There are so many wonderful things in life.

Of course, there are the peaks and valleys we journey through, and the dry times of the desert every now and then as well.

But oh to the wonderful breaths of life who touch you daily.

To Family that always is there to keep you buoyed by their support in their embraces of love and care.

To Friends that pick you up when you’re in that valley, walk with you through those difficult struggles in life, laugh and experience life with you, and are there anytime you need a shoulder and an ear.

To those Strangers you meet every day that lift you up just by their simple words of kindness and smiles.

To Nature that whispers God’s Love and Presence. The silence of the mountains, the gurgling of the streams, the breathing of the trees, as their canopy of green leaves shelters you from the hot sun on sweltering summer days.

To your Pets that are a blessing to you, settling on your lap, rubbing their furry cheek to yours, and the steady rhythm of their purr box tempering your fears, anxieties, and sadness.


There is a Lot to be Thankful for

It’s been a tough nearly two years, but within all those months and days, God has always been there, blessing me and granting His great mercy, love, and peace.

I am forever grateful for my relationship (as best as I try) with God.

I’m blessed to have my wonderful family, friends, and blog friends who follow me.

I also am so happy and grateful for all my loyal readers. All of you who read my books and leave such lovely reviews really mean so much to me, it’s hard to express. My books are recognized because of all of you buying, reading, sharing, mentioning, and reviewing them.

I’m abundantly blessed to have both my sons home for Thanksgiving and will be for Christmas, as well!

The always comforting presence of my cats add to the many joys on this day.

May you and your families have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!
