'Tis the season to be jolly...

Let me tell you, I'm living that phrase from the well-loved Christmas carol!

Although life has thrown many different opportunities—and, not to mention, a good number of curves—my way, the one constant since I was a little girl has been the knowledge that I wanted to be a writer.

I started scribbling stories well before I knew my ABCs—and I'll bet you can just imagine the trouble that gave my parents when I asked them to read my efforts.  LOL

After I learned how to use the alphabet to make spelling words, I knew the only thing better than being a writer would be becoming an author so I could share my stories with people outside my elementary school.  That wish came true a few years ago, and with two more books out this year and the recent sale of another Flagman's Folly story, I feel as though Santa came early to my house!  This explains why I'm so happy this holiday season.  J 

Along with the above, I have a lot to be thankful for, including the fact you've taken time out of your extra-busy schedule to stop by and read this post. 

I hope you'll also take a minute, maybe by sitting down with a glass of eggnog or a cup of tea and a cookie or two, to stop and think about what made your year wonderful.  And please share that with us!

To you and yours, I wish happy holidays and a happy, healthy, safe, and prosperous year ahead.

All my best, always,

I am having alot of trouble getting to the jolly point. I'm actually wanting the next 2 weeks to be over. I sit alone and that's it. There's no family, no friends, no presents on the tree, no cookies, no goodies. It'a bad bad time of the year for me. I hope everyone else a really great time though.

Cathy - with the economy, I think many are cutting back on the gift-giving and goodies.

The holidays can be a mixed bag for so many, but a lot of folks get satisfaction from doing volunteer work at churches, soup kitchens, etc. And/or from buying small treats to pamper themselves.

Then there are others who just look forward to January--which is always good for getting a fresh start in a new year.

I hope you have a happy and healthy 2013.
