Feeling Good!

          If someone ask you what makes you feel good? How do you answer? NO, now don't jump to the first thing that comes into your mind, really think about it.
          Do the Holidays make you happy and feel good or do they make you sad and depressed?
          Let me tell you what makes me feel good. Making others happy, and letting other people know someone out there cares. Thinking of others is very rewarding. A simple smile or a good morning, even saying happy Holidays to someone can make you feel just as good as the person receiving it. Something so simple can be so rewarding.
          Have you ever thought about it? Can you count on your fingers how many times you have smiled at a stranger and had that stranger smile back at you? How many times have you said to someone this month Happy Holidays? Do you remember how many times someone has said Happy Holidays to you? Don't be surprise if you can't remember, for the answer could be none unless you said it first.
            Now let me tell you what makes me feel good. Making people smile, saying happy holidays to strangers, a cup of hot cocoa, fruit cake, and knowing my children are safe, grandchildren and great grandchildren are dreaming of what they are going to get for Christmas.
           So, if you are feeling down in the dumps, think of all the things you have to be thankful for and see how many people you can get to smile back at you in a friendly way.
           One other thing makes me happy, I just finished writing my ninth book "Alone" hopefully to be out soon. This makes the fifth in the Masson Murder Series. Now it's time to start another.
           Merry Christmas to all and May God Bless.

THE STORM!

Well, south Florida was spared the destruction that Mathew bought with it to so many. The Islands and Northern Florida was beat to a pulp and it will be several days if not weeks before things are back to normal, Even the Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina suffered the Wrath of Matthew.
       In the past several years South Florida has managed to keep out of the path of the mighty Hurricanes that rip the roofs, sidings off buildings and flood rivers, raise tides and swallow up homes in the path of their destructions.
       Our hearts go out to those that have been injured, lost their homes, and possibly has lost love ones and suffered injury. Our Prayers are with you and hope and pray for a speedy recovery back to a normal way of life.
May God Bless and keep you safe in the days to come.

Time in a Bottle!

           If they make a bottle of  'Turn Back Time' I'd be the first in line to buy a case! It's that I mine turning older, it isn't that all. The older I get the wiser I become, so if I could become younger in body and spirit, but keep getting older what a wonderful feeling that would be.
           Don't get me wrong, I work nine hours a day in an office and then work on my books in the evening for two to fours hours before bed. Weekends are full of gardening and writing. Now believe me I'm not complaining, I'm a very happy person.
           After seven years I went on vacation, for a week, it was relaxing in one way, and in another it made worried about the office, my clients, and couldn't wait to get home! Came home with a neck spasm that lasted two weeks.
           I guess that was my downward spin! When I got back to work I felt like a bomb went off on my desk. It took over two and a half weeks to just see a speck of wood on the top. Then my hip started to hurt, felt like the bone was going to exploded. Trip to the Orthopaedic and he put me in physical therapy, gave me an injection in the joint, and a couple of weeks later it felt a lot better. Now the story doesn't end there, when the hip became better I started having lighten bolts shot through my left eye. Wasn't any pain, just very annoying to see jagged flashes in my eye.
            Now it was a trip to the Ophthalmologist, it appeared I might have a retinal tear beginning. By the time I went to the appointment, the lighten had stopped but black spots appeared. So when I was typing it looked like I was adding periods to my words where periods weren't suppose to be!
            My children. now grown with families of their own call me for advise and to comfort there fears. They always think I'm calm, cool and collected, if they only really knew at the raging storm that brews down deep within. Yes the outside is always in control as the inside is always turning like a Tornado waiting to take out the block, so to speak.           
            Is this part of getting old? Like I said, if they made Turn back Time in a bottle, I'd be the first in line.  So if anyone sees a sale on it, please send me an email so I can get in line.
            Well that's it for tonight, every one have a good night and May God Bless.
