Giving Thanks



Today is the last Friday before Thanksgiving so I am taking a moment to thank you all for being a part of my life. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people who support and encourage me as I take this journey through life. I want to thank my family who have always been there for me, my group members who hang out at the Kathi Daley Books Group Page and offer suggestions about anything and everything, my readers who purchase and enjoy my books, which allows me to work full time as an author, the folks at Henery Press for being so awesome and easy to work with, my self publish team which includes my editor Randy Ladenheim-Gil, proofreader Peggy Hyndman, cover designer Jessica Fisher, tech guy Bruce Curran, review team (too many to mention but you know who you are), recipe contributors, and the bloggers who get the word out and help promote the stories that are stomping around in my head.



This blog is short and sweet since I am on a deadline today but sometimes short and sweet is the best combination. Comment below with what you are thankful for. I will randomly choose one comment to win a $15 Amazon Gift Card.  shutterstock_111129125

    I’m thankful for a lot of things but the most important are my three grandsons that lived with me most of their lives until Mom and daddy bought the house next door a year ago. My front door is slammed open many times a day with one, two or all three popping in. They sometimes stay a few minutes or stay for hours but everyday they are in and out.

    I am thankful just for life in general, and that God has granted me another day here, as I strive to be and do every day and not just around Thanksgiving.

  15. Doward Wilson says:

    I think the one thing I am most thankful for is my eyesight. My world really does revolve around reading & wouldn’t be the same without my wonderful eyes.

  16. I am thankful that I family I can count own. I’ve been a single to my 4 years and have some health issues. Without my family helping, I could never make it. My kids are into sports and dance. My eleven year old daughter takes dance and plays basketball. Right now I’m gone 4 nights a week to practices. I have 10 year old twin boys and one plays basketball and football. I get in around 9 pm most nights for the last month. My married daughters take them sometimes or my Dad. I appreciate them so much. When games over lap at different schools, I always have someone to take one of them. We went straight from football games every Saturday for 2 months to basketball practice. Someone always helps when I need a break. We live 20 minutes for their school and 25 from the closest town where my daughter’s dance studio is so we can’t just drop them off. I’m also thankful my family lives 5 minutes from my house. Family is everything to my family and for that I’m grateful.

I am also thankful for those family members and friends who have passed on before us and the precious time we were allowed to have with them in our lives. Gone, but never forgotten… ❤

    It is hard to feel thankful with a terribly hurting heart. Today I thank for the gift of faith: that strength, power and source within showing me the way, guiding me in the dark, making sure my faltering step, giving light for finding truth and hope for living gracefully through trials and troubled times.
