Giving Thanks

When you read this post, I'll already be back in Northern Virginia, doing some book business and spending time with my family. I'm joining my daughter Christine's family for Thanksgiving Dinner as I did last year. Son-in-law Tim's parents will also join us, so it'll be a full table. I love, love, love the Thanksgiving feast. So, we'll all probably need to go on diets the day afterwards.

In the spirit on Thanksgiving, I wanted my post for today to be one of Gratitude. There is SO very much I am grateful for, that I thought I'd get started expressing my thanks now.

First of all, I am grateful for my abundant Good Health. Without that, nothing else is possible.

Second, I am grateful for my family and friends, who despite all my craziness still manage to love me---and put up with me. :) .

Next, I am OVERWHELMINGLY grateful to you readers and fans of the Kelly Flynn Knitting Mysteries. You have made these mysteries the big bestsellers that they are, and I am continually amazed at the growing readership and support. Again, Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

Next, I am grateful to ALL the crazy characters that constantly pop into my head and demand to be put on the page.

Next, I am thankful for the ability to travel and meet so many new people and booksellers and shop owners throughout the USA during the year.

There are scores of smaller things I'm thankful for, but I'd rather hear what you folks have to say. What are YOU thankful for this Thanksgiving? What has happened in your life?

And---Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
