It’s quiet around the Hoffman Haus tonight. My son and hubby are already asleep. I think they were both in bed before nine. We don’t really party around here. 😉
I’ve been thinking about this year ending, as the new one is about to begin, and I feel so blessed. I don’t know how else to say it. My life is far from perfect, but I have the things that I need and some of my wants too. I have a beautiful family and extraordinary friends. I may have terrible luck in life, but I’ve always had a shoulder to cry on when I’ve needed it, and plenty of love and support. I don’t think a person could ask for much more than that.
I read a great post by author Delle Jacobs called Heavenly Hell: Where All Serious Writers Go. It’s a “must share.” Delle Jacobs is a fun writer and has a special place in my heart. Long ago, she sent me a “virtual” kick in the pants when I REALLY needed it, and I will always be grateful to her because of it. 🙂 She and I have never met, but the words she sent me, have made a lasting impression.
There have been so many wonderful authors that have come into my life this past year, and even more so as of recently. I’ve made some extraordinary friends along the way. It doesn’t matter to me if they’ve sold one book or one million, it’s the kindness that I’ve been shown that makes these ladies and gentlemen priceless to me. I appreciate all the words of encouragement that they have given as well the firmer pieces of advice. I feel as though I’m slowly becoming a part of the writing community. It’s a blessing to know that I am not alone. I am so grateful for all the support I’ve received.
A very special thanks to all my amazing WordPress buddies. May all your plot bunnies be productive ones! 😉
