My kids are going to a rodeo tonight. They’ve been ready  for hours now and driving me nuts with their energy and expectations for fun. Made me think – what do I anticpate? What am I expectant for in my life? What gets my blood fired up and rarin’ to go? What makes me want to get out of bed in the morning?

Right now I’m working on two books – one fiction – one non-fiction. Working on them definitely fires me up and gets me excited. A little fearful too – what if no one likes them? (grateful that I have readers who love my novel!)  Still – I’m having fun and that’s what counts right? Who knows what God will do? He’s already reconnected me with so many people that I knew just a few years ago in High School (good ol’ Goodrich!).

I always wanted to write and now have had the courage to do it – jumped into NaNoWriMo last year and everything changed. So with a mixture of fear and joyful anticipation – I’m writing. I’m pouring out my heart and creativity.  I look forward to seeing how God will use that next. So here’s my blog. Just another step forward in a world filled with people giving their thoughts and opinions on life, exploring their adventures and potentially being inspiring in the process. Not sure if you will find that all here – but you never know – you might!  Hopefully you will check in occassionally and say “hi”.

In the meantime – what fires you up? What is getting you up in the morning? If nothing – you may need to explore the dreams God has planted in your heart – and take a risk to follow them. You just never know what will happen in the process.

  1. So true, Susan. Those special friends are the kind that you go years without seeing, but take moments to reconnect with. Then its as if your had never been apart. Love that! And I totally agree–writing is more addictive than Starbucks. I hope I’m never rehabilitated:). Happy writing!


    • rehabilitated? Perish the thought! 🙂 We seriously need to set a date and time to connect. It was funny that I was just in Germantown yesterday morning to meet with some friends from where we worked in Milwaukee. It was wonderful. You and I have so much to talk about! Including our “addiction” to writing!
