Blog Critique and Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, my blog is being critiqued by Laura Barnes over on her site, Laura B. Writer: Building Author Media Presence. So please, if you don't mind, steer clear of there.

Okay, okay. Please go check it out. Really. :P

And since it's a big holiday this week here in the States, I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the day, here is my short list of silly and serious thanks (my long list would take too long, but I'm sure you all understand it's there, right?):
  1. That I'm not a turkey.
  2. That my husband puts up with me day in and day out (crazy writer and all)
  3. That my kids still love to give me hugs (and that they brag to their friends that I write books)
  4. That my Savior, Jesus Christ, loved me enough to die for me, so I can repent of my multitude of sins.
What are you thankful for?

P.S. I will be back blogging on Monday, Dec. 5

The first one cracked me up. Yep, that is definitely something to be thankful for.

Have a great time off, Janet!

Awwww I couldn't leave a comment over at Laura's blog. I could see the box but the cursor wouldn't appear in the box and I didn't know where else to go so here I am!

Well I think your blog is just lovely and I love the red background with the cursive writing and I love your pic with Oscar the Grouch - cos he's one of my fave characters in Sesame St LOL! Yay for you!

Happy Thanksgiving! Take care

Enjoy your week, Janet! I'm right behind Stina heading over to the blog critique ...

Slamdunk said...

Amen Janet--God bless you and your family.

On the way over to see now...

Abby Fowers said...

Oooh, a blog critique! So cool!

I am thankful I am NOT a turkey too! I am thankful for health - something I do not have right now. I hate being sick and it reminds me not to take "being healthy" for granted.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

You are so funny, Janet :) But I'm going over to check out your critique anyway! laura did mine a while back and I find her critiques are very helpful and always nice. I'm sure she thought very highly of yours. Happy T-day to you, too :)

Bethany Elizabeth said...

So, your list just broke my heart into happiness, if that's possible. :)

You aren't a turkey?

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Very cool...I'm hoping over in a second. :D

I'm thankful for a lot of things...mostly this year I am thankful my daughter seems to be happy. Moving is always hard, but when you are a teen I think it presents new challenges. After three years, she seems to have found her happy place.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, Janet!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Ha!--I'm happy you're not a turkey, too! It's not a good week to be a turkey.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Victoria Dixon said...

I hope you had a great turkey day, my friend! And yes, I'm grateful both of us are not turkeys. I could be the other variety of turkey, I suppose, but that's a different problem! Will go check out what Laura says. That's an interesting thing to do.

Maeve Frazier said...

I'm thankful that I'm not a turkey, too! Hope you enjoyed your day.

Margo Berendsen said...

He's my savior too, so awesome to see you state it so boldly! I am thankful I am learning to trust Him more.

E.R. King said...

I'm grateful for the Savior, too. We did a Nativity Reading Theater last night at church, and I'm the only one who cried through my part. I love this time of year!

Christina Lee said...

AWWW hope it was a good one!

Connie Arnold said...

Great list of thanks (especially the 4th one)! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Janet!
