I Am Thankful For Crocks®, Diet Mountain Dew® and Chapstick®


It seems, when you ask most people what they are thankful for their responses include freedom, faith, friends, and family. Well, thankful for your family except for that one crazy relative we all seem to have. Sorry if that’s you.

Anyway, for Thanksgiving I thought I would randomly ask people what they are thankful for. My stipulations included, it can’t be one of the answers from above and had to be something you would have a hard time living without.

Crocs® (shoes)
Diet Mountain Dew®
Coffee
Chocolate
Wine
Football
Hugs
Quiet
Cell phone
Music
Running Water
Tears that can express joy as well as sadness
Chapstick®
E-mail
Warm Fuzzy Blankets
Computer
The Past, good and bad
Eyeglasses
The gift of sight, hearing, and being able to speak


Next time you are feeling sad or down on your luck, look around and be thankful for all the little blessings that surround you everyday.

In Action Thriller, Bolt Action by Victoria Roder, Detective Leslie Bolt is a smart talking, gun hording, Harley riding investigator forced to work a serial murder case with her sexy ex-lover. After a childhood of abuse suffered at the hand of her father, Leslie sleeps with a Ruger Blackhawk .357 under her pillow, has a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker rifle in her broom closet, and a Saturday Night Special stashed in her road-hog cookie jar. The body count mounts and Detective Bolt must conquer her own past, as she races to capture “The State Quarter Killer” before her sister is the next victim. Secrets of the past, murder, deception, sexual tension, and the “State Quarter Killer”; Bolt Action offers it all.

I try to take a few minutes at the end of the day to run through my "gratitude list".

Amazing how much finds its way on there. Really gets things back in perspective on the tough days.
