As I reflect on all I have to be thankful for, I am astounded that there is so much! We tend to go through our days without stopping to really take a look around us and truly appreciate what we have. We are always chasing a carrot just out of reach. But, today, I pause to give thanks for all that I am blessed with.
First and foremost, I am thankful for my amazing two daughters. They are strong young women raising families while still managing careers. I couldn’t be more proud.
I am thankful for five unique and awesome grandchildren! And, I’m thankful I live close enough that I get to see them often (sometimes too often.) 🙂
I am thankful that I have created an entirely new career for myself…one I could never have imagined!
I am thankful for the writing organizations that have enhanced, supported, taught and uplifted me along this journey.
The beautiful friendships that I have formed around the world are cherished!
I am thankful for my apartment. I know that may sound silly, but I truly am thankful for my sanctuary. It is quiet, unassuming and has everything I need to be comfortable.
I am thankful for the music and the awesome people who make the music that feeds my soul!
Closing the night out with a hug from Cody Jinks!

Jan Sikes and Willie after the concert. Look at the sweat under Willie’s arm. He was exhausted and I don’t know where my smile was. I think I was just feeling his exhaustion.

I am thankful for my sister who patiently mentors and encourages me. We talk every Sunday morning over a cup of coffee, by phone, and solve all the problems in our stories and the world. 🙂
I am thankful for my best friend of over 35 years. We have been through lots together!
As Rick told the Baptist preacher, I am thankful for the breath that sustains life. I’m thankful for faith and hope that are my constant companions.
I am thankful for the beautiful angels that watch over, protect and help when they can.
I am thankful for all of you who follow my blog and leave comments when something interests you. I appreciate the encouragement you give when I post stories.
I am a most blessed person!
