Thankful Book Lovers Blog Hop!

First off, I'd like to say a big thank you to Sabrina Ford for inviting me to participate in this blog hop. 

What am I thankful for?

Lately I've been contemplating all that I have, all the opportunities I've been given, and I really think there isn't anything that I'm not thankful for. I'm thankful for my great family, my wonderful best friend. I'm thankful that I'm able to further my education at a good school. I'm thankful that the grass is green (instead of last years brown) and that it's finally starting to cool off. I'm thankful for all the authors that write the amazing books to read, and that I have money to buy their books. I'm thankful for all the authors, reviewers, and bloggers that I have become friends with since I began reviewing and blogging in June 2011. I'm thankful that I've had the opportunity to meet three of my four amazing authors in person! 

Most of all, I'm thankful to be alive.

Morgan Kearns: I'm very thankful to my Father in Heaven for all the blessings He sees fit to give me every day. I have the best family in the world. I'm grateful for a loving husband and four amazing kids! I love doing what I do and am immensely thankful to everyone who has ever read one of my novels. The love and support I get from my readers is humbling. I'm also grateful to my characters who allow me to tell their stories. I pray they never stop talking to me.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Gracen Miller: I am thankful for so much…for my wonderful husband of 21 years, my children, family and close friends. That my granny is still living to witness the arrival of the fifth generation into our family and that my father-in-law beat leukemia a second time. I’m grateful we’re able to provide for our children. I’m thankful that I’ve been given the ability to weave words together in such a manner that entertains. Each book is a new adventure and I’m blessed to have a wonderful group of readers and friends live them with me. I’m even thankful for the struggles placed in my path because they make me stronger and shape me into the person I am.

AJ Sweeny: This year started with an earth-shaking bang in my life. And just when I thought that there was noting else that was dear to me enough to hold on to or for, a wonderful group of friends proved me wrong. These friends watched over me and comforted me day and night until they felt that I was safe from whatever emotional abyss I was standing next to. These friends gave so much to me even if they were themselves running on almost empty. So this year I am dedicating my biggest thanks to good friends. Good humans, who are caring by nature. Of course I have so much more to be thankful of, like my family and my health, as it could always be worse etc. etc. etc. And of course I am ever thankful that my words can move and carry my readers to a place where they can get a little reprieve from their own daily and sometimes hectic lives. I am always thankful that I live in the United States too- something that I never take for granted.<3

Deena Remiel: There is much to be thankful for in my life. I am thankful for the fortitude I've been blessed with to endure the various hardships that have come my way. I am grateful for the optimistic outlook that keeps me living above the line. I am ever thankful for the health of my family and that we are able to provide for our children. I am blessed with the most wonderful friends and readers, and thank God for them every time I write a word or speak their names.
