A Personal Message from Ann

Author Ann Richmond Fisher

Thanksgiving is a great time to remember all your blessings, and to share those with friends and family. Even if you can't relate to the fifteen in my list above, you surely can list at least ten of your own. You may have seen internet challenges to list one item a day for the month of November for which you are grateful. Naming these blessings, and sharing them with others are sure to make for a more bountiful Thanksgiving!

Here are Word-Game-World, I am very grateful for each one of you who have taken the time to visit my website in the past year. I look forward to continuing to provide you with entertaining word games and puzzles for a very long time to come!   --- Ann Fisher
