Thanksgiving in such a wonderful holiday, filled with the celebration of gratitude with family and friends.

2011 has been an awesome year, filled with all the thrills and adventure of the best theme park ride. And it hasn’t wound down yet.






Therefore, I feel compelled to share my gratitude:

  • For loving family and supportive friends who fill my life with joy.
  • For my little house which is a sanctuary for me and my cats (Matt and Cinders). It is a haven from which I can write and create, work and teach, love and go out into the world the way I want to be.
  • For my beautiful Wolfgang (silver Jetta) who safely delivers me where I need to be on time.
  • For my jobs with interesting work, decent people and all the money I need coming toward me.
  • For my physical health, my sanity, my emotional balance, and my spiritual quest.
  • For my curiosity, my sense of humor and my thirst for adventure.
  • For my knowledge, skills, God-given talent and for the tools, resources and knowledge to use them.
  • For all my mentors who have shared their knowledge, taught the skills and nurtured my talent.
  • For my writers groups, writing buddies and all those who have encouraged me in my journey.
  • For my stories which entertain, intrigue, inspire me –and hopefully my readers.
  • For all the abundance in my life. I will use it wisely and pay it forward.
  • For all the love and protection and guidance directed toward me and those I love.
  • For all the relationships in my life (old and new, past, present and future) I’ve gained so much from each one and pray I’ve given something in return.
  • For the opportunity to live a creative, independent, productive, prosperous, benevolent, sane healthy and happy life with family and friends.
  • For the network of writers and artists, teachers and students, family and friends who have helped me create the best possible books and get them on shelves for readers to buy and enjoy and talk about and want more.

I know I am part of a much larger, immortal, eternal universe. There is no limit there. So there is no limit in me.

I pray that I can tap into this positive source. That I can acknowledge then release negativity and that I can always show the seven faces of attraction: Creativity, Kindness, Beauty, Love, Abundance, Expansion, and Receptivity.

I release all my hopes and dreams into the Universe, knowing You will manifest them in a way most beneficial to all.
