giving thanks

Thanks everyone for helping me choose my TODAY Show outfit! Which one will I wear? Well, you'll just have to tune in to see! Ha ha. But, I will announce the jam winner next week--I want to wait until then as some might be too consumed by the holiday right now to claim their prize (though it's really good jam!).

And Thanksgiving is a very appropriate holiday. For those of you who have read Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, you know that thankfulness is one of the themes. To me, knowing and remembering how truly lucky I am is perhaps my greatest fortune. And hopefully, yours too.

This Thanksgiving:

I am grateful for the the typical but very, very important: health(except for some bad teeth), great friends, and family.
I am grateful that the work that I have tried my best with has been well received.
I am grateful that I finally got to go to PEI
I am grateful for tolerant sasquatches
I am grateful that I finally learned how to make a frosting rose
I am grateful that Al Roker chose my book
I am grateful that my books have such lovely and supportive fans!

I have many more things than that to be thankful for, but those are some of the big ones. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I am thankful that we're friends, too -- in fact, friends -- especially the Blue Rose Girls and my best friend, Gwen-who-writes-for-TV -- are the #1 thing I'm thankful for this year. Thank you Grace and BRGs!

I'm also thankful for my health (my broken arm is almost healed which it wouldn't have were I not healthy), my talent, and things I think I've been inclined to take for granted that most people in the world don't have: a nice and safe place to live, not only enough but delicious food every day, and the sunrise, especially, being able to see it every morning over the water from my living room window, and for all the authors whose books I read over and over.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I too am grateful for the incredible community of friends, colleagues, and book lovers I am lucky to know. Thank you all!
