one week til school…Summers OVER

It’s been a crazy summer. My son is practicing football three days a week (yep, all summer). I’ve been writing every free minute I have. My assistant found out she was accepted to University of Georgia. As I said, it’s been a crazy summer.

Oh and I found out I’m not getting any younger. I’m walking 4 1/2 miles three to four days a week to keep healthy, trying to eat better and totally refusing to be over stressed. Of course hormones changing and just life are trying their best to take over, but I’m fighting both with a positive attitude and lot’s of prayer.

It’s hard to believe summer is almost over. I know that technically we still have a month or so left of the season, but when school starts back it’s like summer is over. My son starts high school this year, so he’s getting excited and nervous at the same time.

As for my writing, I have two books hopefully coming out in August. Victoria is the first book in my new Historical Romance Saga “Women of Magnolia Hill” and the 2nd book in the “Lean On Him” Christian romance series “Faith Through the Tears”. Victoria is going to be a longer novel and Faith Through the Tears will be a novella. Both covers are completely done and ready for the books to be completed.

Hope everyone enjoys today. It’s Monday, but be glad you’re alive and hopefully well. 

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

When life gives you lemons…

As you can tell from the title it’s been a tough week. I’ve been battling a cold or sinus or crud, whatever you want to call it. Since it’s tax season I’ve been working a lot of hours through the fog. 

Of course as it usually goes, life goes on even when you’re sick. My son started football training for tryouts in May. My husband and I have always supported him in whatever he wanted to do. He played baseball for about five years and always wanted to play football. He’s on the 4-H Shotgun team and does really good with that. He loves anything outdoors. Football scares me due to the injuries that can occur, but I know I have to let him do things. 

Well as you know I’m a Children’s Minister. Last night I’d prepared for the kids to watch a Bible DVD cartoon since I wasn’t feeling well. Since the teacher of the preschoolers didn’t show up I had all the children. Well as I tried to turn the projector on I soon realized something was wrong. I spent a few frustrating minutes trying to get the projector to connect to the laptop, but to no avail. I then moved the children to one of the rooms that has a large screen television and dvd player.

As I watched the children sit and watch the film I realized how lucky I am. I’m given such a wonderful chance to make a difference in the lives of these children. I smiled to myself and thanked God for the opportunity I’ve been given.

That’s the attitude I decided to adopt with my son on the football thing. He was so excited and I don’t want to dampen his fun by being overprotective. I’ll just be watchful 🙂 

So when life gives you lemons, smile and enjoy every sour bite.

Football Mania…Yes I watched.

Well I did something last night that I don’t normally do. I sat and watched most of the Super Bowl. I don’t have anything against football, I just got way too much football while I was in school. My brother, who is 15 months younger than me, played football from primary school all the way through to his senior year. I went to every game and most of the practices. I even dressed up in pads and practiced with him. Scary thought isn’t it? Not a pretty picture either.

I usually catch snippets of games while my son is watching it in his room. But that’s normally it. So last night we promised our son we’d watch the kick off. Well, that turned out to be a mistake because we became entangled somehow and watched until the timer went 0:00 at the end of the 4th quarter. Well, not all of us, my husband went to bed at timer 2:00. Really, he did that. How on earth can you go to bed when the game is that close and almost over? Caught him watching it in the bedroom. Knew he couldn’t stand it. 🙂

It was an exciting game. My adrenaline level was way too high when I finally crawled into bed. For those that did not watch the big game there was a brief power outage. During this 34 minute delay I almost went to bed with a good book, but something kept me there. So I sat and I watched. I guess you could say I enjoyed the game.

Since the 49er’s stopped the Atlanta Falcons from being in the Super Bowl, naturally I rooted for the Ravens. I am a Georgia girl, what can I say. Now if the Falcons had gone to the Super Bowl I would not have been shocked if I’d watched the game. But congrats to both teams for making it to the big game.

As always, good writing and May God bless you.
