Hi and welcome to Friday Fun Facts! Come play along and learn something new about me, and I’ll learn something new about you.
Each Friday I will post a question (something fun, maybe a bit quirky, it’s Friday after all) and include my answer. You can join the fun and post your own answer by clicking the comment button below!
Since we’re in the midst of November…Turkey Month, I have continued to gear my questions and comments with the Thanksgiving theme! YUM!
Every year about this time family and friends are in the middle of making traveling plans, organizing menus and looking forward to spending time relaxing with those special to them.
To me Thanksgiving isn’t just about spending time with family and friends…football (if that’s your thing), food, laughs, maybe a day off from work and a nap after dinner if you’re lucky…lol…but a time of reflection.
A time to look back over the last 12 months…good or bad.
Even if you’ve had a rough year and have had more down times than up, I truly believe everyone has had something special happen in their lives in the last twelve months. An event to celebrate…either professionally or personally, maybe a new friendship, an addition to the family, a chance to change careers or advance in a current one….oh there are so many possibilities!
For me, top priority is always that I’m thankful for my friends and family, their health and mine and for all that we have. But I have another more selfish thing to be thankful for…
I’m thankful for all the new friends I’ve met from following a path that I’ve wanted to take for years. Ever since I was small I wrote, as I grew I won some awards and always had the thought that someday I’d like to write a book. A romance book preferably. But life gets busy and dreams get pushed aside. After awhile and a few more conversations beginning with “I wish I could…” my sister nudged me along and suggested that I should ‘go for it’. So I am! And I’m thankful for the opportunity, but…
On my journey I’ve met some wonderful people and have made some amazing friendships…all over the internet basically.
So, to all of you wonderful people that I have met along the way. That I’ve laughed with, and those that have helped me laugh at myself. To the special people that have encouraged me when I’ve wanted to give up. To my wonderful cp’s, the other authors I’ve met through various avenues of social media and all the readers who’ve taken the time to share with all the writers out there their thoughts and comments about their work…I just want to say—
I can’t express how thankful I am to have met each and every one of you. My hope is that as we all continue to learn, grow and travel on our writing journey, that we also continue to support and help each other. This is an awesome community.
Okay, so I know this was a bit more serious than my normal FFF, but I just had to thank all of you and this is the perfect month to do it.
Which brings me to….Drum roll please! Today’s Friday Fun Facts question…
As mentioned above we are all thankful for those ‘normal’ things like family, friends everyone’s health…but what is something else in your life that you’re thankful for? Big or small, selfish or not…old or new…
Can’t wait to hear your comments!
