Girls Write Out
Tuesday, October 13, 2009

I went to Nashville to visit Thomas Nelson on Thursday through Saturday. What a fabulous time! They always make me feel I can conquer the world after a visit with them. On Thursday we had our strategy meeting about upcoming books. I've got some fun stuff coming up for you!

As I made my rounds chatting to my friends there, I realized again something so important. Too often we don't express our gratitude to people who make a difference in our lives. Several folks mentioned they love to hear from me because I'm so grateful for what they do: the foreign rights person, the licensing folks, the phone sales people, the list of people who work hard for very little thanks goes on and on. But my books wouldn't be selling if it weren't for them! They do SO much for their authors and it's time we did something for them. So I hear by declare today a "THANK YOU DAY." Find someone to thank today. The checkout person at the grocery store. The daycare worker who does such a great job with your child. The guy who washes your car.

Tell me who you're going to target today and why. Or report back and tell me who you found to thank that you wouldn't normally notice. Don't just plan to do it, DO IT!

Okay, let's see, my friend who makes prayer pillows and sends them around the world, not only to our soldiers overseas, but to the homeless, and invests a great deal of her own money in the ministry.

My family doc, who doesn't carry my latest health insurance, so a lot of times he just sees me for free. Gave me a flu shot a couple of weeks ago when I went with my mother for her appointment. Free.

My friend, Kris, who sent me a computer tower--free--to help me prepare for my high speed many to thank. So many to be thankful for.

Great pics, Colleen!

Just last night Tony and I started "Five things we're thankful for today."

We want to recount them every evening.

So far today I'm thankful for:

Apple's good customer service.
Discovering what's wrong with my iPhone.
Getting my book start fixed in my head.
The peace of Jesus.
And friends!

Well, since it's almost 2 a.m., I will start by thanking all of you here who have written books I love and enjoy. I can't tell you how blessed I have felt when I found your blog! What a treat to interact with some of my favorite authors.

I am thankful that after 6 days and 7 hours on the phone, my laptop is again, working. However, I had to 'wipe' everything out and lost all my files -- including the ones with all my passwords listed! LOL

Yes, I did back it up before they had me clear it, but I haven't figured out how to 'put everything back'.

I see a few hours on the phone tomorrow in my future.
