Gratefulness for Friends

Today’s post is a simple one – of gratitude, hope and faith, and evolution.

Friends, be they few or countless, are to cherish and respect.  Be it one or many, be grateful for their support, strength, camaraderie  . . . their tears, frustration, anger.  You know those that are true: they stand beside you through thick and thin.  They offer advice [and reprimands] when you’re uncertain, down, or waffling.  They cheer you on when you’re not certain you can make the last mile—and they wait at that finish line with a smile and a hug.

Friend: a person we know, like and trust. 

Friend: an individual we’re united with in a contest or combat or cause. 

Friend: someone who encourages and commiserates. 

Friend: somebody who puts up with your tear-crammed calls at any time of the day or night

Friend: a selfless soul who stands by your side (props you up) no matter what

Friend: J-o-a-n-i-e.  

Gratitude is something I don’t give enough of, maybe because I’m so absorbed in the 9-to-5 and mom-care—when not writing or editing—that I have no time to think about anything outside the box I’ve become welded in.

We may, time to time, feel lonely, but let’s not forget that we’re not alone. 

Today, I say thank you to all my friends and followers—for being there, for being you. 

Stay strong!

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
