It has been a couple of tough weeks around here on the personal front. I won’t bore you with the details because everyone has “stuff.” But I did decide that it might be good for me to remind myself of all that I have to be thankful for:
A terrific family and wonderful friends — like you!
My book with Mary is going into its second week on the New York Times bestseller list (and even if it wasn’t, I feel so blessed to be able to write with my good buddy!)
So even though personal life sometimes makes it hard for me to meet the page every day in the way I would like to, I always think of these wise words from Katherine Paterson: “The very people who take away my time and space to write are those who give me something to say.”
