Well, here we are, the day before Thanksgiving. We made it. There is so much to be thankful and grateful for, wouldn't you agree? Family, friends, life, and health. The fact that I have the ability to blog at all means my life is in a pretty good place. There isn't a day in my life that I don't fully recognize that blogging is a luxury - an indulgence - and I'm grateful for it. Grateful also that all of you stop by to read and support it. That's the icing. Thank you for being the icing to my cake.
Something else I'm grateful for? Good books. I just finished reading The End of My Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe*, and I have to say that it was one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's about the passion a mother and son share for reading while the mother is fighting pancreatic cancer. It's also a book about books and how books can touch - even change - your life. I now have an entire list of books I want to read, immediately. (Elegance of the Hedgehog and Suite Francaise,** to name a few.)
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
Now take that feeling and have yourself a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm signing off for the week and will see you back here on Monday. Cheers, my friends!

*Erin, thank you again for the recommendation.**Update: I remember you highly recommended Suite Francaise, Erin. So, I was tickled when they mentioned it in The End of Your Life Book Club, which I think you would really love, by the way. [wink]
