Happy Thanksgiving!

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.  ~Psalm 100:4 NIV

Dora here. On this Thanksgiving Thursday, my laptop sits idle on my desk, my office even more quiet than usual. Not a word will make it into my wip. My fingertips won’t dance across the keyboard.

But that's okay.  

Because once again our house is bursting with family. It's loud with excited chatter and laughter, bubbling over with joy, little boy hugs, and more food than our family could possibly consume. We’re skirting make-shift beds on the floors and getting tangled in electronic cords and groaning over an endless cycle of dirty dishes.

But that's okay.

Because as much as I savor the solitude of my early mornings and the tranquility of my writing routine, this moment is something that will never come again. Time is fleeting and precious, and not one of us is promised tomorrow. This journey is meant to be shared with our loved ones, family, and friends.

And that’s where you come in.

We cherish you, dear readers. Thank you for traveling this writing journey with us. For faithfully stopping by to read our posts, for brightening our days with your comments, and for sharing us with your friends.


Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving!
What about you? Will you find a quiet spot to squeeze in writing time today?

    No writing for me today. I'm soon heading out the door with food in hand to join extended family for the day.
