To start I will mention how beautiful it is today. Knowing not everyone is in New England I wonder how the weather is in other states or countries. Care to share?

I was so happy last night when I asked a good friend to read the new story I have written. It made me happy for two reasons. one, she liked it! obvious reaction from me! Two, she was an English major in college and doesn’t believe in just saying nice things to make you feel good. She is honest and gives helpful feedback. So, it was nice to hear that she liked my story.

For those of you who follow my blog but don’t know me, I have had a lot of loss in my life in the past 16 months. I lost my husband and my son. Last night I had a dream and in my dream they walked in together. It was the first dream I had when it was so realistic you wake up wondering if that is your real life and the tragedy you deal with is the dream. Unfortunately, that was just a dream but it did leave me with a speck of peace.

So, not to turn this beautiful day into one of sorrow or pain, I think I will fill my day with writing and researching my next steps. I have a goal now, one that is more concrete than before. I want my books to make it to one of the Big Five! I know it’s going to take a lot of hard work and rejection before I get there but I am going to work towards it.

Peace to you all, enjoy the day, ignore the news(lol!), and be thankful for what you have.
