Thanksgiving 2019 Post
It’s almost the end of another year, and it’s the time we all reflect on what we are thankful for this year. My family has been through a lot this year. 2019 hasn’t been the best for us so it will be good to see if 2020 brings us an easier time of it.
First I’m thankful for my parents. My dad had gone through cancer this year (in remission) which was a tough fight, he’s battled illness after illness, now it looks like dialysis and a kidney transplant are in his future. My mom has worked hard through issues of her own to take the best care of him that she can. I’m very lucky to have them both with me today.
My kids and husband have done so much for me this year. I don’t know what I would do without them. We always have ups and downs, but who doesn’t in a house of six adults. But I would miss not seeing them every day.
I’m also thankful to my blogging friends who have stuck through my phases and blogging slumps. It means so much to me that you still come by and comment. You guys are awesome and I can’t wait for the day that I meet you all in person.
In 2019 I was lucky enough to meet one of my most sought after authors at Reading On The River. I’m thankful to my family for making the trip with me. It was absolutely amazing to meet some of my favorite authors at this event. J.R. Ward has been on my list to meet for a long time. Of course I was tongue tied, but just getting a pic with her was awesome!
I’m really grateful for my friends that have been there for me through my ups and downs this year. I just hope I was there for you too. I appreciate having someone by my side through the hard times when there really wasn’t anyone else I could talk to about things. You know who you are!
I don’t want to make this a long post, so I was going to stick with 5, but I also want to thank all the other book bloggers out there that keep adding to my TBR and giving me books to look forward to even during my slumps. I may not comment as much, but I’m reading, so thank you for continuing to write!
Oh wait, I also can’t finish this off without thanking all the authors for writing the amazing stories I’ve read this year! There have been some great ones and I’m so grateful for the worlds they have created.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Keep in mind what you have to be grateful for and think of those that are not that fortunate. They could use your help to have a nice holiday as well!
