There are so many, every day! From health and love and companionship to the chance to see horses almost every day on my way to work. My work itself is a blessing, as is everything that and everyone who makes it possible. So today, my gratitude and love--
To every person who has ever purchased from Dog Ears books, in person or by mail.
To every author who has appeared in my bookstore over the years, in all its different locations, to do a reading and to sign books.
To my regular bookstore customers--bless your hearts!
To all readers of my blog, regular or casual, whether you ever comment or not.
To friends and blog readers who have read my short stories, whether or not I even know who you are.
To those who gave me comments on stories, either on the blog or by e-mail or in person, for going the extra mile.
To everyone who shops regularly in Northport and who contributes in any way to the vitality of our village. That's a lot of people!
This is only a very partial list. I will be counting my blessings on a regular basis from now on—not here on the blog, in public, all the time, but to myself, for sure. Every day. My life is very blessed, and I don’t want to forget it. And I want you all to know how much I appreciate YOU!
