That's right! It's time to take the day off from everything but football, parades and help out with the cooking and eating of massive amounts of great food.
But, while everyone is on the couch after that last piece of pie, let's think about some of the things we are truly thankful for.
I'll start us off...
Our families...sure we may not get along all the time but they are "our" family, quirks and all.
Our friends...I'd like to give a big Texas shout out to Sassy and Judy in Louisana and Mary up in Oregon. Having friends who understand what it is like to be a writer is a wonderful thing and at StoryCrafters there are some great friends. Some I'd be proud to call family.
Our freedom...to get together, to make complete fools of ourselves, to come and go when and where we please. We take so many of these freedoms for granted so take a moment to think about them and say thanks.
Here are a few more things I'm thankful for...hubby that supports my writing and believes in me, reliable transportation (hate those car payments though), puters and the internet:--), thick socks, hot cocoa, milk chocolate and chocolate milk, kids that enjoy reading, finding escaped hamsters before the snake does, instant messaging, Long Ridge, StoryCrafters, pecan pie, bar-b-que and all the fixings...
I could go on and on...but you get the idea.
Tell us some of your favorite things and share the joy. Then go back for that second or third piece of pie:--)
