It is a coincidence that The News Girl has been officially released on Thanksgiving Day. One of my New Year’s resolutions will be to write more blog postings and be more active on my website. It’s so easy for me to share quick things on Facebook that I forget I can share anything with you here.
But today is all about gratitude, because it feels good. It’s impossible to feel grateful and be angry at the same time, because those two feelings can’t live together. So, first I’m grateful for my wonderful family in Spain, North Carolina, and California. I’m grateful for those friends who feel like family, and many other awesome friends who are scattered around the globe on different continents. I’m grateful for the ten years, five months and ten days of Chiqui’s beautiful presence in my life. I’m a people person, and that means people always come first. I’m grateful for my job, and the people I work with, including my fun teenage students who drive me crazy sometimes, but who give me a reason to try to be better every day. I’m grateful for my health and for having a home with a cute patio where the hummingbirds come to say hello while other birds bathe in the fountain. I’m grateful for all the yummy meals and good times shared with our amazing friends.
Last, but not least, I’m grateful for having the most supportive hubby in the world, who has helped me go through the loss of our dog—my baby—and has encouraged me and made my life easier so I could write and publish The News Girl. He’s always there when I need a hug, or a coffee . . .
Thank you for being here, for reading this. I’m grateful for YOU.
Have a wonderful day!
