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!
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....
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!
