"Cold, cold, cold, cold." Disney Movie, Frozen
Maybe it's a good thing....the best way to start a new year....huddled with family....chatting, laughing,,,,taking time with each other, watching movies, playing board games, reminiscing.
Life's good. I feel it right down to my toes and in every part of my being. Maybe it's b/c I feel incredibly loved, or maybe life with all it's tough stuff has evened out and played out well these last couple of years. Whatever it is, 2014 is going to be another incredible year. I'm grateful for......
-our home.....warm, safe, tons of creature comforts
-family and friends who show they care in big ways and small, who are always there in my corner and me in theirs. It's living with their kindness that pushes me forward to want to give back and help someone else find their way.
-Twisted Innocence, positive reviews have been coming in. And the people I wrote about, the little girl, and the detective's family, love the book. They said I captured the characters bang-on. Makes me glad I pushed for the truth and wrote it in this little book.
-Beginnings. There's something neat and exciting about them. New year. New beginnings. New adventures. New purpose. It feels like I'm standing on the threshold, catching a breath and preparing to step into a whole new experience.
-Mostly, knowing that I don't have to go it alone....He's there, already charting out everything and reaching out a hand for me to step out again on paths unknown....and to not be afraid. Love that. Love that every day of every year is remarkable b/c He's on the journey with me. I look at the trees, hills and nature and think, okay....if He's done all that, what He and I do together is bonus.
Happy 2014, Guys....It's gonna be an amazing year!
