I live in St. Louis, MO, but my heart and soul hang out at the beach. I am a multi-genre, award winning writer and member of St. Louis Writer's Guild. I am a seasoned pre-k teacher, on line writing instructor, wife, mother, Nana to ten. Hopefully, something I say will make you smile, further your writing career, or inspire you to write from the heart, too.

My rambling thoughts
Thanksgiving feast a mouthful. Toothless baby grins
children with missing teeth and braces shoveling it in. Great grandparents nibbling; Me, eating up all four generations.
Year after year: hubby methodically carving the turkey, a blend of delectable aromas rising from the side dishes.
Everyone crowding in our small kitchen waiting for grace to be said, then a rush to the buffet style serving counter, and the dispersal of all ages to different rooms.
Some go to the lower level rec room where we have a large conference table covered with a holiday table cloth, a seating area with comfy furniture, video games and television.
The elders upstairs seated around the table, taking small bites.
Laughter, card games, board games.
Lazy loungers sprawled in overstuffed chairs with full tummies.
One last hurrah at dark as we pick at the pies and say NO MORE, but take one more bite.
This year, my heart aches for those no longer with us, loved ones far away, and the world situation.
I am blessed, and when I count my blessings, I regard each of you. Thank you for your comments and readership.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving. I am going to take a break for a few days. I have several writing deadlines and a great idea.
A quiet room, a cup of peach tea and I will accomplish some goals.
