Ramblings of Thanks 2011

Today, I’m thankful for many things.  I have two wonderful sons who call me nearly every night to talk and play games.  I have both of my parents who are still here to enjoy this day with me.  I have a great sister and four amazing nieces.  I have some of the best friends a man could wish for.  I also have some great extended family members who care for me and encourage me.  I have a steady job with good benefits.  I have an excellent new publisher that works hard to produce a quality product and generates promotion and marketing campaigns for their books.  All of these are my reasons for thanks.

I’m also thankful for the years I got to share with my grandparents.  Nobody can make you feel loved the way a grandparent can, and I’m blessed to have had Carl, David Sr., Betty Jo, and Helen as mine.

I’m thankful for my readers, who give me the reason to keep writing my books and this blog.  Without them, I would have given up long ago.  I’m thankful for the ability to write and all of the teachers who honed my skills.

Most of all, I am thankful for my life, which nearly ended 23 years ago.  I’m grateful for all these years, even the difficult ones.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Thank you for being part of my life.
