Em’s Extras: Extra-Gratitude Edition

I always, always read a book’s Acknowledgments. I don’t remember exactly when I started to pay attention to them, but it has been a long time. I really enjoy reading the kind and marvelous phrases an author uses to thank or praise their support system, their loved ones, their life cheerleaders.

Acknowledgments fascinate me. They are a testimony that-the best-things in life are never an individual endeavor. Even a task usually associated with solitude and isolation-such as writing a book.

I have shared my book’s dedication already in a previous post and today in the spirit of gratitude-most needed during this times-I am sharing my book’s Acknowledgments. These people deserve so much more than the few words next to their names. They read, edit, inspire, motivate, cheer, reassure, critique, and praise (me and) my book with love always.

These are the printed acknowledgements, just as they will appear in the published book.

I am fortunate to have the support of many other amazing people. I wish I could include everyone, but I wanted to honor these extra-special book cheerleaders.

Even though I love book Acknowledgements, real-life ones are better. Acknowledging is gratitude, and we need it now more than ever.

Today is a perfect time to acknowledge your support system, your team, your loved ones, and your life cheerleaders.

I hope this inspires you to go and say, “Thank you”!

Thank you for reading me,
