Would you like some cheese with that wHine?

Hey y’all, Lynette Eason here. I want to say that when I got the email that it was my turn to post, I groaned. I thought, “I don’t have time. I have a book due on THURSDAY, yes, that would be in 4 days…AND I’M NOT FINISHED!” I’m close, true, but I still haven’t done much editing on it and an hour ago, I tore apart a whole chapter, changed around a couple of scenes and am now only putting it all back together to see if it even makes sense.

Then I felt guilty—and a bit like a whiny brat. Here I am, living my dream. I’m a published author with deadlines! How many people would love to be in my position? I’m part of an incredible group of talented ladies who give of their time faithfully to make sure this blog stays active, interesting and worth the time our readers invest in reading it. I should be excited, if not giddy, that that I even have a turn to post on it! And I really am! LOL.

So, I’ve had my hands slapped today. I’m over my little snarky, “I don’t have time for this,” moment. Because I do have time for it. I WANT to make time for it because it’s a priority and I’m grateful to be a part of it.

What’s my point?

We’re all human, we all fail, we all “have our moments”, but if you stop and think about it, is there something in your life that you might be groaning about doing and should instead, be thanking God for the opportunity to do?

Thanks for stopping by!

God Bless,

Lynette

LOL, Pamela. God. Hehehe. He does that occasionally. Just when I need it. Um...like everyday?

Lynette,
Your writing schedule must be so tight with all the releases you have in the upcoming year! Good for you!

And you're still sane! Amazing.

Guess I'm saying, you can whine a little, if you like. We understand about deadlines.

LOL, thanks Debby! Well, now that I've got permission...naw, just kidding. I'm good! Can't wait to see everyone at ACFW!
