Gramercy, Reader Friend!

Today, we’re closing out our little journey of thankfulness by considering how we can express our gratitude for the written word.

Wait … you’ve got us thanking words now, Joy? That’s it! Time to get you out of the house and away from the computer!

Just hear me out! I promise I am still as sane as any homeschooling, volunteering, work-at-home, aspiring author mom can be!

Just ask my cat. He’ll vouch for me … right after he helps me edit another draft of my novel.

Now, where were we?

Ah, yes! Thanking the written word.

As a kid, books were my primary companions, so I was never lonely. As I grew, I discovered myself in their pages.

As a writer, it is through words that I express myself, release my imagination and breathe life into the dreams that dance in my heart.

It is with words, we vow our hearts to another, say goodbye to a loved one and welcome a baby after its first cry. Words of hope surround us and uplift us on our darkest days. Words enable us to express every one of the emotions roiling within us.

The same God who created you and me, created words with which to do all these things I’ve already mentioned and so much more.

He also created stories, all stories—truth, fiction; poetry, prose; nonsensical, lyrical, descriptive or informative. He created us to be a people of stories. It is through these stories—and the words that build them—that we leave pieces of ourselves behind forever. Words are lasting, powerful, potent.

So, on this day of thanks, I urge you to thank our Creator for everything—including WORDS.

Gramercy, Reader Friend!
