For me, the Thanksgiving week is not only filled with the hustle and bustle of dinner preparations, which takes us two days to prepare, but to also reflect on my many, many blessings.
First and foremost, my family. I wished every one of you could meet them. If you stopped in for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, you just might! I can’t remember a single year our house wasn’t filled to capacity with family and friends. With my mother being one of nine children and my dad one of four, I have more cousins than I care to count. All throughout my youth a goodly portion of them always showed up for dinner at our house.
As it always does, time marched on, my childhood faded away, and adulthood took over…

I have four siblings, and together the five of us have produced twenty-four grandchildren for my beloved parents. In turn–so far–those grandchildren have blessed them with forty-three great-children, one more on the way, and two more sweet little girls we are hoping to add to our family through adoption. Great-great grandchildren? They have two so far…. If you do the math, all of our family gatherings are a party waiting to happen, and Thanksgiving is no exception. Hence the reason it takes us two days to prepare a dinner that feeds so many!
Just one more thing, though… In gratitude to all of my wonderful readers, I am offering a free ebook copy of Van Locken’s Witch from Amazon. This offer is good today and through Sunday, November 30th, 2014, so don’t delay! This is the prequel to Shadow of the Witte Wieven and therefore, the perfect gift to give you during my Shadow of the Witte Wieven book tour and giveaway. Today you will find me answering questions at Our Wolves Den, so if you have a minute, I would love it if you would drop by and say hello! While you’re there, don’t forget to enter our giveaway!
