(2017 NaNoWriMo) Captain’s Log, Day 23

Thank goodness I’ve won NaNoWriMo already, or I’d be worried that I didn’t write much yesterday. I don’t know who thought it would be a good idea to put this challenge in the month of November, as July seems like a much more calm and peaceful month for most people. Or maybe March, depending on whether or not you have kids with spring breaks that fall in March. Whatever the case may be, I found myself thankful for so many things yesterday that I don’t want to break tradition of the last few years. So, I’m letting someone else speak a bit on thankfulness.

Most of us never stop to consider our blessings; rather, we spend the day only thinking about our problems. But since you have to be alive to have problems, be grateful for the opportunity to have them. ~Bernie Siegel

Hope that you and yours had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
