I have deadlines. More deadlines than I should have, truth be told. So what am I doing? Am I writing? Am I narrating? Am I doing a little post-Christmas housecleaning? Am I sitting here thinking about tacos?
I did start out with good intentions, mind you. Stepped into the isolation chamber to narrate, but discovered I still had the kind of non-sexy morning voice that just makes everyone want to clear their throats for me.
How was your Christmas? Did you have a chance to catch up to anyone special over the weekend? I know this holiday can be filled with blessings for some and filled with heartache for others. I pray you received a taste of joy in the celebration of the birth of Christ. One of the things I’ve committed to do more of lately is praying, and although I pray for my readers all the time, is there anything, in particular, you’d like me to pray about? I’d love to add your name to my prayer journal. Email me directly HERE.
It’s Thursday. Well, it was when I started writing this, anyway. So even though it’s after midnight and you won’t be getting this until Friday (Christmas Eve Eve, for those of us who are – I mean, aren’t – panicking!), in my book, it still counts as a Thursday post!
Here are 3 things I’m thankful for this fine Thursday…
Yep. I’m sick. December hit me like a ton of bricks. Hit me hard. Took me out at the knees and is now kicking me while I’m down. And…it has also stolen my voice.
This is not good if you make a living as a narrator or voice actor.
Oh! But check out the snow on my website!!! (Look! A Squirrel!)
First off, let me just say that if you experienced even half the gratitude I did over Thanksgiving, you and I make one GRATEFUL BUNCH!
And to thank you for being such lovely readers and all around awesome people (because you ARE, and I’m grateful for every one of you who read my words and keep coming back for more!), I’ve got a few different ways I’m showing my appreciation of YOU!

So tomorrow is July 29th, the “official” due date of our first grandchild. Midwife Magnifique (the best!) smiles kindly and says, “He’s still high.” Daughter Darling smiles grimly and says (under her breath), “Are YOU high?” Just kidding. She’s extremely serene about this whole thing….
Grandma – that’s me! – smiles pleasantly and says nothing…
Last month, we had a family reunion in the Midwest, and although this wasn’t our first, it’s been a very long time since we’ve had one, so for many who came, it was a “first time” reunion. Read more
It’s just around the corner, my friends, and I’m excited and nervous and wondering how you’ll feel about this long-awaited new release coming to you this month…Book 3 of The Gustafson Girls: Phoebe and the Rock of Ages!
