This is Nalu, my little princess. She's not afraid to strike a pose.
I try to count my blessings every day. Gratitude helps to ward off jealousy, worry, and all kinds of other nasties. This Christmas, I have so much to be thankful for, it's almost ridiculous. I have a job I like, that leaves me time for writing--that alone feels like nothing short of a miracle. I have a novel, completed, of which I am extremely proud. I have great hope for finding a publisher for the novel, in spite of a recent rejection. I have thicker skin than I used to, no longer finding rejections devastating as I once did. I have a Florida vacation starting on Friday, with my in-laws who I adore. I have parents who will properly spoil my princess while we're away.
Finally, the blessing that is almost too good to believe, I have a baby growing in my belly.
What are some of your blessings? Tell me or just tell yourself. They're there if you look for them.
Nalu and I wish you all a holiday season full of blessings, gratitude, and joy!
