I believe that Thanksgiving 2021 will be one of the most appreciated holidays in recent memory. Last year, the COVID scare kept families apart for the holiday. With the advent of vaccines and new treatments, even though people are still frightened, they seem to be a little more willing to get together. The day should be WONDERFUL!
I will be driving 70 miles to be with my brother and his family in Mercer, PA. Not all extended family members will be present - they were just diagnosed with COVID. The older folks among us all have our vaccines and boosters, and some of the others have a natural immunity, since they had COVID earlier this year. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving Day. It such a great holiday, all about food and family, and I don't have to buy presents!
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with the ones you love, with the attitude of gratitude.

I LOVE writing. And I love writing children's books- my newest passion. Although it will be a ton of work, I am looking forward to selling my books. Since I was a secondary teacher, I know that I have much to learn about elementary students, and I will have to follow my own advice and be my genuine self. However, I also know that I am passionate about helping kids who have to wear glasses, and that GRADY GETS GLASSES sends a positive message. I am willing to work hard and do all the things that also made me a successful teacher for 37
