A Bit Of Me


Before getting to today's meme, I would like to share something with you all.  With Thanksgiving next week, we should remember and give thanks to our military and their families, who are giving of themselves for our freedom and security.

So many authors give us books that we love, but Kudos to these 5 authors, that also gave to our military men and women.  I wanted to give them the recognition they deserve:

International Thriller Writers' USO Tour, "Operation Thriller"

Five of today's most critically acclaimed thriller writers (left to right) Douglas Preston, Steve Berry, David Morrell, James Rollins, and Andy Harp posed for a group photo during a USO meet-and-greet in Kuwait on November 8, 2010. Part of a week-long USO tour entitled "Operation Thriller," the authors were in the Middle East extending America's heartfelt thanks to US troops.

From Danielle's blog:
  We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.
This weeks question:  Name at least one (more if you want) thing you are grateful for.

My answer:

greatest gifts that we could ever have!!! 

And There Is One More Thing That I am grateful for (lol):

Yeah to the authors! What a wonderful way to thank our troops. I'mm just sorry my brothers missed out! Sort of...

I have to agree family & friends... but maybe then dessert... I don't always crave ice cream, sometimes it's pie, or cheesecake, or well, this could go on a while!

I agree with you - I would be lost without my family!
