Though For The Day

I love collecting thoughts. I found this one and wanted to share!

If you don't know where you are going
How will you know when you get there?

Isn't this so true? Too many of us don't have a plan and just let life lead us to where we end up. Is that all bad? No. A lot of times we end up better off than if we had planned our life. But, that isn't always the case.

Do you have a goal? Something special you want to accomplish? A favorite place you'd like to see again? I'm sure most of you do. I do. I have found that sometimes we just need to make a plan, follow the plan, and hopefully nothing comes up to way lay us and keep us from getting to where we want to be.

So, I'm recommending that you try taking over your life - at least somewhat. I'm not saying don't be flexible because with life, if we aren't flexible we will miss a lot of things along the way. But, set your sights on something wonderful that you want. Pursue it. Work towards it, and who knows, you might find you can be in charge of your own destiny.

Another of my favorite thoughts is:

If it is to be, it's up to me.

Happy Reading!

Hello Again

Hello Again!

I'm thrilled to announce I have a couple of stories getting really close to getting published. That's always a great feat for me.

The first one is The Mountain View Café. I've been working on this story for several years now. I have to admit I keep putting it on the back burner and then keep bringing it back out. I decided it is now or never. It's a story that I started years ago when my husband and I purchased our 1955 Chevy Bel Air and went to some car shows. It was fun meeting others who enjoyed classic cars, and I think one of the funnest things is the Cruise-In where everyone drives up and down the main road to show off their cars.  It gave me the idea for this story.

What took me so long, you ask? Well, the world kept changing. When I first wrote the story I wanted it set after the Viet Nam War. Course, that was so many years ago that most don't think about it much. Now the war is in the gulf - Irag, Iran, etc, so I decided to rewrite and bring it more current.

It's getting really close to being ready to publish. I have a tentative cover made and hopefully I can finally hit the button to send it to print. Watch for it.

I'll talk about the second one in a later post.

Happy Reading!
