"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:18 RV
critiques and edits
I'm in crunch-mode. I leave for the ACFW Conference four weeks from today (yippee!). And I have so much I need to finish still. Loads and loads of editing. My One-Sheet needs some blurb enhancement. I've barely scratched the surface with creating a pitch. And changes to a side story needs brain-storming before I can polish up my proposal. I'm so thankful I chose to get a partial critique by someone who knows way more than me. I feel confidence I never imagined. I may be a newbie, but I am ready to wrangle this story into readiness!
My silky-skinned toddler, Bitsy, is growing up so fast. I seize every snuggle I can get from her. Soft arms around my neck, legs longer by the day, tiny sweet voice coming from a spitfire of a girl. I love it!!
peaceful days and august rush
Our days have recently become more peaceful than they have been in a long time. It's been lovely. And August is our most productive school month of the year, so my kids have been knocking it out of the park most days. Whew. (That gives me better editing and conference prep time, too.)
This weekend, we have plans to meet up with one of my oldest friends. She lives states away and we rarely get to see each other (though a girl-trip to Hawaii is on our bucket list!). On her way home from a family vacation, she'll be a mere three hours from us, and we have plans to make the drive so our kids can meet, and we can see each other for the first time in six years! I love friends like this. Friends that last a life-time...
What are you thankful for today?
