What is the one thing I am most thankful for this year?

I found this very difficult to answer. The several different versions before this one would prove that. Of course, I am thankful for the obvious reasons; family, friends, having a job. But how do I narrow it down to one thing without sounding big headed and selfish?

This is how.

I have wanted to be an author for as long as I can remember. I have been writing down ideas and stories since I was in grade school. It took just one meeting, and sitting next to one very important person, to make my dream a reality. None of this would have happened if my sister Debbie hadn’t shown me the way. My journey started with a newspaper clipping.

My sister lives in Wyoming MN. Like anywhere, a small community newspaper is delivered to her home. Inside was a notice of an author meeting, Northern Lights, at the local library. She cut it out and mailed it to me. On the day the meeting was held, I like to say I crashed the meeting. Crashing it sounds so much more exciting and so not me! But in reality, I walked in and was invited to stay. As luck would have it, I ended up sitting next to an editor of Mélange/Fire and Ice. And before I knew what was happening, I was on my way to be being a published author.

So, what is the ONE most important thing I am thankful for this past year? I am absolutely, positively, thankful that my big sister Debbie gave me the kick in my pants I obviously needed. Thank you Deb, for sending me on my way to become the author I have always wanted to be, and giving me one of the most amazing rides I have ever been on!

JT Adeline is the youngest of six kids, and two very supportive parents who have always encouraged imagination and creativity. She currently lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with her husband of 26 years, her two sons, a stubborn cat and a large American Bulldog.
