~~ Writing Up a Storm ~~

This past weekend and most of Monday was spent writing one story....Just one story, consisting of approximately 920 words for an upcoming Chicken Soup for the Soul book.

Sometimes thoughts become sentences and just flow onto the pages....and other times, it takes hours to get one word that portrays the right feelings. When I finally decided it was the best it could be and I clicked on that "submit" button, I was so overjoyed and exhausted, I flopped on the couch and immediately fell asleep!

I really, really want this one to get accepted.......I worked so hard on it.....

** Speaking of working hard and being exhausted ** I just realized it was past midnight when I posted this. It is now Tuesday, July 28th.....my oldest son Scott's birthday!! MANY years ago, he was born in Ft. Bliss, Texas. It was a difficult delivery, but I was so young and naive, I didn't even think to worry. I just foolishly believed all doctors were god-like and that everything would be just fine. Fortunately, he didn't have any lasting problems.......and eventually I was okay, too. Happy Birthday, Scott! You have always made your mom proud!
