Here in the US, we pause on the 4th Thursday in November to celebrate Thanksgiving. It may be a rememberance of the first winter the Pilgrims weathered and the feast they enjoyed. It's also a day to pig out - I love any excuse to eat :) But I also like to use Thanksgiving Day to remind myself of all the things I'm thankful for - today, and all through the year.
I'm thankful for my family. For my loving, supportive husband and terrific kids. For our new house that is starting to feel like home.
For all my friends in the writing community (my RWA chaptermates, the Romance Divas, Desirables, and cps), I treasure your friendship, inspiration and support.
For three publishers, Samhain, Ellora's Cave and Red Sage, who took a chance on a new author. For my editors, Laurie, Bree, and Felecia, who help make my stories the best they can be.
And for the readers who have started buying my books! I love you!!
If you get a chance to stop by during this busy day, please leave a comment on what you're thankful for this year, whether you're in the US or not. Or at least stop a moment and remember what you have to be thankful for.
