I, like most people, spend a lot of time wishing. I wish for things I
thought I'd have by now, things that I had hoped for, do hope for,
things that I believe will solve certain problems, fill certain holes
and so on.
I don't spend nearly enough time thinking about everything I have.
For instance, I have an amazing son. He continues to wow me with his insights, kindness, courage, and intellect. Can he be a challenge? God yes. But I'm so amazingly grateful for this child. He is my center and my inspiration.
I have people in my life who love me and whom I dearly love in return. People who don't judge me for my moments of crazy or my many flaws. People who take me into their hearts and their lives. Notice that I say "people." That's plural. We are lucky when we have one person like that we can count on. I have several. I'm blessed.
upcoming erotic fiction trilogy. I continue to get royalties from my six traditionally published Sophie books and my self-published novel generates a steady income for me every month. I have a small (relative to J.K's) but incredibly loyal readership, I believe in my talent and potential and that self-respect and ability to take pride in my work and my accomplishments is worth being insanely grateful for.
In other words, I'm truly happy with what I have in my life. I'm happy with the oppertunities available to me, I'm happy with my friends and family.
I'm just happy.
How can I not be grateful for that.
Happy Thanksgiving, and don't forget to thank those who you are thankful for.
