Celebrating the Small Things

What a whirlwind week it's been! Up one minute and down the next. It's been a roller coaster for sure.

If you read my ISWG blog post this month, you saw where I was on the rejection team this week. Yea, and more have come in, so... NOT thrilling.

BUT!

Everyone was right! I'm not going to give up. I'm going to keep going and and keep trying and keep writing.

So what am I celebrating this month? I'm celebrating because I had a burst of encouragement from all my wonderful readers. You guys are great! I can't thank you enough for you cheers and hugs.

Thank you!

Aslo, I'd like to share with you my son's success in reading. He has dyslexia and has had a hard time reading. But this week, he has read two new readers and he's so proud of himself. I am too!

Have an AMAZING weekend, beautiful guys and dolls!

Thank you Vikki, for hosting this blog hop. I truly love reading about the small celebrations in life. It keeps a smile on my face and a thankful spirit in my heart:)

  2. Glad you feel reinvigorated with your writing. Yay! I worked at a college in disability services for years and years and saw many bright, hard-working students with dyslexia have great success. Sounds like your son is seeing that same kind of success-- that's great.

    1. Yea, I found a pretty little package of index cards. They tempted me. I surrendered to their calling...

    I know how happy you are for your son, my husband and both sons are dyslexic. But my youngest really tries hard. He wants to be a reader like his mom, and has made some progress...I too, am so proud!

  7. I consider rejection the writer badge of honor. You're producing and submitting, that's a great thing.

    Yay for your son's progress!

    Have a great weekend.
