#SixteensBlogAbout: Gratitude

Each and every day, I have many things to be grateful for. This week, I wanted to share seven days of gratitude.

On Saturday I was grateful for… my husband. I had a whole bunch of proofreading to do last weekend and he basically told me to take all the time I needed to get it done. He looked after the kids and the meals and kept everything sane around me.

On Sunday I was grateful for… my editor, who asked me to elaborate on a scene that made me see something in another scene, which I changed, just in time.

On Monday I was grateful for… my beta readers, since I was cleaning out my inbox and came across a couple of really nice, encouraging emails that reminded me how much I appreciate what they do.

On Tuesday I was grateful for… my laptop, which lets me get writing done on the train to work, without which I would never find the time.

On Wednesday I was grateful for… my family, who have been so patient with me about responding to all sorts of things lately.

On Thursday I was grateful for… quiet moments, the kind where I can stop and take a moment to assess my priorities.

On Friday I was grateful for… my children and all their enthusiasm and joy that reminds me to appreciate the little things and to wonder at the beauty in the world.
