Updates, reminder, & be thankful

Hi there everyone!

Just a quick note …

Updates: I have added information to some pages:  Writers’ Helps, Suicide Crisis Lines, and Books I read in 2017 – frequent updates there. You’re welcome to visit often and see what’s new. 

Reminder:  On November 30 I will be drawing a name from the comments on THIS POST and that person will win one of Janet Sketchley’s exciting suspense novels. Be sure to leave a comment, and please pass the news on to your friends. You might want to mention it on Twitter, Facebook, and anywhere else you have friends who could be interested. Spread the word about Janet’s books!

And be thankful:

“Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be genuine.
But most of all, be thankful.”  —Unknown

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. So, Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends. (Our Canadian Thanksgiving was in October.)

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  :0)

If you have been following my blog, you will know that we have been under added stress with cancer diagnosis, surgery, recovery, and waiting for test results. Those results were received this morning — the lengthy pathology report summed up that my husband is cancer free! When I called and told him he laughed with relief. It is such a load off us with all else going on. I think when he walks in the door tonight I might cry with happiness. 🙂 What he doesn’t know until he gets home is that we are going out to celebrate tonight with our family (eight or nine of us) to dinner at Swiss Chalet. It feels like a new day.

I heard on the radio this morning that today, January 21, is known as Blue Monday. As my sister-in-law said: “Blue Monday debunked!!”  🙂  It also is known as International Hug day. I can assure you, my husband is going to be sufficiently hugged today, starting with me!  🙂 A big Thank you, to everyone who prayed.

Reminders: Leave a comment for your chance to win a book; sign up for email notifications to new posts on my blog; come back to find out what the special feature is all about.  Full details on that tomorrow when the winner of Sue Harrison’s book is announced.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
