Monday Morning Gratitudes

The first Monday of the new year! 
   So much to be grateful for; so much to look forward to. 
Looking back with a heart filled with thankfulness; 
   looking forward with anticipation:

Looking back:

The release of TWO books: thank you Eddie and Sharon!

  •      The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman: a novel of hope shining through the darkness--                women's fiction filled with suspense and romance.
  •      Hog Insane, the first in a new series: a mystery introducting the characters Denton and Alex              Davies; a fun series touched with a dab of romance.
Immeasurable help from so many in the launch of The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman. Thank you, Wanda and Chrissy and Stevie and Tara and many, many more! So thankful for how my Facebook author page grew in just days! Thanks, Ashley and Crystal, for the encouraging boost!

From the depths of my heart: thankfulness for all the wonderful reviews received about The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman!

Watching my baby grandson grow: getting to be with him so much and loving it! 
Thank you, God, for the wonderful blessing of having not one, but three grandsons. I don't take it lightly!

Finally, God's help through 2013. So many trials, so many problems, but I've come through them all--never due to my own abilities, but all due to God's gracious help and love for me. Thank you, God!


Looking forward:

Excited to think I'm striving toward more publication this year! Hard work ahead? Oh, yes! Still loving it though.

Excited to do the official launch of Hog Insane in February; such a fun series!

Anxious to see what reviews Hog Insane will receive in the days ahead!

Anticipating visits with grandsons and helping them grow to be strong, good men.

Peering ahead and trusting God for the strength I need every step of this 2014 journey. Whatever's ahead, I don't know; but he does. He sees what's in store for me tomorrow; he will take me through.



Blessings!
