Today we're talking about what we're thankful for.
This has been a year full of ups and downs. Sometimes it's hard to remember that there are things to be thankful for, especially when loved ones have been lost, and others suffering or worrying through health issues, financial issues, and the like.
That is where I feel thankful, though. I've been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of others when they were needed. I've seen friends come to the aid of others, myself included, when they were in need. This is what life is all about. Friendship and Family. The building blocks that hold us together. My sisterhood of friends is a pretty spectacular one and I love them all with all my heart.
I'm personally incredibly lucky to have met new friends this year that have become priceless in my heart. The support and encouragement, the sisterhood and the love. I'm thankful to add more treasures to my collection of friends.
I'm also thankful to have a job, albeit not one I particularly love, but it pays my bills, feeds my family, and provides stability to my family. Two years ago we didn't have these these things, so this is a HUGE blessing.
This past year has also marked my leap into the land of published fiction, and I'm incredibly thankful to all my friends and contemporaries for the help I've had along the way. Checking this off my bucket list is a big deal for me, and I'm thankful to every reader, blog, author and friend that has taken these steps with me.
And of course, I'm thankful that my family is close and even though my mom continues to struggle health wise, she has us to help her. I'm thankful for my cats to cuddle, that my dog is still healthy enough to bring me his dish when I come home from work every day, and that no matter how jacked up your hair cut is, hair grows back.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Enjoy your family, food, friends and furry creatures!

Emily Portman loves her job. A writer for Breakout! Magazine, she shadows and showcases up-and-coming bands. When her next assignment takes her to Austin, Texas, she can’t wait to add the city to her map of places she’s visited. Places she’s left without looking back. Her plan is to keep moving on, and the last thing she needs is a man holding her back. She’s not going down that road again. Tyler Macy is stuck in a rut. Despite his exceptional talent as a musician, he has chosen to take a backseat with his music and let others grab the limelight. Wounded and mistrustful, he doesn’t appreciate his friends’ efforts to bring him back to center stage. Emily comes onto the scene and sees his full potential, but he fights to stay in the shadows, shutting her out before she can add to the scars another woman gave him. For Tyler to find his music again, he needs to accept the help that Emily and their friends offer. When he discovers that his muse lies underneath Emily’s skin, it is still not enough to keep her from walking away. Neither will admit what they really want until it is too late. Emily is once again thrown in Tyler’s path when she is assigned to join them on tour. Despite the pain in his past, Tyler sees that she is worth it, even if she’s stolen both his heart and peace of mind. In order for them to be together, they both must discover whether the music and their passion are enough to overcome the obstacles that separate them. Maybe finding love is worth the risk.
Amber Johnson has authored several romance novels that focus on music and the way it can touch people’s hearts. She believes that Happily Ever Afters occur every day—despite the obstacles that real life serves up on a regular basis. Always with two rubber bands on her wrist and a song in her head, Amber is a rebel who puts too much creamer in her coffee, which she drinks out of a cup that reads ‘Cocoa.’ A full-time wife and mother with a day job, she writes whenever she can. If she’s not at her desk, with her boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms raised above her head and eyes closed, waiting for the drop.
