I’m taking the day off from blogging today to sit around the Thanksgiving table with my family. I’m stowing away the laptop and focusing on the real world for a change, giving my characters a day off too. I intend to be mindful of the simple things that give my life meaning, making sure to tell everyone around my table how much they mean to me.
So take a minute to reflect on this special day in our American calendar and enjoy its traditions, a day where we pause and give thanks, and hopefully manage to stay out of the stores. Shopping for those holiday presents can wait another day or two.
