Soooo excited about this new design for the Heaven and Earth series I’m writing. Can you spot all the symbols of the Greek gods?
It’s funny I’m getting into this new series and the research has been relentless! I’m eager to get started but every time I’m about to get started another branch comes up. I’m hoping to get all the research done by the first of the year. As time progresses I’ll share a little more with you.
It’s been a little while since I lasted posted and in that time I’ve had an anniversary, Thanksgiving happened and just last night a new member of my family arrived. Little Grace Marie Washington came into the world at 7:27 pm, weighing in at a healthy 7 pounds, 8 ounces, just a little love bug.
I’ve thought a lot about blessings and what I’m thankful for. Obviously family, health, food and shelter but becoming happier, learning more about my own capacity for love, tolerance, fortitude and compassion. I decided about a month ago to begin paying it forward and have had a lot of fun figuring out new ways to do it. I aim for three a day, trying to impact another human being in a positive way and make their day brighter. Since I started I’ve worried less, felt better about myself and others and take everything a little less seriously. The drama is fading and that’s a great, great thing. I forgot that feeling, you just have to get out of your own head and into another’s to do it.
I’d like to step it up a notch and make an impact more significantly. I was thinking maybe taking senior photos for any kids that have not yet gotten any or trying to put together dresses for prom. I’d love to hear your suggestions on how to impact someone’s life or if you know anyone that may need some help. What would make you smile, even for a minute and brighten your day?
