Thankful Thursday

This is a random edition of thankfulness.

I am thankful I had dental insurance in order to have the dental surgery earlier this week.
(I hate hate hate that I needed it but glad I was able to do so.)

I am thankful for my wonderful husband who is excellent at taking care of me when I am under the weather.
(I wish everyone had someone like him in their lives because he is so very nurturing.)

I am REALLY thankful that I only have 5 working days left in a cubicle.
(I can't believe that they are dropping Microsoft Outlook and going backward to Lotus Notes for email.)

I am thankful to smokingtoaster</lj> because she is arranging a goodbye lunch for me at work. It's one of those awkward things because of course my big fear is what if no one wants to come? But if not, smokingtoaster and DB and I will just have a nice lunch on our own.
(The ONLY thing I am going to miss about this job are a few really great people.)

I am thankful that we have had the money to put in our native garden. It's not done and the plants are still small but seeing green stuff beginning to grow is so exciting.

I am thankful that I will be home and be able to tend the garden by hand, water by hand for a while, weed, and just bask in the wonderfulness that is nature.

You make me wish for spring and Christmas hasn't even got her yet. :-) You also made me feel calm just thinking about doing these calming things.

Oh I am glad to hear you calm. If I can't be calm I'm glad someone else is. :-)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
