365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 181

HELLO BLOG WORLD!! I am exhilarated today for you see, I heard back from my editor and she says I did a superb job on my first round of edits. Umm let’s see, she also congratulated me on a job well done and well, that just about covers it 🙂 Now you get my source of excitement? So I’m sharing an excerpt of my book on this post. I hope you enjoy it and leave me some feed back. As I mentioned on another post, I cannot wait to share it with you. I will have trivia quizzes and other contests where you’ll be able to win a free copy of SALSA! The Taste of Life. Happy Friday!!!

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 172

I was just telling Esther that God doesn’t ask us to do the impossible like wake up every morning and run the universe. “ Ok, kids, today you will align the planets, make the firmament firm and run things for me. Good luck guys!” No, His ways are so simple: “ Today kids, I want you to TRUST ME and be content and thankful no matter what your circumstances look like. Think you can do that?” No, we are more interested in helping Him run things. Bleh :/ He gives us the easiest job and we botch it up by trying to do it all ourselves. Man are we dumb!!!  HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER and longest day of 2012!

 

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 160

I am thrilled to announce to you my amazing readers that I have just completed the first round of edits for my upcoming book, SALSA! THE TASTE OF LIFE. I beat my June 15 deadline too! That’s why I wasn’t posting on my blog. I never was a procrastinator. Why live life worrying about what you know you have to do? My motto: Just do it! That way when it’s done you can breathe easy. Ok, ok, I’m not trying to get preachy here 🙂

A couple of day ago I finally  met  with my editor via the cell phone. She is such a wonderful person to work with. Funny, I had always feared working with an editor; I seriously had made it into a nightmare in my head. Now that I actually have one who is working with me to help me fine tune my work and helping me grow in the craft, I truly do appreciate the work editors do.

This post was for catching you up on the latest developments of my book. Since it’s Friday, I shall leave you with some funny pictures to start off your week-end. Have fun it’s summer!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 135

In this new place there is no room for bitterness. Bitterness is a dead man’s grave-clothes. I have cast off all my grave-clothes  for good. The last vestiges, which hung on to me by a thread, have fallen at my feet and bitterness is eradicated once and for all. From here on out I see ahead only as far as the lamp I carry allows me to. I have caught glimpses of my future. I carry with me postcards , snap shots of it and when I look at those, I smile because I know I’m headed there for sure. Perhaps that is my only certainty in this new place; my assurance of a better future than the current present and that is enough to comfort me and keep me on this path that is taking me there. Every sunset I see differently now. Sunsets now mean that I have overcome another day. This day has passed into tomorrow. The sun setting on today can only mean one thing: That my future draws closer and that is exciting.

Who awaits me in my future?

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 130

What would I do without Pinterest? 🙂 Happy Hump day everyone!

 

 

 

 

I believe in family meals so much. What better way to reconnect with everyone at the end of the day with a nice home-made meal. I say turn the TV and gadgets off for the sacred, intimate moments shared at the dinner table. That’s what we do around my home.

I also believe strongly in teaching kids responsibility and the value of work early on in their lives. They’ll thank you for it one day.
