Thankful

Down Under we don't have Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean we're not aware of what we do have to be thankful for

I guess, in today's world, one of the top things is our freedom, to be able to worship as we want and walk the streets in relative safety. So saying, I'm thankful for those who fight for our freedom.

I'm thankful for my faith - in God I trust.

I'm thankful for my home, my Mum, my animals and my friends. They make my life so much brighter.

I'm thankful for the happy memories of loved ones who have passed on. I know I'll see them again one day, both animals and humans, and meanwhile I laugh about all the things we shared, and smile at the whimsical side of memories.

I'm thankful that I can read, write and work. Life is inspiring.

And even though my Mum thinks I'm nuts, I'm thankful for the zombie, ghost and ghoulie movies that make me laugh and shiver so much! Horror is good - on the screen and on pages. I don't actually want to ever meet a zombie!

I'm thankful to all those writers out there who provide me with hours of entertainment in far off places. It's an adventure from the safety of my home.

And I'm especially thankful to all those readers who read what we authors write. Without you all, we authors would be in limbo!

So to my US friends, happy Thanksgiving. To those of us who don't do Thanksgiving in our own countries - have a wonderful day anyway, and remember all the good things we have!

And pray for those who struggle or are finding times hard. May they find a light at the end of the tunnel.

cheers
Angela

[Life is inspiring.]
This is so true! Sometimes it seems so weird, sometimes so lame, but all in all its a crazy ride during the haul.

Ditto me on the zombie! And on the "upper" of having fans/readers :0)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Down Under style :0)
