Every year is fraught with struggles, and yet we go on. I'm sure I could come up many nuggets of encouragement to keep us going through the difficult times, but my favorite is "Rainbows come after the rain."
Time claims its due and we lose people we love, but God has blessed us with people who share our loss and the strength to continue on our journeys. New lives are added in the form of babies or friends. I am thankful for each of these things. For lives well lived, for family to help us carry on, for new lives added. These blessings are gold.

As an author, I'm thankful for those readers who keep me going, who encourage me with their kind reviews when they relate to my words and stories. This year I'm thankful for audiobook narrators who bring my words to life (Epitaph will be available in January!).
