Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the
and because it’s 2020, things are a little different. I did take PTO for the week, so I hope to get some writing done, but I am not having
friends/family over for Thanksgiving dinner, which I have always done in the past. It was a
mutual decision given the circumstances of this year. Oh, I’m still cooking,
but a lot less than usual. Instead of three pies and a cheesecake, I’m just
making the cheesecake. Instead of two dozen deviled eggs, I’m making half. Not
having a relish tray, nor half the other things I usually do. It’s just my DH
and I (and the dogs, of course), and really, we don’t need all that food. United States
Still, I am very thankful…and let me tell you why (yes, I’m counting my blessings because I have been truly blessed). These are in no particular order.
I have my health (knock wood) and so does my DH, though he’s having issues with blood pressure. We are keeping ourselves safe and sticking close to home as much as possible and when I do go into the office twice a week, I wear a mask, physically distance, wash my hands (a lot) and wipe down everything I touch with disinfectant wipes. It just seems like the best thing to do since I’m very fond of the people I work with.
I’m thankful that I have a job I love.
I’m thankful for friends and family (and the friends I’ve made my family).
I’m thankful for the son I adore.
I’m thankful for my DH, who shares my quirky sense of humor (okay, I’ll admit, his sense of humor is definitely quirkier) and makes me laugh. We’ll be married 40 years come January and I can tell you, quite honestly, there’s no one else I’d rather spend my life with (that’s not to say he doesn’t drive me crazy, because he does. I’m sure I drive him crazy as well).
I’m thankful I have a roof over my head and food on my table.
I’m thankful I have the opportunity to write romance novels that hopefully make people laugh, cry, and believe in happy endings.
Plain and simple, gentle readers, I am very thankful for everything and truly blessed.
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!
