Faith 'n' Fiction Saturday: Gratitude

Welcome to Faith'n'Fiction Saturday! Please read the introductory post to learn more!

Please note: Next weekend I'll be unplugging from blogging activities to enjoy a restful weekend with my family and reading. There will be no Faith'n'Fiction Saturday! I hope you take the time to enjoy your life as well. :) The following week I'll be asking for your holiday gift guides so be ready!

Today's Topic

With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I'd keep it simple today and just ask what you're thankful for this year. Every year is so different, and we learn to appreciate different things in different seasons of life. If you have a favorite Thanksgiving book or passage from Scripture you'd like to share with us as well, please do! Or maybe even just a photo. All I'm asking is that you take a couple of minutes and let the gratitude well up in your heart and onto your blog! :)

My Answer

I'm really thankful to have a job this year. There are many times I realize just how lucky I am to have a relatively stress free job. It seems like a tough market out there, so I'm going to remain thankful for as long as it lasts!

I'm also just really thankful to have had such an amazing year in the book community. I've been lucky enough to go to BEA, the LA Times Festival of Books and the National Book Festival and all of them were wonderful. I've met so many amazing authors and bloggers in person and online and I can hardly remember the person I was before I knew you. Thanks for always making me think and laugh and here's to another year!

That is wonderful! I have to agree with you - my journey as an author has brought me so many new & wonderful friends.
I'm also praying for all the friends who are losing their jobs due to 200 Waldenbooks closing. I've visited so many of those stores, made such good friends...
