Thoughtful About . . . Gee, Take a Guess!

I imagine 99% of blogs today are going to talk about Thanksgiving in some form or another. I toyed with the idea of taking a holiday from blogging, but I'd actually like to sit back and muse about the day. We'll see if anyone reads it, LOL.

This year, I have so much to be thankful for. I have my wonderful family, complete with a husband I'm so in love with, a daughter who amazes me with her insights and entertains me with her 4-yr-old-isms, and a son who's in that oh-so-fun stage where he'll imitate anything, says new words everyday, and just delights me every day.

I'm so blessed to have a critique group full of wonderful women who love me and understand me, including my best friend. I have a fabulous agent who has stood beside me as I toss project after project her way and we wait to see which one will sell. I am thankful for the almost-contract I have on a contemporary, and for the many requests for manuscripts I got at the conference.

I'm especially grateful for the opportunity to work on and re-release A Stray Drop of Blood. This book is so special to me, and I've long wanted to give it its due. Special thanks to WhiteFire Publishing for making the investment in a whole new book. And to Tekeme for designing such an awesome cover. And to my endorsers and influencers who are helping bring it to the public eye.

The Lord has given us a good year; I can't thank him enough for all of it. But I can remember, and I can try to find the words for it, and I can keep looking forward to the future.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Roseanna! Hope you have a great time today with your family and friends! Love reading your blog... Truly we do have so much to be thankful for. As my eight year old cousin said the other day, "There's so much to be thankful for I don't even know where to start!" I'm very thankful that you contacted me too!! ;)
    Love,
