After last week, where so many authors put themselves out to participate on the blog, I thought today, I'd delve into their souls. As readers visit here too, I think it is nice for them to see that an author isn’t just a novel churning machine. lol Before we start, are you follower? In the next week or so there will be a huge event. If you miss it, because you are not keeping up with whats happening, boy, will you regret it.
Firstly, congratulations to Sally Odger, who won my little pressie for the best comment. It was very hard to choose I can tell you.
Also, a big whoop whoop, to Louise Wise who won the free proof read from All Write
So today’s topic is Being Thankful. A subject from an author friend’s blog not so long ago.
Lets face it, we all have a moan about life, people and circumstances. I mean, come on, life is so stressful. But, be honest, who stopped today to actual think about what is good in their life?
Today, is a day for sharing what you are really thankful for.
The present for the most insightful comment is something very special. Only the winner will know what it is.
Yesterday I spoke to a woman who is terminally ill. That’s one of my jobs. Helping those who feel lost, alone and afraid. But on this day her words helped me instead. How? She reminded me that however fragile life is, we should be thankful we were given the chance to live it. She said, I am thankful to have been given the chance to know all the people in my life. A simple statement, with a huge message. Instead of floundering under the pressure of an illness that will take her life, she was happy and laughing with her family. Just thankful to be able to share her life with them.
So, to start the ball rolling, here are the things I am thankful for;
That my son came back from the Iraq war, when so many mothers’ sons did not.
For my daughter who survived a nervous breakdown and now lives a full and happy life.
For my husband who survived two heart attacks and is battling a devastating illness, yet still puts himself out to help others.
Last, but never least, I am thankful for my friends, faceless ones on the internet included, who never fail to cheer me up.
