As I looked back through my drafts (usually tidbits from the Universe that I’ve tucked back for eventual use), this one popped out at me. I have a lot to say thanks for–the new roof that will be over my head by the end of this week. A group of loyal fans, friends, and readers (who helped me PAY for that roof by buying my books). A family that believes in and responds to “All for one and one for all!” A Muse who runs with scissors.
Two of the most powerful words in the English language for bringing about change, Silver, are “thank you.” Especially when offered before the change even occurs and everything still looks pretty much like it did yesterday.
You’ll have to think of something to say afterwards on your own.
Hubba, hubba –
Thank you, Silver.
So thank you, Universe and friends. Here’s to change! Hubba, hubba. 😉
What are you thankful for today?
We say ‘thank you’ all the time around here. For instance, Hubs thanks me for making coffee; I thank him for making the bed. (Or vice versa, depending on the day.) We were talking about this the other day, in fact. I think more marriages would be healthier if people said ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ for the little things.
So, thank you, Silver. For the books you write. For this blog where I can hang out with friends. For being one of those friends. =o) And thank you, Universe, for having a place like the internet so I can be a hermit without being a recluse.
Thank you for coming every day, B.E. For being a friend and for being one of those voices who keeps me in my chair every day. And yes, thank you, Universe, for the internet! 😀
*lifting my glass – or rather cup of OJ* Here’s to change !
We say thanks around here all the time too, in fact, before my girls go to bed we always start our prayers by saying what are thankful for that day. I think it helps put things in perspective. Sure one of them got a bad grade or the other lost the softball game but those are small things really and there is SOOOOO much more to be thankful for. Too many people don’t appreciate all the good, everyday things in their lives and so they end up being bitter over what they don’t have … my 2 cents.
I too am thankful for the internet, I don’t have nearby friends so I’d probably be a recluse as well if it weren’t for this amazing device! I have ‘met’ so many wonderful people, including you and learned so many incredible things 😀
*lifts coffee mug* Right back, atcha! I think so many of us feel isolate by location or circumstances, and the net gives us the chance to create a community/ I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of you in person. I have hopes I’ll eventually get to meet you all. Yes, I count each of you as my friends. And that’s a blessing beyond measure, so another thanks goes up! 🙂
Thank YOU, Silver for all you do. 🙂
I’m thankful for family, friends and readers who offer their support in a myriad of ways.
Thank you! For writing a wonderful series that makes me laugh and commiserate with Maggie. And thanks to B.E. for “introducing” us. 😀
I’m thankful for a job that I love that keeps me in books. Thankful for my friends and family that I know are always there for me. I’m super thankful for writers that keep me in new books and book friends who are always there to suggest new books. Over the weekend at RAGT went to bed talking books with friends and literally picked right back up as soon as we woke up in the morning.
I LOVE discussions like those, Liza! Book people are some of the best. 🙂
