Thankful Author - Peggy Jaeger

Angela – what a fabulous idea this blog is!  Sometimes, we need to be reminded to gives thanks for all the blessings we have.

I am thankful that every day of my life I wake up with the knowledge God loves me, I have people in my life who cherish me - and I them – and that I live in a country where I have the freedom to do and be anything my heart desires. I am thankful I have the ability to say what I want and think what I do without the thought I will be killed, deported, or vilified for doing so. I am thankful I am a smart, educated, successful woman and that I have been able to pass all of that on to my own daughter.

Family Practice Doctor Clarissa Rogers’ first impression of Padric Cleary is biased and based on gossip. The handsome, charming veterinarian is considered a serial dater and commitment-phobic by his family and most of the town. Relationship shy, Clarissa refuses to lose her heart to a man who can’t pledge himself to her forever.

Pat Cleary, despite his reputation, is actually looking for "The One." When he does give his heart away, he wants it to be for life. With his parent’s marriage as his guidebook, he wants a woman who will be his equal and soul mate in every way. 
Can Pat convince everyone – including Clarissa – she’s the only woman for him?
