I am thankful I stopped thinking about it and started writing.
I am thankful God gave me the imagination needed to be a children's writer.
I am thankful to have the time to put my thoughts into words.
I am thankful I write a column for children.
I am thankful I had a short story published in an anthology.
I am thankful I belong to a writer's group.
I am thankful to be surrounded by books.
I am thankful to have my writing friends to encourage me each day.
I do not have an agent, I do not have a publisher, and none of my children's stories are published yet, but . . .
I am glad my thankful list is larger than my do not have list, and that brings a smile to my face.
