Many Thanks

It is that time of year again, not that I don’t wake up each day and say to the Universe, ‘thank you,’ but next week we in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel the need to publicly thank my loved ones, this great country that I live in, and my creativity. I do not know where it comes from, but I feel blessed to enjoy writing and creating books that readers enjoy.


Each night as I put my head to my pillow I give a prayer of thanks to all those I hold dear. In the morning, usually while I am driving to work I give another prayer of thanks for all the blessings I have in my life.


A wonderful quote comes to mind as we approach Thanksgiving - “It’s experiences, not material things, that bring enduring happiness.”


This has been my lifelong philosophy and at the end of my life it will be people I will miss, not the things that surround me. No one ever said, "I wish I bought more stuff."; it’s time with our loved ones that matters the most.


Simple pleasures, honest relationships, good meals and great books.


I am blessed to be having Thanksgiving dinner with most of my family next week. A true blessing. What more can I ask for?


May you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
