Midweek Mixer

Wednesdays feature quotes and phrases that make me heady because we all need a boost to get us to the weekend.

Tomorrow many people will be celebrating Thanksgiving. This holiday isn't just an American/Canadian thing anymore. It's spreading and I think that's not just because of the delicious feast. I think it has a lot to do with the importance of gratitude in our lives.

I have so many blessings in my life, it would be impossible to count them all. Though I do believe it's important that I mention how thankful I am for you. I consider my readers to be friends. This isn't about networking for me. There are times when I honestly wonder if publishing is for me. I don't have the answer to that, but I don't intend to stop blogging, either, because of all of you. Your support and friendship is astounding. For this reason, I chose a quote from the incredible book "The Last Lecture." I hope you  enjoy it!

  3. I agree about blogging being about friendships over networking. Bu why not have both? Your friends want to support you in your writing, so you get the added bonus of the networking side because of their love for you. It's wonderful!
