Sad and Happy

“Thinking about the ending year or the new year.”

I’m going to talk a little about the end and the beginning.

2015 can only be a better year for me; at least that’s my prayer.  I’d thought to have the new cover for the conclusion in my series by Sunday.  It’s not here, yet, but it is still 2014.

It wasn’t all bad news for me in 2014; I did learn to format and get my books back online as an Indie Publisher.  You’ve all already heard most all of my bad news, so I won’t repeat it here.  Except maybe the auto accident I was in on this past Friday.  No one was hurt, but I don’t know if my car will survive.  If not, that will leave me without transportation to begin 2015.  I don’t know how I’ll be able to spend time with my mother.

I hope to have several more publications in the coming year and will strive to find the time and motivation to get some marketing done.  I enjoyed a wonderful time with my estranged daughter and her new boyfriend at a holiday dinner she prepared for us on Saturday.  I love this new man in her life.  I envy her.  She has everything I’ve ever wanted.  They have such a happy and loving relationship.  And her new roommate is quite a lovable character, too!

    Oh,no! You love that little car. I hope it’s fixable. And I’m wishing you a much better 2015, although that dinner with your daughter sounds like the best part of 2014…and one you won’t be ready to leave behind anytime soon. 🙂

      Yes! My dinner with Shannon was the BEST! You’re right. I DO love my little car. And I’m focused on getting it fixed. He’s such an unhappy little car right now. 😦 I’ll find the money somewhere.


  2. I know you have had a few hard knocks this year,Janette, but you have come through more, and harder, obstacles…my money is on you coming through with new elements to your life.
    Don’t envy your daughter; be glad and pray that it all continues as well as it seems now.What more could a mother want for her child? Life has not passes you by by a long shot!
    See, your daughter can no longer be described as estranged to you.
    I am sorry about your car and you not getting to your mother.I hope that there is a good solution to that problem very soon and that you have a wonderful 2015!

      Thank you, Tonette! I am so happy my daughter has found a good caring man to love. 🙂 They are few and far between. I wish them many years of enviable happiness! You’re right! I’d never thought of her as no longer being estranged from me! Things will work out, God made me a survivor, I learned that many years ago. It’s tough, but someone has to do it! LOL! I’ve touched base with momma’s Care Center to keep her busy while I’m not there and I’ll be back soon!


  3. I am glad that everyone is alright.

    I hope that this next year is a much better one for you.

    sorry to hear about the vehicle incident. Glad you were not badly injured. Hope the insurance co. treats you fairly and promptly and you get some wheels very soon.
    Wish you the best for the new year — in your personal life and writing career.

    Thank goodness nobody was hurt in your recent accident! I agree with Tonette – don’t be envious of your daughter, be happy for her. I’m so glad she’s not estranged any more. And look forward to a year of new delights.

    New delights are on the way, Patricia! My daughter did my grandmother’s heart good when she said she was thinking of children in a couple years. Thank you for your thoughts on the lack of injuries. 🙂
