I spent my formative years in North America, so our family always celebrated Thanksgiving in my early years. Here in New Zealand, it’s not a holiday, but I never forget what a special day it is. I always make sure to count my blessings and feel grateful for the life I have. This year one of the blessings is that my first Great Dane, Dolce, turns 9 on Thanksgiving, and that’s a ripe old age for one of these huge dogs. Dolce has not only been my loyal friend and companion, but she’s been the inspiration for—and played a leading role in—my LA Lights books, as Twinkletoes the Great Dane.
I feel gratitude for my wonderful family, great friends, and the lovely readers I’ve found since 2012 when I published my first book. Many of you have now become friends, and correspond with me several times a year. I’m always humbled that in your busy lives, you take time out to contact me. Thank you, and know that I so much appreciate your support and encouragement.Wherever you are at Thanksgiving, whoever you’re with, and whatever you’re doing, I hope you have a fun day and reflect on the gifts in your life. On the subject of gifts, here’s one from me to you. Please click on the image to download it.
With much love at Thanksgiving!di x
