I AM GRATEFUL FOR:

 

 

The love of my family: My daughter Heather and my grandson Dawson hold my heart.Heather and Dawson IMG_0351

My church: It keeps me on the path to a kinder and richer existence.

Treasured friends: You know who you are. Some I’ve known a quarter of a century. Others, I am coming to know in delightful ways.  Thank you for loving me as I am.

My day job: I get the opportunity to share knowledge with Social Security recipients.

My writer’s critique group: You’ve helped me write four books over the last few years. Your insights and honesty have made me a better writer.buck-creek-26

My home: As a child in a military family, I moved every three years. I have now lived in my house for twenty-seven years. I love the security and sanctity of my home.

Mom and Dad. Grandma and Grandpa. Aunt Helen and Uncle Ike. Long-gone, but not forgotten. I love you all and will see you on the other side.

My siblings: Dennis, Larry, Rayven and our beloved brother Rob who left us way too soon. What a wild and crazy trip it’s been.

My Mustang: I’ve always been a practical person and drove sensible cars that I kept for years. Thanks to my grandson who whispered in my ear, “Buy it, Grandma, please.”

Mt. Rainier: You take my breath away every day.

Thanksgiving: It reminds me to pause and remember how rich I am, how much I have been given, and how much I am deeply blessed.

  1. I admire your tenacity and dedication to your writing, and I’m thankful that you’re a member of our writing group. Every month I look forward to the next chapter in Nick Winston and Pat Strom’s adventures, and I can hardly wait to find out what happens next.
    Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and keep on writing.

    • My daughter is spending some time in cabins near Mt. Rainier called Gateway Inn and Cabins. I thought I’d check it out for our next writing retreat. Thank you for your kind words, Kathy. I am deeply grateful for the writing support of our group, but mostly for the deep bonds of friendship we have forged.
