Thankful Author - Mimi Barbour


I want to thank Angela for inviting me to be one of the authors she is highlighting this month. It’s an honor and I was so happy when she chose me.
As you all know, I’m supposed to write a post telling you, the reader, what I have to be thankful about. Now, for me to pick out specifics is extremely difficult. For weeks, I’ve given thought to what I could list here that would resonate with you, be sincerely honest and explain just exactly what a fortunate woman I am. And I can’t come up with one exclusive detail.
I’m sorry, but I wanted to go past the obvious such as being thankful for good health, a happy marriage, and a wonderful family. I am so blessed in all those areas that I can’t zero in and pick one. I also didn’t want to use subjects such as feeling grateful for my career, my talent or my readers. You all know that everyone has one thing they’re really good at and it turns out that creating entertaining stories happen to be mine.
So… my brain is filtering through other subjects I might delve into. Like the fact that I had a happy childhood, with delightful parents who are in their late 80’s and 90’s, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary recently and are still alive and doing well. This thought brings a smile to my heart, it’s true.
But I still haven’t discovered that one thing I’m most thankful for.
And then it hit me, like a sledgehammer of certainty.
I’m truly thankful for being me, Mimi Barbour: a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend and an author.
Sending you all hugs with hopes that you have the perfect Thanksgiving and that the coming season is warm and wonderful.
Mimi
