What I’m Thankful For

Johnny Depp. ‘Nuff said.

I also refer you to this story, the link to which lives on my Free Reads page:

The Cautionary Tale of Silas Rockport
Written in response to Paul Molyneux’s (editor of Laughter Loaf) remark, “It’s hard to commercialize a holiday based on gratitude and humility.”

WRITING PROMPT: For what is your main character thankful all the time? On one particular day of the year?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Christine is grateful for coffee, all the time. And her job. She doesn’t mention that enough, but then, she doesn’t mention any of her “gratitude list” enough. Too caught up in surface-y type things.

    Deb is grateful for her skates. Skating is her life.

      Thanks for visiting today, sweetie! And I am SO NOT a vegetarian on Thanksgiving! 😉

    Happy Thanksygiving Day!

    We made ham and had a person over. Just like a holiday!

    I am grateful for coffee and chocolate. And ganache. And friends, for sure.

      Sometimes the smaller gatherings are nicer. We were lucky–the traffic was smooth and moving. Yeah, coffee and chocolate and ganache and espresso and mocha … how many ways can I say “coffee and chocolate”? Never enough times to be bored. 😉 And, yes, ALWAYS friends. 🙂
