Happy Thanksgiving!

My husband Charles and I wish you and your family a joy-filled Thanksgiving Day and holiday weekend. We all have so much to be grateful for. I look forward to a leisurely time with children, grandchildren, siblings and friends, enjoying good food, warm conversation, entertainment, and relaxation. It's a time to cut back, cut down, and be cozy!

Beautiful Morro Bay

My husband and I had a terrific 'learning vacation' at Morro Bay last weekend, focusing on the work involved in a class called 'A Time For Intentions.' By the end of the three-day session I was clear about my intention for the coming months. I will encourage my imagination to soar, unhindered by fear or apprehension. My best ideas for books and magazine articles come when I allow my mind and heart to take wing! And then turn the ideas over to God for His direction.

President-Elect Barack

Here I am with our new President, though he was wearing a cardboard suit when I met him!! While in Sonoma last week my husband parked the car on a street full of shops and galleries so we could take a leisurely walk. When we got out I realized we were standing in front of an Obama Campaign Office. Couldn't resist having Charles take my photo with Mr. Pres. I hope I get to shake his real hand one day!

It has been an historic couple of days. How blessed we are to live in such a time as this. I feel very grateful to be an American and to look ahead to what God has for us through our new president and his associates.

I also thank God for President Bush and his family. I hope he and Laura can now enjoy a time of peace and rest after serving our country for eight years.
