Feeling So Blessed!

Yes, I'm late getting my post up.

Yes... I knew it was my Wednesday!!!

And with all the good intentions of a strong Christian woman, I intended to have this all done last Friday.

And then life happened and the post didn't happen and it's pumpkin season here on the farm and I might be stretched in a few directions.


Oh my stars, there could be worse things!

Feeling So Blessed!

DRAGON LAIRS!!!!! Dragons were invited to live at the farm to help protect the fairies (because they're quite small, you know) and there are seven new dragon lairs tucked here and there.... because dragons, while misunderstood, are a cool thing to have on a pumpkin farm!

Worse things than having two lovely careers, writer and farmer. 

Worse things than being surrounded by grandkids and customers and joy.

Worse things than dusty shelves and dustier floors.

In Ruthy world, busy is vital.

In Ruthy world, if you've got time to rest you've got time to write, get ice cream, walk, make something, bake something... notice that cleaning didn't make that list, LOL!

I love being busy. (I also love the peace of winter, of being able to write several times/day, of being a little quieter because I know the season of busy looms again... happily.)

I've finished two Guideposts novella romantic mysteries, one full-length Guideposts mystery and a new 80,000 word Wishing Bridge book this year, and plan to finish a mystery before year's end.

So that's exciting! 

And we have more gorgeous pumpkins and mums than ever....

Also exciting.

So forgive me for being late! Forgive me for waxing on.... And I still have to mail books from August. That's my bad... but I am so blessed to be healthy, busy, focused (again, cleaning doesn't seem to rank high on the focus-meter)... :)

So while this post isn't filled with great writing substance, it is filled with love... for you, for life, for God, for all the blessings that are showered on us every day, even in these trying times of mega-inflation and division...  The blessings of another day, a new day. Of faith, family and friends. Of food on the table and a faucet that brings us clean, fresh water, 24/7/365.... The blessings of plumbing and electricity, of Internet and Abbott's Frozen Custard. :)

Sending you hugs and blessings on this mid-September day! God bless you!

    "Ruthy, maybe it's something in the water (impossible, we don't all drink the same water but whatever), but the posts this week and last week have been especially meaningful. This is deep and I will be counting my autumn blessings today as I go about whatever it is I do...

    "Blessings abound! We don't always take the time to see what God has been up to and is doing right in front of our faces. One of our blessings today: Texas is FINALLY cooling down. We're supposed to have a high of 82 today. We love 82 haha. Another, we have no crop due to drought but our fields are green due to recent rain. God is oh so Good!

    "Ruthy + Busy = Happy! Great post reminding us of all the blessings we have in life, especially the little niceties we take for granted like clean water 24/7/365 and ice cream. I love your dragons and whole-heartedly agree they make excellent champions of the fairies when they keep their inner furnaces tamped down, LOL.

    So many wonderful novels and novellas. Keep those books coming, Ruthy!

    Have fun with pumpkins and friends in sunshine before the snow flies!

    "One thing I've always loved about you, Ruthy, is that you never take anything for granted. Life is full of blessings - we just need to take the time to recognize them!

    And I love the dragon lairs. Not only can the dragons serve as the fairies' protectors and champions, they will also serve nicely as furnaces during long winter nights. :-)"
