HAPPY CHRISTMAS!   Leave a comment

This starts out sad but there’s a happy ending, I promise!

It’s been a rough year for my family. Our 14 year-old Tortie died in April and her last few months were emotionally painful because up until the end she was alert and eating well and being her usual Tortie self. Her big personality and intelligence made her unique. I still miss her.

A beloved brother-in-law died unexpectedly, another family member had to be hospitalized and the stress of trying to make ends meet made it doubly worse.

I got a literary agent! And if you follow me on social media you know what a happy surprise this was! (Thank you, Nicole Resciniti from The Seymour Agency!)

But because of all the things going on, I couldn’t celebrate the way I wanted to.

The end of the year brightened a bit.

CHIP AND DALE CHRISTMAS

I got support from some great friends, and even though it’s going to be rough for a while I have this face to enjoy:

My kitten is now a year old!

And I want to say to all those who wished me well or who helped my days become less glum by giving me support, THANK YOU!

THANK YOU CATA special thank you goes to my CP @Married2ARod and to my in-person writer’s group (who are supportive not only of my writing but of me and my family).

THANK YOU!

I hope all of you reading this have the very merriest of holidays for you and yours!

DOCTOR WHO MERRY CHRISTMAS

And a very Happy New Year!

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s to 2016!
