Looking back on my life the past couple of three years, it’s been a veritable roller coaster. Things are finally on a somewhat even keel, for now anyway.

While my life is far from perfect, I do have more than my fair share of blessings. With Thanksgiving this past week, one always seems to be more aware of those said blessings. I gripe about my boss, a lot, but yet I have a job. My truck is an older model and could use some work, but it’s paid for and runs well enough to get me back and forth to work each day. My girls are with me and we are still managing to face each day. I have cherished friends who are the best support system a person could ask for. There’s my up and coming book, and the second of the series is in progress.

My book is now in the hands of the beta readers. They will tell me what I need to know to improve my book. I picked four people whose opinions I value, and who I know will tell me what I need to know, rather than tell me what they think I want to hear.

While waiting for the feedback of the betas, I will be spending time on Book 2. It’s actually coming along nicely and I’m starting to get a bit excited about it. I’m kind of a plotting pantser… I have an outline … a general outline at best, but the ending of the book hasn’t come to me yet. I have no doubt that it will let me find a stopping point that will lead to the third book of the series. What was that? Was that my publisher cringing? LOL

Regardless, it will come together eventually. Today, I’m not worried about it. I’m focusing on the good in my life. When you focus on the good in your life, the bad tends to fade into the background. It doesn’t disappear, but it’s no longer insurmountable. There’s hope, there always is.

Blessings to you, and yours. Till next week,
