Little fish.... big pond

Being a little fish is rough. First day of high school, first kiss, first day on the job, first love, first day of marriage, first baby, second baby, first day you start your business, first time you price a customers job, first novel... It's never comfortable. I know it's so cliche', but the older I get the more I realize I know nothing! And growing pains are just that -- painful yet wonderful.

As I watch my two love bug boys playing trucks and the clouds float by in the sky, I'm reminded it's okay to feel completely crazy when embarking on a new adventure. I don't need to be afraid of the unknown. My novel won't please everyone, but already, it's made a difference in the enjoyment of people's lives (if not taken over all their free time for two days -- muahaha).

And as I wait, come what may April 27th, I'm reminded of the important things in life. God's mercy, family, love and loyalty. I'm doing what I dreamed... loved by the most wonderful man and husband, being a mommy, raising my boys, making a difference and adding my creative touch to the lives around me.

If only my pep talk would help with my anxiousness. *smile*

Have a great day!
