It’s the little things…a day in the life of a writer

HJ, I want to thank you..thank you for supporting me, and making me want to be a better person, thank you for the love you freely give, and allowing me to be a part of your life. You always tell people that you couldn’t do all that you do if not for me, but I don’t think you understand that without you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you, thank you for playing the role in my life that you do, for the love you give me on a daily basis, and the warmth you surround me with. Thank you for the home you help me make and share with me our children, grandchild, kittens, and friends. Together we are all family, one which I am forever grateful for.

The true heralding of the season…

Thanksgiving for me also signals the arrival of the Christmas season, and all the craziness that goes along with it! It means that already the boxes of decorations have come out of their hiding place and are ready to be gone through. I KNOW without a doubt that the season has arrived by the fact that yesterday afternoon my wonderful wife had our living-room torn apart and me hauling out the Christmas tree in preparation for Friday, which is decorating day.
