Do you know what makes you happy? How do you create a happy life? Finding the answers to these questions changed Meridith’s life and guided her to write  My Happy Thank You Book. The premise—that practicing gratitude creates a strong foundation for happiness and abundance throughout life—is the centerpiece of Meridith’s message to both children and parents. “You can literally feel gratitude and thankfulness for anything in your life. When you learn to notice what you are thankful for, you will begin to feel happier, because thankfulness and happiness go hand-in-hand. By taking note of your gratitude for the people, moments, and activities that make you happiest, you will begin to know yourself more fully. It is this self awareness that is the foundation for becoming an intentional creator of your own happy life.”

Meridith is a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She lives in the San Diego area with her three children and their two adored cats. She spends time writing and creating and enjoying San Diego with her kids.
