Here in the US it's Thanksgiving today. I'm spending the day with a friend and her family as my family is far away. That's one thing I'm grateful for, a friend who not only has me over for the holiday but just assumes I'll be there and don't need an invitation. I'm thankful for my family and our relative good health; I'm thankful for friends near and far, old and new, offline and online; I'm thankful for my health which could be so much worse, that I have a job, a decent place to live, a cat who gives me unconditional love. I'm thankful for all the books that I have the luxury and joy of reading and the authors and publishers who create them; I'm thankful for all of the authors, publicists, and publishers who share their books and time here on the blog. I'm thankful for all of you who visit and who read, and for those of you who take the time to comment.
I hope you have a joyous day with family and friends and take a minute to reflect on all that you have for which you can be grateful.
Last night was the first night of Hannukah so to everyone who celebrates, Happy Hannukah! Have a blessed holiday.
And if you're not celebrating a holiday today, Happy Thursday! I wish you a peaceful, joyous day.
