In the spirit of Follow Friday, may I recommend my critique partner, Jeannie Campbell’s Character Therapy blog? Jeannie is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She does mad assessments for fictional characters on Tuesdays and posts a Therapeutic Thought on Thursdays. She’s venturing on a cross country move this weekend (her second in one year) and will have to spend two and a half weeks without her baby girl. Please keep her in your prayers as her family makes such a huge transition.
My 5th grade class is sneaking inside my heart and taking hold. They might be a little (who am I kidding…a lot) high maintenance, but they sure are lovable. There’s this one girl. She’s like my secret soul mate. We sit behind my desk and read her stories together. I teach her all kinds of advanced writing techniques, like deep POV and stimulus-response. It makes her feel special. Talented. Grown-up.
At daycare, my son hit a little girl twice and made her cry. This is no way to treat a lady. He’s one year old and already poking at boundary lines to see who’s boss. Top of my prayer list: guidance and wisdom. Ryan and I have no clue what we’re doing 93.5% of the time.
All the excitement this week has been super fun. However, I need to harness the energy and pour it into my WIP. Enough celebrating. It’s time to get back to work. I wrote 2,000 words yesterday and hope to keep the trend going.
You all made my good news so much sweeter to share. I count each one of you a blessing and I can’t wait until the day I get to return the blessing and celebrate with you! If you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about, see Wednesday’s post.
Not to get all 5th grade girl-lingo on you, but one of my BFFs is coming to visit this weekend. Every time we get together, we pig out at Sonic, eat blizzards from Dairy Queen (with extra candy of course) and spend the entire time immersed in girl talk. She even brings her black lab to have a weekend-long play date with my black lab. Fun times all around!
Question to Ponder: What are your cares, concerns, and celebrations this Friday morning? Please share! I always look forward to Fridays. I love reading your comments and getting to know everyone better.
