Thanksgiving is approaching and as it should, it brings to mind thoughts of thankfulness.
I am sincerely thankful that I can write to you. I am thankful that what begins in my mind can flow through my pen into a spiral notebook and be transformed into something that touches your mind without uttering any word or displaying any gesture. It is amazing to me that so much meaning can be conveyed by pen scrawls on paper. It is truly a wonder to me that I can express the imaginings in my own head in this way to share them with you.
I am by nature a talkative and expressive person, but the act of writing is deeper and allows for conveying a more complex parade of thoughts. I am driven to express this way. The absence of this ability would render me stifled, and so I am very grateful for it. To imagine being unable to do this is a harrowing thought.
For so many years, I wrote only for myself. It was a quiet and satisfying endeavor that I derived much pleasure from. Recently, I have begun to share my pen scrawls with you in the form of this blog, my novel and other ways. I have two more stories in process and after that I will not stop. The act of sharing my writing with you is an exhilarating extension of this already joyful gift. I am thankful for the gift of writing and I am thankful that you are here reading it.
I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving.

And I’m glad you do…cause we may not have met otherwise! ❤
I love that you are sharing your writing as well. That’s how I got to know you.
Kellianne, thanks so much for this post. It was very sweet, and a wonderful reminder of how thankful we should feel. I dreamed of being a writer for 20 years. Just when some might have considered it too late, I got my chance. Just like you, people are now reading my words each and every week.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
GORGEOUS picture, Kellianne!
Happy Thanksgiving! And thank you for sharing your writing! ❤
Well said, Kellianne. And isn’t it great – with the wonders of the internet and social media – that we all get to share our writing, rather than it being left in a drawer somewhere.
Have a great holiday as well! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
Number one, thankful for readers! Otherwise we’re only writing to ourselves, which is only a step up from talking to yourself and we all know that if you talk to yourself, people may think that you’re crazy… Happy Turkey Day!
Thanks for sharing! That was wonderful!
A belated Thanksgiving Day to you. Keep up the good work 🙂
