I'm happy for you that you found a new job Stacy. It doesn't pay much, as you said, but maybe it will either work into a higher salary there, or the experience will allow you to get a better job somewhere else.

Praying for you, and for those poor people! Just teasing! But I am praying for you--that you will enjoy your work and that it will work into something more financially feasible.

Barbara

Glad you found a job Stacy! Good luck.

I'm excited because tomorrow is the candle light for the retreatants. I get to see my son, Justin, and hug him once again. I know by now he has been touched by the Holy Spirit in this retreat. His kind heart and compassion will let all the goodness in.

Then Sunday's mass will be dedicated to all the teen retreatants then all the families will celebrate with a big meal at the parish hall. I'm so happy for him and all the kids that decided to know more about Christ.

That's great Dina!!

I have a little celebration too. Other than picking at it here and there, I haven't spent any time working on my book in months. I was struck with inspiration tonight and just wrote a little over a page. I know that doesn't seem like much, but sometimes I don't write more than a paragraph or a sentence in that time.

I once read that a writer should write everyday, even if it's a thought or reflection of your day. It helps keep thoughts flowing. You can do it Barb. Keep writing.

I do write every day, but unfortunately it is mostly here! You are right though, I need to get back to writing my book. I had gotten into the habit of keeping it open on my computer whenever I am on it, and I have gone back to that. I also have a little digital recorder to bring with me, so that if an idea hits while I am away from the computer I won't forget it.

I've read this, too. Stephen King wrote a book about the whole process. I think it is titled On Writing. Anyway, he said that not writing every day is death to a writer!
