Giving Thanks

th-1Happy November! With Thanksgiving around the corner, I wanted to take today to say Thank You. Thank you to my Magical Musings sisters for inspiring me and motivating me and having me as part of their family.

Thank you to all my author pals for their friendship and their books. Reading has become such a vital part of my life (confession – I was never much of a reader until I started writing) and I’m so grateful for all the wonderful novels I’ve read. I have to give a shout out to the book I just finished because it was so, so great. I absolutely loved it. If you like NA, I highly recommend This Is Falling by Ginger Scott. I don’t know Ginger, but I’m now a huge fan and plan to read all her books.

Thank you to my readers. It’s still crazy for me to think I have readers that aren’t related to me. But you’re all part of my family now and I’m so blessed to have you on this journey with me. *hugs!*

Thank you to Wendy, Stacy and Holly, my amazing editors. Thank you to Liz, Melanie, Debbie, Alycia, Adrien, and the entire gang at Entangled for making my dream of being published a reality. Thanks to all my day job peeps, too.

And thank you to my hubby, sons, and mom for being the wind beneath my wings.

Last week was a tough one for me, but thinking about all I have to be thankful for, I’m reminded to stay focused on the positive and the people who really matter. I also remember how much a smile and a laugh can go a long way to feeling good. So here are a few Turkey Day jokes that I hope bring a smile to your face. I maybe laughed out loud at a couple of them. I’m an easy mark.

Who’s not hungry at Thanksgiving?
The turkey because he’s already stuffed!

What sound does turkey’s phone make?
Wing! Wing!

What do you call it when you drop a turkey from a helicopter?
Dead weight.

Can a turkey jump higher than the Empire State Building?
Yes – a building can’t jump at all.

How can you make a turkey float?
You need 2 scoops of ice cream, some root beer, and a turkey.

Lastly, I want to say Happy Veterans Day and give my heartfelt thanks to the men and women who have served our country in the Armed Forces. Thank you!


I’d love to know what you’re thankful for. (It’s totally okay to say cookies. I forgot to mention that.)

    Robin, what a wonderful post! Love the cat pic and thanks for the Thanksgiving reminder. 🙂 I give thanks for my friends and for my health. I have a lot to be thankful for this year. And since I’m writing a book with veterans, I definitely agree on everything you said.

    I am thankful for my wonderful family that put up me. I am thankful to my wonderful boys (dogs), they bring so much joy into our lives. They show unconditional love! A final thank you to all the wonderful authors that have brought such great stories to my kindle. Plus the friendships that I have gained from meeting the authors at conferences and thru Facebook, brings so much enjoyment to my life.

    • Shari, I’m pretty sure I speak for all of us authors when I say you bring much enjoyment to our lives, too! And oh, gosh! I forget to mention how thankful I am for my little Harry. He really is the best dog ever and you’re right. The unconditional love dogs show us make even the yuckiest days much, much better.
