Today is Thanksgiving here in the U.S.
Now, you may have noticed that the global economy isn’t exactly doing well. There’s war. Starvation. All sorts of bad, scary things going on.
So–just for today–how about sharing 7 things that you’re thankful for?
This can be about books, sure–authors you appreciate, books you love, an ode to your public library–but also, how about other things, too? Because in times like these, with bills piling up and disaster seemingly lurking around every corner, it’s more important than ever to stop and take stock of the things we’re grateful for. Family. Friends. Good health (I hope). Coffee and tea. Turkey. Sunshine. Wagging tails. Curling up with a good book.
So, how about it? Spread a little positive thinking and tell the world what there is to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. Readers – I am very thankful to ALL my readers who visit Caribousmom and share their thoughts and read my posts. I have met some of the most wonderful people through the book blogging community: readers, writers, publishers and publicists, and everyone in between.
I am also thankful for:
The animals that fill my life – my two dogs and two cats, the horses of Triple Creek Ranch, the strays that show up from time to time depending on me to find them a home, my friends’ pets, and the animals that have passed through this life at my side. I am always reminded of how simple life can be when I connect with an animal.
My patients – people who wake up each day facing physical challenges I can only imagine. Their hard work and focus on what is possible vs. what limits them reminds me to emphasize the positive and not let the little things get me down.
My friends – those who live close by and those from far away. There are so many special people in my life who have blessed me with their humor, strength, insight and caring.
