Cheesy Thanksgiving Post -- List of things for which I am thankful

In the spirit of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I decided to post a list of things I am thankful for -- because apparently, I am this corny. Sorry. The holiday season has a tendency to make me a little sentimental.

Note: these are in no particular order. Just as they come to me.

1) My readers. You make this job fun. Thank you.
2) My crit partners. Not only for their support in writing, but in life in general. I know I can call JA Saare if I need to vent or send something goofy to Sarah Ballance or talk about edits with Kacey Hammell or grumble with Madelyn Ford about anything in particular. They're more than crit partners; they're friends. Thank you.
3) My wonderful Aaron, who provides nothing but love, support, encouragement, and praise.
4) Nikki London for being my BFF of 10+ years, my sister, my employer, and my #1 fan. There is so much I couldn't have accomplished without you.
5) Skyla Dawn Cameron, and she knows why.
6) Positive reviews, for making my bad days better and my good days amazing.
7) Negative reviews, for keeping me grounded.
8) The good health of all my loved ones.
9) My editors.
10) The people I have met and continue to meet who make me endlessly grateful to be a part of this community.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who observe it.

The Holidays hit ya in the heart hard sometimes. But it's all for the good. :) Wonderful list and some amazing people showing up here too. :)

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family. *hugs*

It's been great finding you and chatting with you. I look forward to many more years of fun chats to come. :)

Take care and try to not get to stressed, relax. :)

Aww, thanks, Melissa! It's been a blast chatting with you, as well. You're an absolute delight -- always friendly and supportive. It means the world to me, and I'm guessing to a great number of others.

I hope your Thanksgiving is a good one. Get some R&R yourself. Work can wait a couple days, right? ;)

Rosalie, you are without a doubt my best friend in the world and I am grateful for you every single day of my life. You are not only my friend-you are my hetero-life-mate.

P.S. You are one of the single greatest authors I have ever read. You are the sole inspiration for my desire to be published. Thank you!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Rosalie, you are a constant in my life. Always supportive with my writing but we can also discuss anything. Your writing inspires me, YOU inspire me and have taught me to take it one story at a time, let the words flow and not to rush what I can't always control. You've taught me more than you could possibly know.

I thank you...for you.
