Well for me as I sit here and think so many things clutter my brain with the good and the bad this year. I am truly blessed in so many ways. So here it goes these are the things I am thankful for.
This year I received my first rejection. Sounds bad huh? Well it turned out it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be because I had so many friends that reach out and lifted me out of the trenches. That’s when I realized I was blessed with being friends with some of the best writers out there. Thank you so much. You know who you are. You are all very dear to my heart.
Not long ago I started Nocturnal Night with a wish and a pray. In the beginning we were small and two ladies in particular stuck with me no matter how hard it got. Thanks Emma and Brenda for believing in my dream. Then Penny and Sheri joined us. You have both been troopers through the tough times when we barely had time to keep up with the blog but you were always there. Thanks ladies you are the best.
Then recently we added nineteen more authors to NN and you have all been amazing. I have been amazed at the blogs that grace the pages of NN. I couldn’t be prouder of all of ya’ll. I want you all to know you mean the world to me. I wouldn’t be able to do it without you. You are what breaths life into NN. Not to mention I have made some really great friends along the way. Thank you all for everything you do.

I am lucky to be married to the man of my dreams. That treats me like a princess. Yes ladies you can find a man that lives up to the heroes in our books. I love you Jeff. Then I am the lucky mom of four wonderful kids. My oldest is in the military and I couldn’t be prouder. Unfortunately he can’t be here this Thanksgiving but will be with us on Christmas so I will just hold on to that for now. I have an amazing family that goes beyond anything I could ever imagine. My children are the one thing in my life I know I did right. They have grown into some amazing young adults and my daughter is the sweetest little girl I know. I love you with all my heart.

The other thing that just about blows my mind and sends chills up my spine is I almost have a completed first draft of my ms. WooHoo! Does it get any better than that? Not in my book. I am very thankful for that. This story is very dear to my heart and has practically written its self. Thank God for my muse she is a really amazing inspiration. Don’t know what I would do without her. I speak badly of her at times but when it comes down to it she means the world to me. I am so sorry muse. I am so thankful for you. Without you I am nothing as a writer.
I am one of the most blessed people on this planet. I have an amazing family that pushes me to be the best I can be. Friends that believe in my dream even when I have lost site of it. I don't think there is anything more I could ask for. You have all filled my life with joy. You have held me up when I was weak and soothed me when the pain was too much. Thank you all so much. I love you all with all my heart and soul.
Well those are the things I am thankful for. What are you thankful for?
I am truly bless with the greatest family and the best friends anyone could have.
