. I might not be a failure after all. *g*

Angie, I will enter the story in the Christmas contest if I can get it finished to my own satisfaction, but things are looking good so far. I love writing!

Congratulations on 200 followers, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and all other Americans out there. :-)

I'm thankful for the amazing life that God has given me, and for all the blessings that I don't deserve.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Terry. The one in the glasses is mine, though this was taken five years ago. He's a little bigger now!

Happy Thanksgiving, Dellgirl. Thanks for stopping by!

Melanie--yeah! Good luck on the Christmas story.

Me, too, Tyrean. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
