Happy #2016!!! – #Resolutions, Lists, and Goals….Oh My!

Happy New Year!!!  Glad you stopped by, and hope you’re enjoying the new digs.

This time of year is generally earmarked for resolutions and setting goals.  Some years I follow suit.  Others I take life as it comes.  This year I’m going with the former.

I found an interesting Writer’s Digest post, and decided to create a list of 10 resolutions for 2016.  The list consists of 5 personal items and 5 focused on writing.  Throughout the year, I’ll post about my progress. But for right now, I have goosebumps on all the wonderful things  to come.

These are in no particular order: Continue reading “Happy #2016!!! – #Resolutions, Lists, and Goals….Oh My!”


Merry Christmas!!!


For a child is born to us, a son is given to us…. (Isa. 9:6)

May this holiday be filled with laughter and cheer with loved ones near and far.  And may we remember the spirit and love of the precious Gift from our Heavenly Father.  Peace be unto you all.

This is my last post for 2015, but great things are ahead for 2016.  Over the next few days I will be working to update the look and feel of the site, and to make strides to provide more great content.  This is an exciting next step for me, and I hope you will enjoy.

1.  39th Birthday

Ask most teenagers about the age 40 and they will tell you that’s old.  And I must admit that back then I thought that too.  It’s amazing how the perspective changes as we grow older.  Now 40 seems young with a lot of life ahead.

To commemorate the close of my 30s, I didn’t want a big party or anything lavish.  Instead I wanted relaxation.  Just doing something that made me feel good.  The big day was celebrated with a wonderful spa massage, an excellent Mexican meal, and concluded with watching back-to-back movies. 

The next day I went to a nearby park to write.  The scenery was so beautiful.  A blue sky so warm and crisp that it looked like a postcard.  The grass even had the most magnificent color of green with hints of yellow dandelions here and there.  It was so moving that it made me feel that God decided to give me an extra birthday gift. All in all, I’m ready for 40 and plan to celebrate for 365 days. 🙂
