Happy Thanksgiving

It’s too bad many of us only think about what we’re grateful for at Thanksgiving. We should be thankful every day. We live in a land of plenty when people in other parts of the world go hungry, have no homes, no freedoms, and live with fear every day.

As we sit around a table laden with enough food to feed two or three times as many people, we give thanks for our many blessings. Here are a few of mine.

Grandchildren who make me laugh and fill me with good cheer.

Children who’ve grown into responsible, caring adults.

My husband who’s a quiet presence in our home, always supportive, a good man.

A family who takes care of each other.

Friends who love us and care about us.

Our house that shelters us, in a neighborhood of genuinely nice people.

My talent as a writer where I can entertain readers by giving life to the characters in my head.

Supportive writing friends.

Fans who are enjoy my books.

Books that have always been my friends.

My list could go on and on. Even though I mentioned him above, I am most grateful for the man I married 44 years ago on Thanksgiving.

Safe travels to all who will be on the road this week. 

What are you grateful for?


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Diane. I am grateful for a lot of things, starting with my wonderful parents,my spiritual master, my siblings, my friends and relatives :)

    1. Happy Turkey Day to you, too, Rachna. Our gratitude list can go on forever, can't it?

  2. Thankful for many of the same things here. I'm also thankful for the unconditional love of my pets and all the many freedoms we enjoy. Happy anniversary to you and hubs!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Diane!!!

    I am thankful for my home, my car (which surprisingly still works), my cats, my mom, my nephews, my editing career, my writing talent, and all of my blogging/writing friends like you!

  4. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving, Diane.

    Even though I'm European and living in Germany, I'm very thankful for my family and friends. I'm especially thankful for my incredible husband. I don't say that often enough :)

    1. Thanks, Nicola. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family.
