Readers Being Thankful!

As the US Holiday of Thanksgiving nears it's a good time to remind ourselves of what we are thankful for.

In October when I released Blessings and Beans, Book 12 of The Celebration Series that center's around Thanksgiving, I sent out a newsletter to my readers and they had the chance to enter to win two prizes by telling me what they were thankful for. 

Before I start sharing what they gave me permission to share, I wanted to give a quick shout out to the winners of the giveaway and share what they are thankful for.  

The Winner of the Coffee Clock: Aisha L.

I’m thankful for my mom because she thinks daily that I don’t appreciate her but I love and appreciate her more than anything. My mom is there no matter what happens to me in life. Every surgery, every time I’ve almost died, and every achievement. I don’t know what I would do without her and I will be sad the day I must say goodbye to her.

The Winner of the Thankful Mug: Joy C.

Being able to walk today - I have MS and a few years back I was watching television went to stand up and found myself on the floor , I spent a year relearning to walk without normal sensation and the other fun stuff that comes with nerve damage - now I am wobbly on some days but kicking @ss on others -I can drive again , can't run but can Zumba - not perfectly don't judge ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I am thankful I am stubborn - never believe there is anything you can't accomplish -
