Fruits of Choices Made in the Past Year

What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment.  And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new.  Right now.  ~Author Unknown

The quote I have chosen echoes my philosophy on life – it is all about choices, and we are where we are at the moment because of the choices we make.

But this week is supposed to be about the past year and what happened during it.  LOTS has happened in my life in 2013! 

I became the Vice President of my RWA chapter at the beginning of the year

I’ve also been the Speaker Chair for OLYRWA

I received my FIRST contract offer for my romantic fantasy, CONNECTIONS, which is a trilogy, in May

I became the Tuesday Fox here in July

I succeeded in transferring my momma from a nursing home in Louisiana to a Care Center near me in Washington State

It’s a short list, and I’m sure there’s something I missed, but trust me; the happening’s in my life have made me a very busy lady!  :))

      Thank you, Tonette! :)) I’m glad I was INVITED to join 4f1h! It totally upped my confidence level about my writing ability! Things are busy right now and I don’t see that “breather” anywhere in the near future. Most of the time I’m at the Care Center with my momma (I’m there right now). So far I’m managing to get my writing done, but woe be my housework! LOL! I have found a support group to join… more time taken “/ And now the edits are beginning on the second in my trilogy…

      But I have faith! Life is good and I am thankful!

    So loooove the quote, Janette, and as for the length of the list …. it doesn’t matter it’s not the quantity, but quality, although quality seems the wrong word here 😉 …. Congratulations on all that you have achieved!
    May 2014 bring you many more “wonderful moments”.
