Oh, lovelies, it’s #ThankfulThursday and you are all so wonderful, and so while I’ve got a trio of hotties for you to help us make it through the week, I want you to know that I’m so thankful for *you*. I’m having a rough time, and you all know that, and so many of you have commented / reached out / emailed to just say that you’re thinking of my mom and I, and that means more than I can say. As an author you’d think I’d have better words to be grateful, but I’m just overwhelmed by the kindness our little corner of the internet has shown in the past week (especially when it feels like the entire world is underwater, and in danger, and being hurt, and being threatened, and nothing really feels good when I lift my head up at the moment). My friend Lesley Clark (who is also having a shit time) said it best when she said I went from the highest of highs hitting USA Today to the lowest of lows finding out my mom had taken a turn. I think that has given me some kind of emotional whiplash because I just can’t process much of anything right now, and I’m relatively useless in general (as an employee, an author, a sub, a friend, a mom, a daughter). I promise I’m not in the dark pit, I’m more floating in a grayscale haze wondering if I slept or just laid still for hours and sometimes I’m just staring into space not thinking at all. Like I said, emotional whiplash. My brain is offline and the reboot isn’t complete, but hot guys are hot guys, and since I missed a bunch of my normal posts, I wanted to give you guys this. <3 I’ll be back online soon, I just don’t know when, but I adore you all and I’m so thankful for each of you.
