Happy Thanksgiving!

I am taking a moment as I prepare a Thanksgiving meal for six to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. It is truly a time for giving thanks for all that we have. Being of sound mind and body is something I often take for granted, and having a day of the year for giving special thanks makes me stop and think what a blessing this is.

Thanksgiving can also bring out the stresses in families and relationships. We are experiencing that this year, so my prayer is for healing in these relationships.

I wanted to let you know that there is a holiday sale (40% off) going on at Michigan State University Press for Why I Left the Amish until December 22. And there is also one going on (30% off) at Herald Press for Bonnet Strings: An Amish Women's Ties to Two Worlds until December 25. These sales exist through their online stores only.

I received a heartwarming package in the mail this week from a reader who is giving my books as gifts. This is a repeat order, and along with it she sent me cards she had made with a quote from Why I Left the Amish about forgiveness. This package reminded me of why I wrote my story. It is so gratifying to see to what degree this person has identified with it. Paula, if you read this, know that read your beautiful card with a grateful heart.

As always, I am thankful for such loyal readers. If at times I neglect this blog, know that I will be back. My life is full right now, but I enjoy the exchanges here.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Please share what you're doing for the holiday, and if you feel like it what you are particularly thankful for this season.
