Thanksgiving Post

I am blessed, truly blessed for so many things. Life is a miracle.

This Thanksgiving I’m spending  the day with PJ in our cabin on the small Gulf Island where we raised our girls. We are sitting beside a wood fire in a companionable silence, Kindles in hand. The wood fire crackles giving off a lovely, cedar smell, which blends perfectly with the aroma of a the turkey roasting in the kitchen. There are butter tarts for dessert.

I’m so very thankful to still have the cabin and of course my loving husband PJ who has stuck with me as if he were the peanut butter in a peanut butter and jam sandwich, through all the ups and downs of our many years together.

I am also thankful for my beautiful daughters, their wonderful husbands and each of my perfect grandchildren.

I’m thankful for my brother and sister and their families who are always in my heart.

Lastly but never leastly, I’m thankful for my friends near and far, in flesh and on-line. Our relationships mean the world to me.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would see stats like this. After being posted for one day on Amazon it ranked:

#18 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads >  Science Fiction & Fantasy

# 56 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > Romance

# 135 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > Ghosts

Of course it’s slipped since then, but it is still performing above and beyond my expectations.

So … if you’re looking for an inexpensive gift for a friend for Christmas, remember it’s only 99 cents. Click on the cover for the buy link.
