Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday for us. We don’t do much in the way of trimmings–turkey, decorating the house, etc. We’ve spent Thanksgiving in a cabover camper eating pizza and cookie dough before. This year I’ll be spending it in Oregon in an RV trailer. After the actual day, I’ll be helping my husband to set up crab traps.
But I do like the idea of a day in which we give thanks. That part of it I’m completely on board with. So, some random things I’m thankful for:
First of all, thanks to everyone I’ve met blogging. You’ve educated me and enriched my life, and that has been a gift beyond price. Thank you so much for that.
I’m grateful for family and real-life friendships, for the warmth in being able to hug another human being and tell them you love them.
I’m grateful beyond words for the love lavished on me by my border collie and German shepherd.
I’ve grown as a writer this year, and that is definitely something to be thankful for. I’m still trying to figure out the marketing thing, but at least the books should be worth reading when I publish them, whether that’s through trade publishers or Amazon.
I paid off my student loan this year. I’m definitely relieved to be shut of that thing.
I live in a beautiful place (the Sierra Nevada foothills of California), I have a roof over my head, a car to drive, clothes to wear–all the basic necessities are covered.
Really, it’s a lot to be grateful for. May you all have many blessings in your life as well. 🙂
