Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving, the holiday, is, of course, about giving thanks. So I think I will.

I am thankful for my wife. She supports my choices, encourages me to take chances, and comforts me when I am blue.

I am thankful for my cat. She makes me laugh with her silly antics, keeps my lap warm when she visits me at the computer, and greets me warmly every time I return home.

I am thankful for my friends. They are stalwarts all, and provide entertainments, camaraderie, and aid me in seeing a broader world.

I had opportunity, just recently, to visit with one of my longest term friends. The dedication in Into The Fire is to him. I really enjoyed the opportunity to catch up (we hadn’t seen one another for quite some time), and he made me realize just how much I have enjoyed writing. I haven’t spoken as animatedly, nor with as much pleasure about a topic for quite some time. So I am thankful for that opportunity, both to catch up and to learn something about myself and writing.

I hope the day is filled with good things for all of you.

One thought on “Giving Thanks”

  1. I also really enjoyed catching up. As you noted, it was really great to see your enthusiasm in telling of the writing/creation of the book. Enough so that it has sparked a fire in my keyboard (as it were) to dust off some old plot ideas and start moving forward. Looking forward to the next inspirational meetup.
