This week, my back gave out.
I’ve been putting in 18-hour days for a while, except for a few days in between, so my back just up and left.
This has meant a week of lying down.
Only once my health packed up did I remember I’m not supposed to take it for granted. Each night I thank the universe for its blessings, and today that I’m feeling better, I know I should be more thankful than ever. This year I’ve worked very hard, producing about 500k words in fiction and other writing. Not all those words are published, but I’m happy having written all of them.
So in the season of Thanksgiving, here’s mine. I’m thankful for my health, my family, my writing, and for you, my blog friends. You’ve supported me more than you know.
How about you? What are you thankful for? Do you take your health for granted sometimes? How has your life, reading, writing been this year?
