I have so much to be thankful for this year, and this Thanksgiving Day “zone” has brought it home to me in a way I’ve never before experienced. Here’s my gratitude, not in any order of importance, because to me they are all equally important!
I am thankful for, first of all, the fact that I am still here to enjoy this amazing world gifted to us by our Creator. And grateful that, through His grace, I’m here to ejnoy it.
I hadn’t realized how close I came to not being here until a visiting nurse set me straight. So, Thank You to French Hospital in San Luis Obispo (SLO) and SLO Transitional Care for your gentleness, expertise and diligence in saving my life.
Second, I am grateful for all my wonderful church friends,
(I’m so happy to be back singing and cantoring again) and my writer friends,
whose care, concern and love pulled me through. Without all those prayers, I don’t think I would be here. I’m so grateful to be out and about among you once again.
Third, I’m grateful for my wonderful, amazing son, from whom I have (finally!) learned a “can do” attitude.
He’s a true 21st Century Renaissance Man (writer, cinematographer, musician, composer, etc.) and my computer guru, cover designer, cheerleader and first line of defense against doubt.
And, of course, I’m so very grateful to all my readers. You give me courage and purpose in life. So, my final gratitude is that I’m back at the computer, putting words down on paper, for readers everywhere to enjoy. I thank you all.
