Today I'm more conscious than ever of how lucky I am for all the wonderful people in my life--both those who are in my life now and those who were part of it at other times. I'm also grateful for all the dogs that have been part of my life--now and in the past.

I'm thankful for the glorious weather here. I find myself remembering other Thanksgivings and driving places in snow and ice or pouring rain.

I'm thankful that some of my friends are finding their ways out of crises of one kind or another and that others are enjoying remarkable good fortune.

I'm grateful for all those who take my online writing classes and for the communities of writers to which I belong.

I'm grateful for all the little blessings every day--even when there are also challenges.

I hope that each of you reading this have wonderful blessings in your lives, too. Happy Thanksgiving!
