Another holiday is sneaking up on me!

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. This is a crazy week. I get that. There are family, meals, and
arrangements to be made, not to mention pumpkin pies and stuffing. It may not be the week you're FEELING most grateful, but . . . 
I just wanted to express my gratitude for spending a few minutes with me each month, and for subscribing to the newsletter. It means a lot to me!

You know, we do most of our living in "ordinary" days, taking most things for granted just the way we do the people we love. Yet there are countless encounters during the course of each day that call out for appreciation.

The Gift of Gratitude

So while we’re contemplating all that we have in our lives to be thankful, let’s not forget about our friends. The Goddess often sends us her energy through our friends.

I, for one, am thankful for our Goddess friend, the Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway, my favorite 'goddess author' and the kind of girlfriend who pulls you out of jams and who laughs with you (and doesn't need canned jokes to start the giggles).

I met Laurie Sue when I was a struggling 'newbie' on the web. She wrote praising the site (my HOW we do LOVE praise!) and offering to help us out by allowing me to reprint her article on the Goddess Lakshmi at our site. This was a real Goddess-send to our (then) tiny little site. 

And the great news is that Healing Expressions just published Rev. Laurie Sue's latest eBook. It's about Lakshmi and it is absolutely awesome! Wait . . . it gets even better. It's being launched right now at the special price of $7.99 AND it comes with a bonus book about Lakshmi's 'evil sister', the goddess of negative thoughts and negative energy and guess what? You've got to deal with her first, before you can get access to all the boons that Lakshmi has in store for you.  I love it! Here are all the details:

Just Ask Lakshmi - New E-book of Prayers and Rituals to Honor the Goddess of Good Fortune

Over a decade ago, during a challenging time in her life, author Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway had a vision of beautiful Indian woman. She writes, "She wore a green sari and had four arms, and a distinct Indian accent, but I did not know who she was at the time." Rev. Laurie Sue was given a clear message by this divine being who she would eventually come to know and embrace as the Goddess Lakshmi.

Acting on Goddess Lakshmi's message, she spent years researching everything there is to know about this popular goddess. It changed her life in extraordinary ways and set her on a path of love, success and happiness. Now she shares the secret of attaining Lakshmi's blessings.

Born of Indian heritage and worshipped by Hindu people in all corners of the globe,  Lakshmi is also a Universal Goddess who can be called upon by anyone of any faith who chooses a spiritual focus for bringing more good fortune into their lives.

In this powerful eBook, Just Ask Lakshmi, Rev. Laurie Sue recounts her personal and shares dozens of prayers, rituals and ways to bring Lakshmi closer and bring more money, opportunities and good fortune into your life.

Rev. Laurie Sue is also author of "The Goddess Pages," "Wedding Goddess," and the ecourse, "Discovering the Goddess."

"Just Ask Lakshmi" comes with a complementary eBook on "Transforming Negativity." The special launch price is $7.99. Order at:

I've heard from a couple of (?? desperate) subscribers who are suiting up to host family Thanksgiving celebrations. They were asking if we were going to send out Laurie Sue's Thanksgiving Blessing again this year. . .  You betcha' we will!

For some of us it may have to serve as a grace-full antidote to what sometimes happens when the "close confinement, with large supplies of alcohol, of blood relations who have had the good sense to keep far apart for the previous three hundred and sixty four days come together at the table." (This description of family togetherness is provided by Reginald Hill, Death's Jest-Book.) Here's the prayer:

However it is that you're celebrating this year, enjoy what's most special to you.
And Happy Thanksgiving!
