Happy Thanksgiving


Wishing you and yours a very healthy, happy and fun-filled Thanksgiving celebration. I am deeply grateful to be able to celebrate in person with my family this year rather than Zoom and hope the same for you.

God Bless and safe travels should you be doing so.

Thank You, Veterans


Today, we celebrate and honor American veterans (and their families) for their sacrifice, their patriotism, and their willingness to serve our great country. Thank you does not begin to cover the debt for which we owe you. For those of you still serving, may God grant you peace, safety and strength.

God Bless America!

I recently found this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote saved on my computer and felt it deserved a re-visit. Such an important piece of advice, regardless of one's lot in life, but definitely so as a writer.

"No one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety." 

So very true yet so hard to do. Writing is often a constant state of anxiety. Is this WIP any good? Is my mc believable? Will anyone want to publish this? Will anyone want to buy and read it? And so it goes. A constant state of chaotic, anxiety-ridden brain space. However, I love what Emerson says about finishing your day and letting it go, having "done what you could." As, most importantly, "tomorrow is a new day...this day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays."

So do what you can, in the time that you have. Do it well, to the best of your ability. As the sun sets on your day, be happy with what you have accomplished and prepare to move on to the promise of tomorrow. 

What, dear friends, did your day entail today?

Check it out at and let me know what you think. I would appreciate the feedback.

Happy Weekend!

Technology Woes

Pardon my lengthy break from this blog and the majority of technology in general. My computer crashed several weeks ago, so all I've been able to accomplish has been what I've been able to do on my phone (which hasn't been much). My new computer has arrived (hence this post), so I am in the process of trying to determine what is still here from the Cloud and what I need to figure out how to transfer. Either way, it is awesome to have a working computer once again. Yay! It has reiterated my knowledge of just how technologically inept I truly am:(

In the midst of all of this, my website needing updating as it was an old platform that didn't support a security certificate or much of what I wanted to accomplish and, therefore, I let it expire late August. Once my computer died, I had to get help creating the new one in order to ensure it is functional as soon as possible.

So, please watch for my new and improved website launching soon! I can't wait to share it with you.

Happy weekend, all!

Never Forget

As we mark 20 years since the devastating tragedy and grief that hit our world, always remember those who died and those who sacrificed for others. May God bless them and all of their families left to grieve.

ALWAYS remember...NEVER forget.
