Gratitude #Giveaway $10 Gift Card


Time for the Gratitude Giveaway hosted by Kathy.



What are YOU grateful for?

Positive psychology research shows that acknowledging our gratitudes can make us happier. So I'm giving you the opportunity to do just that in the giveaway.

I'm grateful for my two sisters. They're fun, smart, kind, and beautiful. One of these days I'll beat Laurie in Words With Friends (she cheats, I swear) and maybe I'll cave to Susan's constant cajoling for me to move near her in South Carolina.

I'm blessed to have siblings I call my friends. It makes all the teasing from childhood worth it!

And thank YOU, awesome readers, for making my new release Blocked a top seller among volleyball books.

I'm so very thankful to have my Mom and my younger sister Sara's support in my life, both financially and physically, since I became permanently and totally disabled a few years ago. I have degenerative disk disease in my spine, so my whole back is pretty much broken and by it's own definition -- "degenerative" -- it'll never get better, only worse as time goes on. It's very hard to be 27 years old and not only have to still have to rely on your family to do really basic things like drive you everywhere, go grocery shopping and make dinner for you, but to also know that it'll never get better, that you'll never be physically able to get married and have children while the rest of the family is growing with what seems like a new baby every year. It's especially tough when the holiday season rolls around because all of my cousins are all having babies -- six kids under the age of ten, with two more on the way! -- and my brain has to balance keeping up the subconscious fight to keep my depression at bay so it doesn't ruin the happiness of living vicariously, of seeing all these new little human beings grow and change in the ways the children I've always imagined having (but now never will) would. My Mom and Sara work really, really hard to take care of me and anticipate my needs, especially in social situations like these, which are both physically and emotionally taxing. Each passing year makes me realize how truly lucky I am to have a family support system...even if the stress does tend to boil over and make us fight about it on a regular basis. They're my family and my team and they've been keeping me going when I don't have much of a future left to look forward to, and for that I am truly grateful.

I'm also really grateful for all the authors, librarians, book reviewers and bloggers out there who offer giveaways like this one. Being disabled, with SSI as my only source of income, it's incredibly tough to make ends meet every month. At the end of October, my cat Rita had to see the vet for an emergency eye problem. She's better now, hooray, and *knock on wood* that she stays healthy!!! But the vet visit cost $100. It was worth it, of course, because she's my furbaby, but that expense ate up a third of my allotted Christmas budget this year, a budget that I'd worked on since last January, scrimping and saving and couponing whenever possible, to be able to show my Mom and Sara how much they're appreciated with one special large gift each. (I feel like I say "please" and "thank you" and "would you mind" and "could you please" so much that they don't even really hear it more; Or maybe that my feelings of gratitude are expressed so often they've lost the genuine meaning, depth, and sincerity behind them.) Potentially winning giveaways like this one would mean that I will not have to cut my budget for Mom and Sara's Christmas presents this year as drastically as initially expected. (I'm delighted to have just won $25 this weekend, so I'm trying to be really optimistic about this situation and think of my goal as 1/4 accomplished!)

So thank you again. Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so grateful for modern medicine this year. A lot of my family are still alive because of life saving techniques that medicine provides. Just in the last year my mother in law and uncle beat cancer, my dad was rescued from an accidental overdose after eye surgery and my Grandma and Granny have survived pneumonia and kidney failure.

Thank you for the giveaway.
