One of 2013’s Biggest Blessings!

As the evening winds down, taking 2013 into history, I’ve been thinking about what a remarkable year it’s been for me–filled with wonderful things and not-so-wonderful things, but on balance, a much better year than I would ever have expected at this stage of my life.

In February, I was pronounced cured of cancer, a blessing that would have been enough to make it a good year all by itself, but then that was followed in fairly rapid succession by so many more good things: the birth of my first grandson, Kaelen; the publication of my first novel, Wake-Robin Ridge, the publication of my first book of poetry, Summer Magic; my daughter, her husband, and Kaelen moving from San Diego back to Florida, just a few hours’ drive from me…how can you complain about any of the less happy events when you’ve been given riches like that, all in one year? I’m sure not going to.

Instead, I’m going to lay out a few goals for 2014 and keep on keepin’ on. I will turn 70 in March, and I plan to keep writing, blogging, painting, working in my garden, spending time with everyone I love, including my granddaughter, Tabitha, and the aforementioned grandbaby, Kaelen, and making sure to laugh every day. I can’t wait to see what this year brings!

Happy New Year to each of you, and may 2014 fill your lives with joy and prosperity!

    • From your lips to God’s ear! And with your able help, too. I couldn’t have finished Wake-Robin Ridge without you, and I’m looking forward to working with you again this year. Message to 2014: Be on the lookout for Caitlin, too…she’s got NaNoWriMo tucked under her belt…can a published book be far behind?

  3. Marcia, please have this frame and put on a wall. I have been your friend through your blessed journey, but looking at it from your perspective, it is an amazing statement of “LIFE”.

    • Thank you, Felix. You have been a blessing in my life for a good while now, and one I am grateful for more than you know. When I started writing this post, I realized once again how lucky I am! I have wonderful friends and family, and have done and learned many things over the years. And best part? It ain’t over yet!!! Who knows what’s coming in 2014? Hopefully my second book, more new and wonderful friends, more time spent with family and loved ones…so much to look forward to! And more trips to visit YOU, mi amigo! Happy New Year!
