About Me

My photo
My journey as a writer began as a child. I wrote poems and short stories which were my way of dealing with various life changing events. I am a member of Rave Reviews Book Club. Follow me on Twitter @KIngallsAuthor www.facebook.com/KarenIngalls, and you can find my books at www.amazon.com. My first book is Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir which received two awards. All proceeds are donated to gynecologic cancer research. My second book is a novel Novy's Son, about one man's attempt to find love and acceptance from his father. This is an all too common problem in our society. My third book, Davida: Model and Mistress of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is about the love affair between this great American sculptor and his model.

                                    AND MY MOST HUMBLE THANKS TO THOSE WHO
                                    HAVE SUPPORTED GYNECOLOGICAL CANCER

     AND MY THANKS TO THE WOMEN, THE SISTERS, WHO HAVE TOLD ME
                ABOUT THEIR JOURNEY WITH CANCER. WE HAVE SHARED LAUGHTER
                AND TEARS, EXCHANGED INFORMATION, AND GIVEN EACH OTHER

                SOMETIMES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!


     In the United States, Thanksgiving is a very special day when we share a supper together with
family or friends. Usually we eat too much turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, and an assortment of pies, but the togetherness of special people in our lives is what matters.



     In Canada they celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October. They have parades and family dinners with turkey and all the trimmings expressing thankfulness for the year's harvest.

     India is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country that celebrates the thanksgiving of God's grace on them. With the increased influence of Western culture, several areas do celebrate Thanksgiving where it is known as Ladin or Ladainha. It is a time of "thanks for all material and spiritual benefits."

     "Other Asian countries such as China, Malaysia, Korea celebrate....Harmony, peace, feeling gratitude is the underlying theme of the celebration all over."

I wish you a most blessed day today wherever you are in the world...a time to give thanks for all the many gifts we have.
