Emotional roller coaster

March 26, 2013

The last two weeks have been an emotional roller coaster. We welcomed our first grandbaby twelve days ago! Three days later we lost my twenty-four year old niece. The morning after I flew back from the funeral, I woke up with a terrible cold/flu – thank goodness it only lasted a few days, but talk about feeling crappy! Then Spring dumps over ten inches of snow on us. It sure is beautiful, but it makes me want to hunker in, curled up in front of the fire.

But – I have a newsletter to finish, a contest to judge, and I desperately need to get back to my creative space to work on Mike Dawson’s story!

So, I drag myself out of bed yesterday morning, and the first thing I do is check email, then pull up the amazon site to check the rankings of Passion’s Race and Sisters Of Spirit – and what do I see? Passion’s Race is now available in PAPERBACK!!! Can you imagine the thrill as I did the Snoopy dance around my office?

Such mixed emotions, the highs and lows of life coming together in an odd blend of events! I tell myself to take a deep breath, to be thankful for the wonders of life, to cherish the memories of Jamie, and to celebrate one more step on my publication journey!

Breathe with me, won’t you? Until next time, hugs – Christine

  1. Christine, What a roller coaster you have been on. . . . congratulations again on the birth of your grandbaby! I look forward to that myself one day. I am so sorry to hear about your niece. It’s one thing to lose someone close to you who has lived a long, full life. It’s entirely another to loose someone so young.

    Excellent news Passion’s Race being available in paperback! :-))) Now get back into that creative space and write more for us!!

  2. Lisa,
    Thanks. I attended OWFI, Oklahoma Writers Federation Inc., writers conference this weekend and got my creative edge back. Working with other talented writers spurs renewed energy and my muse is sitting on my ‘write’ shoulder.
    I’m ready to resume and finish Mike Dawson’s story!!
    You’ll have another powerful story to read soon.
    Hugs – Christine
