Celebrating With Gratitude

It's the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States and while I am so happy to have a very long weekend, I am also filled with a profound sense of gratitude for all the people in my life, all that I've accomplished and all that I have.

I am grateful for my family. I irritate them, yell at them, tease them and yet, they stick with me for some reason. I love them very much and would not be the person I am without them.

I am grateful for all of my friends, both here with me and out there on the web. I do not know what I would do without all of you. You support me, put up with my quirks and weirdness, my potty mouth and allow me to be me in all my eclectic glory. I love you all very much.

I am grateful for being able to walk around. I have severe arthritis in my hips, knees, shoulders and hands. Have had it since I was in my early twenties, a legacy from my grandmother. Sometimes, it is a wonder I can move at all some days and I am ever so grateful to still be kicking.

I am grateful for my writing. It is my passion and I am grateful that the voices in my head keep talking to me and allow me to create such adventures. I am gobsmacked that I am published and that people really seem to enjoy the tales that spin out of my demented brain.

I'll be in and out this weekend, not sure if I'll post, but I'll be around. Take care, my friends. Have an amazing rest of the week and a beautiful weekend. Peace.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Mel!

    ...and I'm grateful to have you as a friend. :)

  2. We don't get it over here. But hope you have an awesome thanksgiving. Xx

  3. have nice holidays, darling, and do some swing dancing for that horrible arthritis and tape it on camera, we wanna see you do a little dance to brighten our week :PPPP

  4. I seriously doubt you annoy anyone!
    You'll enjoy The Muppets. Slow start, and very cheesy, but once they break that fourth barrier and the audience is in on the joke that the Muppets are making fun of themselves, you'll enjoy the ride. And it's definite a movie for those who are over thirty-five and grew up with the original show.

  5. I love your quirky personality; you shine to me! I love your wit and language! You put the fun in blogging! I love your voice and plan to read one of your books, so I can enjoy the energy you put out there~

    I'm sorry you are in pain; so many creative people are in pain! I know pain, too~ It sucks, but art and it's creative endeavors keep us from submitting to it~

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday; I love the way you shared your grateful! I'm happy I met you! xo

  6. Keep enjoying your blessings.
    Happy Thanksgiving, Melissa.

  7. Happy thankgiving! Canada celebrated it a month ago.

  8. What a great read Mel, thanks for sharing.

    It's funny because I have been thinking lately about what an amazing tool Twitter is and how cool and wonderful some people are and how we share similar interests.

    I am grateful for being able to connect with such great people, have really interesting conversations, and generally be able to share a laugh.

    So by that token, I say thank you, and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  9. Gobble! Happy Thanksgiving, Melissa!
