Thankful

Nov
27

I want to tell each and every one of you how thankful I am to you for your willingness to contribute to support this site–and I will, soon. (If you don’t hear from me personally, that means I screwed up and lost your address, so I’m apologizing already just in case.) I also want to thank each of you who left kind words and thoughts. I am humbled by your sweetness, and can only hope that I can live up to your support. I may not be rich in dollars, but I am rich with the blessing of all of you. This site means a lot to me, and to know that it means something to you, too, is amazing. This site is my heart and soul, my family and my farm and my heritage (and for those of you who live in or are from WV, I know it’s your heritage, too, and it is really important to me to honor that and lift up West Virginia to the world for the awesome, yet mostly ignored, place that it is). Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you for simply being here! You are what makes this site special.

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving, and as Coco likes to say, “Don’t forget to take a nap.”

    Hi, Suzanne, when I was browsing some rooster pictures tonight, I found your website. I really enjoy the pictures you took and the stories you have with them. Great job. I think I will be regular visitor from now on.

    Happy Thanksgiving Suzanne! Thank you for blessing me each morning with your writing and pictures. Sharing your life has replaced the morning paper with my coffee. Your blog is where my pc takes me first everyday (unless there is urgency in checking winter weather updates).

    Blessings to you and your family this Thanksgiving day!

    And Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! My family is spread far and wide, but I will be with my “other family” – generational friends of 35 years. Voices on the phone are almost as good – have talked to one sister, will talk to my daughter (living in corn in Iowa now) next, and have one sister to go. Coco, I’ll think of you when I nap later, but not too loudly as I’m sure Emma, my calico, will join me. :catmeow:

    Have a lovely holiday.

    West Virginia certainly looks lovely. Why is it ignored?

    Didn’t John Denver call it “Almost Heaven” in Country Roads?

    Bought your newest book Wednesday. I’m also taking Coco’s advice a lot–too much, I’d say. I wish I could do with fewer naps.

    I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast. Knowing what a great cook you are I wish I could have been an invisible(?) guest. LOL

    I know things are always hopping around your place. I’m still trying to get sorted out from my latest move Sept 9-25. Yep, that’s how long the actual move took–never mind setting up everything again. I came across most of the books of yours that I have. Do you still have contests so that I might get the rest of them?

    Cheers and best wishes.

    Blessings from Ohio…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
