Life Happens

Can you believe it's July 7th already? I sure can't It's been forever since I've been on this blog. I haven’t been Pinterest or Face Book. I even forgot my password to this site! lol Well, so much has happened in the past few months. Gary made it through his surgery! I did have a daily update on my face book during that scary time. He starts back to work tomorrow, and is practically back to normal and getting better by the day. I already have a hard time keeping up with him and he's not even 100% yet!

Our Japan family is back in the states! We enjoyed two weeks with the sweet loving family in our home. Although it was a challenge with a recovering neat freak husband and three active grandbabies 4, 3, and 2, I wouldn't have traded that time for anything in the world! :)

My Dyslexic book did not make it past the top 30 in the self publishing contest. So, now onto figuring out how to finance the publishing. I know God has that all figured out, so I'm leaving it in his hands.

The book I'm working on now is moving along just fine. Gary read some of it and inspired me to go a slightly different direction with it. I'm very excited about how it's coming together. The book is actually all there now. Twelve chapters, over 26,000 words. I'm tweaking it and filling in the conversations to make it come 'alive'.

I'm already organizing my next book in my mind. Gary bought me the book series written by Jane Austen. You know, the classics Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion? Believe it or not, I've not read any of those books. I was not a reader growing up. I think I explained it some on my website, God has used Gary in so many ways! He's used him to open my love of reading and encourage my love of Writing. And God chose to keep Gary on this earth a little longer to be by my side! We have such an awesome God! I'm so glad He's in control!
