I believe in being grateful. I believe that I should stop what I’m doing periodically and feel a surge of gratitude for all that I have and for all that I’ve survived. And, frankly, for the joy of life. Gratitude saved me back when I found it very difficult to even get out of bed, so it’s a lesson I hope never to forget.

In the spirit of being grateful, I want you to know how much I’m grateful for you. I consider the people who comment on my blog to be friends. I may not respond to every comment, but I read every single one. I think of you constantly. You’re my ideal reader. You’re, in the words of social media, my tribe.

Next week I’m going to have a big newsletter drawing and I’ve planned on spending a small fortune in postage to seriously deplete my ever growing supply of books. I’m not kidding, I think they multiply. More than once I’ve gotten a double shipment from Avon and I just sigh. They are so generous and say, “Keep them,” and I think to myself, “Where?”

So, y’all, to say thank you I’m doing a special blog only drawing. Just put your name in the comments along with which book you want and I’ll draw names this weekend.

Here’s a list of the available books (if you’re a winner and I’ve run out of your choice of book I’ll offer you a second choice.)

Notice that I haven’t said how many winners there will be? (Cue evil laugh.) I’ll let you know later.
