Here's a belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I couldn't get to my computer yesterday because I am the cook! As much as I adore a Turkey dinner with all the fixin's, it is a lot of work. Four hours of cooking and 20 minutes of eating! Usually I'm too tired to enjoy my meal but I'm ready for leftovers tonight. Regardless I feel extremely blessed because all my children, save one daughter, were able to spend the day with us. Our daughter, Christine, who is attending the Naval Academy flew in on Wednesday night and it's been wonderful to catch up with her. After dinner we all sat around and watched a James Bond movie marathon. It's one of the few days in the year, I don't spend glued to my laptop. Anyway, I pray everyone's Thanksgiving went well and you were blessed with family and good food.
There's been so much bad news lately in this country, the economy, the terror threats, gas prices, layoffs etc... seems like we have much to complain about. But yesterday, I stopped and thought about all we do have to be thankful for. So, I made a list of the 10 things I'm most thankful for.
2. My husband
3. My kids
4. Good health
5. Book contracts
7. Good movies and books
8. Talls ships and the age of sail!
9. The ocean
10. Good food
I'd love to hear what 10 things you're most thankful for! I really enjoyed all your comments on my last blog. I read every blog posting, so don't be shy. It really helps to stop and list the good things God has blessed you with. A sure fire way to pull yourself out of a bad mood.
For those of you brave enough to comment, I'll choose a name on Dec 8th, to receive a free copy of A Constant Heart, by Siri Mitchell. I just finished reading it and it is really good.
