I am blessed with a warm home and the wherewithal to afford it.
My family is healthy. No major issues beyond an occasional cold, and no one has hurt or abused the ones I love. Not even me though there are days I have been tempted.
I have the financial stability to quit a job that has lost its meaning and take a step toward a life and position I enjoy. And my husband cares enough to tighten his belt with me and face the uncertain future by my side.
Despite the occasional stress or set back, my writing is slowly finding an audience, and I am able to follow a lifelong dream. Two of my favorite editors like my WsIP and I have grown in confidence through working with them. My critique partners are unwavering in the support and honest, if sometimes painful, feedback.
Overall, I can not find an area of my life that has not been blessed over this past year. Although I worry about my kids and my parents, and my siblings, and a million and one other things, I am truly grateful for all the good in my life.
I wish all of you a healthy and happy Thanksgiving and encourage you to count your blessings with me. I would love to hear what makes your life worthy of thanks.
