Thankful Thursday

"I feel so fortunate. I want to tell other people, `Don`t give up. Miracles do happen." Elizabeth Smart

Stuff happens......good stuff.....also bad. But no matter up is never an option. This week grateful for;

-My 3rd book,Twisted Innocence soon to be released. Can't believe I'm almost near the end of this thing. It's been more than a year and the journey to write this has been wild.....and at first discouraging......but then huge miracles one after another started happening. It's been a wild quest for truth and I learned along the way.....truth always trumps lies. I am still in awe!!!!!
-The whole week has been meetups with writer friends. Their slant on things always inspires me. I love being with creative people. 
-family....they just make life so much better.....their presence...their support....that they know me...what makes me tick....and that they love me just as I am.
-best buds.....some people step into my life and are there forever. Sometimes life gets busy and we don't see each other for a bit..... then BOOM, we're together as before again.
-Community......I love where I live....I love the people in my neighbourhood....I've met so many kind people who are involved in reaching out and making a difference for others. 
-Mostly.....that we all have a purpose for being.....Someone once told me everybody needs two things to live happy. We all need to know we're loved and we all need to know we have purpose. He gives me both. 

Happy Thursday, Guys. I love that you're all part of my world too. Linking with Spiritual Sundays
