Thanksgiving Reflections & Empty Chairs

Today is Thanksgiving Day; the day many of us will gather at the table for food and fellowship with family, friends and loved ones. We will enjoy each other’s company as we reflect upon the people and things in our lives which make us happy. We will express gratitude for our families, friends, jobs, homes which protect us from the elements, vehicles, and possibly even our ice-makers, coffee pots, dishwashers, and other creature comforts and conveniences. Many of us will eat too much as we express gratitude for our bounty. Sadly, however, some will gather at the Thanksgiving table only to stare at the empty chair where a beloved friend or family member should be sitting. These people will long for the companionship of days gone by. This week I have watched in horror and sorrow as two of my friends lost beloved members of their families in two senseless and unrelated tragedies. One was killed in an accidental shooting; the other was killed by a drunk driver. In both cases, the family member who died was very young. In both cases, the family member who died left two small children behind. Does the fact that their deaths occurred during Thanksgiving week make them more tragic? Any time loved ones die, families are left to grieve, but during the times when people are focused on gathering together, the loss may seem more glaring. Perhaps another thing that makes the loss of these two people so horrific is the senselessness of their deaths, their young ages, and the children they left behind. I woke up this morning thinking that if...

A Heartfelt Thank You

Without a doubt, I have been blessed with the best fans in the industry. I already knew that; in fact, I have been tweeting it (bragging about it) for weeks. But today, I have proof. I want to share with you a quote from an email which I received from Jay at ChoosyBookworm:      “For the very first time in R&R history, your book received all of it’s interested readers on the very first day of promotion!  Congratulations to you and your book!” I knew you guys were awesome, but this amazed me. I was thunderstruck! As you know, ChoosyBookworm.com offered a free digital copy of “Rag Dolls: Callie’s Story” in exchange for an honest review. The program was supposed to run for about a week, or until all digital copies were given away. You, my awesome fans, made history by claiming all available copies within the first day! To tell you I am honored would be an understatement. I am humbled and grateful from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Shelley...
