On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, I wish my reader friends all the blessings, peace & joy of giving thanks for the things we have received. I feel like sharing my thankfulness with my favorite folks. Right now it would be easy to list concerns but I have faith that these will be addressed by the one with more power than any of us. The last few months have been trying for me as i recovered from the trauma of broken bones. Today I can say thankfully I am almost back to a good place. Good medical care, friends and family has made this possible. Most of my family will gather for the Thanksgiving feast and festivities. Preparation of all our favorite dishes are divided among many hands, so an easy relaxing day of fun, laughs and lots of turkey. Along with the thanks for the big things, I am very content with enjoying the simple things—good books, a treasure of recorded oldie movies, the adoration of my fifteen year old kitty—family and friends close by—opportunities for service—stories to write and for the man whose spirit is always at the head of our table. Cold winter days are very inviting to writing. My hope is finish up this last book in time for summer publication. Wish me luck. Shirley
