Would Thanksgiving be a day of thanks, if we didn't say what we're thankful for? No way! So I'll start with my list. Please feel free to add your own!
- For my loving family. Kara came home from college for the holiday and everyone is healthy, wealthy in love, and wise.
- For beautiful Colorado where I'm proud to call home.
- For God's blessing on a writing career that teaches me something each time I write a word.
- For friends that offer the best kind of support -- their unceasing love.
- For my husband. Without him, growing old wouldn't be any fun.
- For an utterly enjoyable day job that makes me look forward to going to work everyday.
- For a warm house we can afford and bills that don't exceed our income.
- For my loving parents who taught me the value of work and blessing of play.
- For my grandmother who nurtured and prayed over the seed of faith in my heart.
- For Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, who loved me enough to die and rise again for me.
I could go on and on about the things I'm thankful for, but for anyone else, this would be boring. You only go around once in life, so live, laugh, and give praise!
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Philippians 4:6
Blessings to you this Thanksgiving Day!

I've been dragging my heels, but no more! I plan to complete my rough draft rewrite of Rough and Ready by Dec 31, 2008! Daunting task, you say? Not if I'm faithful. How can I call myself a writer if I don't write?
Okay, this is a rough draft, so I'm aiming for 75,000 words for a projected finished length of 90,000.
Watch my side bar and measure my progress with me : ) I know we're going into the holidays, but hey, what better time to proclaim God's glory?

Wailing my woes to the Seeker loop for support from my sisters, I whined enough to make all of us feel good : ) Camy Tang, in her infinite cyber hardware wisdom emailed a few simple steps and finally Voila!, just like in the marketing brochures : )
Anyway, take a look at the right of my blog and witness the fruits of my labor. My slideshow attempts to display my inspiration for Rough and Ready, Book One of my Circle D series. I'm doing a serious revamp of the plot and God has thrown some pretty good wrenches in my former okay plot to give the unexpected twists and turns. Well, they were unexpected to me, LOL.
I like it.
I hope you will soon, too : )

Brilliant and dangerously handsome, Mitch is a no-nonsense newspaperman who wants nothing to do with her. Charity burned him once, destroying his engagement to the only woman he ever truly loved. He won't play with matches again. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat, hoping to ignite the heart of the man she loves. And she always gets what she wants--one way or another.
Or does she? Will her best laid schemes win his love? Or will her seductive ways drive him away forever?
