Thanksgiving 2012

With Thanksgiving approaching, I decided to revisit my post of a year ago to see where I was and where I am now.

I am thankful for all the 'traditional' things; family, great friends, my health, my job, my dog and cat.

I am deeply grateful to Mother Earth for all She has provided, and to the Universe for the gifts given and lessons taught.

I am still thankful for what I said then. I am grateful for the pain of the divorce, the pain of the Man I Met, the disappointment from the User, for all of these have allowed me to grow and see the strength that I actually have.

I am also thankful for the place where I am for I am further along on my path to me. I have a better rate on my mortgage, so finances will improve. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel growing larger. I am thankful for the financial difficulties for I have learned to do with less. And now that I am a little more comfortable, I don't need to buy what I don't need. I have what I need and I need what I have. Except for a guest bed. But that will come later. And maybe once in a while, I can treat myself to something nice.

I am also thankful for, and overwhelmed by, the success of my novel, Out of the Past. And very thankful for those who have read it and reviewed it.

I am thankful for the sore muscles I have for I have taken back the room in my house, MY HOUSE, that my ex used as his office.
He never finished the room.
I always hated these colors, but the theme was 'fire.' He loved  them!

The color is a smoky gray in keeping with the 'fire'  theme.
I did keep his drapes. Ironically they went with the accent colors I chose.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!


  1. Nice work :-) might I add, you're a very handsome man.

  2. Jeff, your hardwork has paid off in many, many ways. The room is coyjus!

    1. Thank you, I'll post one more picture when it is finished! I must also thank my friend who came down to help me.
