I said it. Life is ridiculously crazy wonderful. And guess what? I have been married for over 25 years. He took a kid to the soccer game. I took another to basketball. He worked overtime. Our honeymoon was a weekend trip a few miles away. We spent a weekend at Laguna Beach for our 20th anniversary.
So my husband came with me and our vacation was extended. Hawaii and then New York for wine and cheese, cocktails on rooftops, and dinners out. My head is still spinning. So much happening so fast! But screw it. Even before I sold one book on Amazon, I had decided that enough was enough. Yeah, like many of you, I had some pretty crappy things happen to me when I was growing up. Maybe not ever. Also, like many couples do, my parents divorced.
We sold our house on top of the hill, moved to the haunted house down the street, and ate beans. I was paying for my own dentist bills at the age of 14 and I had to get a work permit from high school so I could leave school to waitress. It took years for me to realize that I learned my greatest lessons from the tough times. It just means you choose not to be angry and bitter about it all.
Road rage has completely left me. My kids have many stories about those days, which is sad. If I could do it all over again, things would be different. BUT even amidst the bad days, there was always good. I always had my mom and my sisters. All four of my sisters have always been encouraging and supportive. She can get a little crazy with her red pen. It took me years to be able to take her criticism without feeling crushed.
She has made me uncrushable. Cathy and I love reading self-help books. She follows the books to a tee and I take the stuff I like and leave the rest. We are opposites in many ways. Way nicer than most everyone. Anyhow, one of the self-help books we read talked a lot about affirmation cards. If a card produces results, she puts that card away and writes a new one. A few months ago, she gave me a card she had written and carried around for years.
If you look at the picture you can see that she wrote the original index card in Maybe she felt enough was enough. Time for a card! The card had no choice but to work. A few months ago, Cathy gave me the card.
But I know it now. I get it. Yeah, not publishing for 19 years was getting old, but a few years before I sold a book, I knew my time would come. Every single sale is amazing. How cool is that? Write better than ever. Focus on the writing and the characters and you just might be the author with the next bestseller. It could be you. Believe it! I am grateful every day to have water to drink. I like having access to drinkable water. My nephew is in South Sudan. Where he is living, local court is held under a shade tree.
Case settled. Sounds a little steep if you ask me. Hence this is where we are to respond to emergencies from chronic drought and the like. And all the animals are long gone. Just lots of lizards, scorpions, snakes, eagles, vultures, and bats. He needs a new liver. Livers are not easy to come by, but I sure hope he gets one soon. If you have good health, be grateful for it. If you have arms and legs and good sight, be grateful.
If you have a roof over your head or wonderful sisters, be grateful. Sorry for rambling on--a rambling post with random pictures. I really just wanted to say that life is good and this water tastes great! Posted by.
HAVING MY BABY THERESA RAGAN PDF
I am super appreciative that Theresa Ragan made this available for free last Friday, thank you! MC Jill is pregnant see cover for clue alert as our story opens. Her ex-boyfriend, Thomas the Weasel, left her standing at the altar, humiliated and angry. Derrick Baylor is a super romance-novel dream guy. The 30 yo qb of the California Condors is dreamy handsome, smart, hardworking, has a great sense of humor and is from a huge, loving and down to earth family. So that is where our players stand as the curtain rises. Of course there are misunderstandings, miscontrued or inadvertantly overheard conversations that are taken the wrong way.
