Tuesday Tales

 

This week in honor of Thanksgiving I’m doing something a little different. The following isn’t from Red Queen who will be back next week for its final scene.

What I’m thankful for

Each of us, in our own ways, has something to be thankful for. It can be good health, a loving family, even a job you love going to everyday.

For me it the last one. Every day I go to a job that to me really isn’t a work but a passion.

Even more importantly than writing I am thankful for a roof over my head.

You are all aware, back in September I loaded up my little car and moved from Connecticut to Texas. What you didn’t know, I didn’t have a place to live when I got here.

I knew what I wanted and didn’t want.

Thanks to a dear friend here in Texas we were able to find the perfect place for me to live. Hell, I’d have even settled for a pop-up camper.

What I got was a ten by ten room in a boarding house. It’s not the best or worst but it is warm and dry.

I’m also thankful for being associated with two of the best ePublishers in the world.

I’m thankful for the best group of friends anyone can imagine. Not only here in Tuesday Tales but also on Facebook.

Okay, okay I’m also thankful for my health.

And last but not least I’m thankful for the ability to take a picture or a word and each week tell a story. Of course the word prompts have developed into two different stories and as I said about next week will be the last for Red Queen. The following week I’ll be starting the story titled, White Queen.

    Thanks for sharing.

  10. Thank you for reminding us of the meaning of the holiday. You’re a brave woman to pack up and head west. I have family that moved to Oklahoma in the ’80’s. It was a cultural shock for them, but they’ve done well. Wishing you the best. I enjoy your posts. Happy Thanksgiving!
