It's Turkey Day here in the States and I have a lot to be thankful for this year.
1. My family, without whose love and support I would be lost. I know I drive them nuts, so I'm especially grateful. My mom, who never gives up on me and is always there to listen, to hug and whatever else I need. My sisters who are always ready to help, to encourage and to give me a reality check. My brothers, Alan and Gary, I irritate them and they probably wonder when I'm going to get it together, but I can always,always count on them. My brother-in-law, whose humor gets me laughing no matter what and who is a great listener. My sister-in-law, a rock and a drill sergeant who always gives me unquestioning support, but doesn't hesitate to give me a swift kick when I need one. My nephews, who love their Auntie Moe without question and who always make me laugh and help me keep things in perspective.
2. My friends, whose encouragement, loyalty and humor never waiver. Without them, I... Well, I shudder to think what my life would be like without them.
3. My crit partners, who have made me a better writer by sharing their knowledge and who always keep me on track when I'm going off the deep end. I would not be the writer I am without them.
4. All of you out there. You are my extended support network and without you, I would not be the same writer. Your support of me and my stories is incredible and I cannot thank you enough.
I wish all of you peace, joy and many, many blessings. Thank you!
