Week From Hades

Last week was brutal. Everything that could have been thrown at me, was lobed my way.
While my husband was away spending time with his parents, I had a call and letter from my oldest son's teacher, a slap on the wrist at work (really long story!), one kid home for 3 days straight, reinjured my shoulder, etc, etc, etc....And it really did go on to the point I was ready to snap and actually did so a couple of times.

Then Saturday I saw a migraine aura while shopping in a local clothing store. That scare alone made everything else
Water under the bridge.

The best things that happened all week were:
1)  I got The Bookstore Lady edits done and back to my agent.
2)  I had some great laughs with my kids.
3)  I had some wine and great laughs with some friends.

The bad stuff, I've decided, no longer matters.
The people who tried so hard to make me look bad, they no longer matter.
The determination to become a writer and get my work published. THAT'S what matters.
My kids. THEY matter.
I MATTER.

I know what is in my heart and on my lips.
To those who believe in me, thank you. I will always do my best not to let you down.
You matter to me as well.
Thank you.

    BLOG CHALLENGE from Fantasy Writer Guy!

    Too many young people are packing up their instruments because they perceive that musical pursuits are in conflict with more legitimate career pursuits, or otherwise losing sight of their musical dreams. Too many beautiful songs will not get written! Please help me try to change that:

    Please blog about the most meaningful musical experience you’ve had in your life; an event, song, album, band or concert perhaps. Maybe it was music of your own creation. Anything in the realm of music which changed you or inspired you or was very special in some way: Your own proof that music is a positive and vital part of the human experience.

    Please include the following links in your post so that your readers may also have the opportunity to participate!
