|Inspired reading and writing is a gift to us all. The human mind envelops all that it encounters in either a concious or subconsious way. It is important to every man or woman, or child, that his
environment be filled with both reminders and rememdies. This past year
has been both reminder and remedy for me.
It has been a reminder that life is like
a candle. It has a flame that all too often is put out in the liquid of life.
Therefore, we should live each minute as
if it were our last. Love with all your
heart and laugh often. Never look at the faults of our loved ones. Instead,
concentrate on their attributes. All too often they leave us before we have
an opportunity to tell them how they fill the voids in our souls.
I am reminded that each moment of life is a gift and a legacy. We can use our moments strictly for ourselves. If we are wise, as we surely are, we can use our moments to enhance the moments of others. Use each precious second to encourage, to share of yourself and your
experiences with life, to build a bridge
for some "one" to cross the chasm, and
to avoid the pitfalls that they will surely encounter along life's path. Leave a written document of discovery and victory for the treasure hunters.
Leave a treasure map for the adventurer
who likes surprises. Life will surely
bring many surprises.
In being a wife, a mother, a daughter,
a sister and friend, much is expected. In being a person much is required. We
all have different capacities. Not all of us are gallon buckets. Some are pints and others are quarts. In whatever
capacity we serve,... FILL IT UP!! Use
your full capacity!! You will only come this way (Live that is!) ONCE!
Being a writer is something that is inside of me. It has always been a part of who I am. Because of my experiences with Publish America and The Author's Den I have been able to share my experiences with countless others. It is
a reward that I am grateful for every day. I can reach far more hearts than I ever dreamed of touching in my small circle of the world. My community is world wide today, where a few years ago it was limited to where I stood at any given moment.
While reality has come to the television
screens, I believe that writers have shared reality with their readers for
as long as there has been communication.
Heiroglyphics told stories in picture. Cave men did the same. Nothig can be more real than the art of communicating
the stories of life and how we can overcome our challenges each day.
I want to thank my publisher, and the Author's Den for allowing me to share
my successes with others who might be
searching for answers and looking for those "Lights On in the Window"
