Feeling Grateful

I try to practice being grateful every day, but it’s important to put it into words sometimes. Today, these are some of the things I’m grateful for.

  • An extended family, most of whom live close by. They’re my best friends, (and I don’t have to travel on holidays).
  • A part-time job and 2 steady freelance clients. No immediate money worries.
  • The life circumstances that allow me write novels. Because telling stories makes me happier than anything else I do.
  • Clean running water, central heat, and plenty of food. It’s too easy to forget that these basics are privileges and not everyone has them.
  • Good health. (Genetic luck of the draw)
  • Heroes: Police officers, firefighters, military personnel, and medical aid workers who are willing to risk their own lives for others, including me.
  • A husband who makes me laugh (and occasionally sings to me)
  • A small pool in which to exercise everyday (without injuring myself)
  • Dozens of wonderful friends both in person and online. (They make such a huge difference in the quality of my life.)
  • TIVO (Without it, I could never watch television.)

What are you grateful for at this point in your life?

Five-Time Readers Favorite Award Winner!


I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were compelling, the procedural work was dead-on, and the story was enthralling. Definitely recommended.”
~Michelle Gagnon, author of Boneyard
The author expertly intertwines multiple story lines, presents readers with fully realized characters that readers will feel they know, and keeps the action and suspense levels high. That’s a lot to expect from an author but L. J. Sellers delivers.” ~OverMyDeadBody
