Honored To Be Giving Thanks

For the past several years, my friend Julie Arduini, has turned her blog over to her readers in November.

The reason is two fold, she gets a chance to share others stories of thankfulness AND she can focus on completing her NaNoWriMo project for the year.

I always look forward to reading the posts she has selected, as I enjoy seeing what others are thankful for.  Every year, I think, "I should really submit my story...", but I never seem to do so.

That changed this year.

Once the call went out for submissions in September, I carved out a small window to sit down and write why I was thankful.  After writing it, editing, and re-reading it numerous times...I finally got the guts up to hit the send button on the email.

I thought I was going to puke.

Within a few hours, I had an email back from Julie, thanking me for my story.

I am honored to have been selected to be 1 of 30 people giving thanks publicly on her blog this month.

My post is being featured today, and I'd love for you to check it out!  You'll find it here.
