GIVING 4 Thanks-GIVING

"A grateful attitude can cleanse the woes of today and bring about unforeseen blessings tomorrow."


The world is full of problems. Personal heartache, struggles, economic challenges are only a few. And although I truly believe it's necessary to be our brother's keeper, focusing on the needs of the world can be depressing.

That's why I'm joining an amazing group of authors in thanksgiving, concentrating on the positives that have touched my life over this past year. I'm blessed with an amazing family--a husband of just under twenty years and four children who stun me on a daily basis with their zest for life and passion to explore and grow.

My life gained a new fullness, when I made to choice to forge ahead as an author and not just a weekend, amateur writer with no sense of confidence or direction. In do so, more colors entered this life I call ME, flavoring it with wisdom and special friendships I can now call my Cyber-Family of Authors and Just Cool Peeps. (Yes, that is YOU. I so HEART YOU.)

Thank you for being a part of my world and allowing me into yours.

As most of you know, signing with my agent Paula Munier was one of my biggest blessings this year. But also was the outpouring of support from each of you, whether through heartfelt congratulations or one of the many donations given as a part of my celebration giveaway. You all ASTOUND me.

Lastly, I am thankful for GOD, that he's never given up on me and always seems to show up at just the perfect moment. Thank you.

In return for the wonders that each of you are, I'm giving away a few goodies for this holiday. Just enter. Just do it. You deserve it. Of course, spreading the word and/or following Writer's Alley would be yet another thing to add to my grateful list, but that is not necessary.

Thank you, and I will be taking the rest of the week to spend time with my family - YAY! our college freshman is coming home for the long weekend! I will, however, be posting on Friday as a part of an awesome blog tour. Hope you join me.

Have a fabulous THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY!

  8. Excellent Thanksgiving post, Sheri! I couldn't agree with you more--I pray probably more than I do anything now that I'm a FT writer, and I have been so blessed as a result. The biggest blessing is you guys! What a wonderful, supportive group that I would've given up again and again if I didn't have! ((hugs))

    I'm not entering the contest b/c I have all the books! LOL! But good luck to everyone, and have a super holiday~ <3 :o)
