I Feel Like I Just Jumped Off the High Dive....

Perhaps I was caught up in the possibility of a new year and all of its potential. I just submitted my first article query to a national PTO magazine. Now, I'll wait to see if they are willing to accept it before I write the actual article. I am feeling part excitement, part embarrassment! I had the idea a few weeks ago, but I have no clue if the editor will find the idea as interesting as I think it is!

The Husband blew me away on Christmas morning with his show of support. A few weeks ago I had been telling him about how I get ideas for stories while I pray commuting to and from work, and that I try to jot the ideas down on whatever paper is handy in my van. He didn't like that idea very much....something about it being dangerous and me crashing into things! So, on Christmas morning I unwrapped a handheld voice recorder from him with five very powerful words written with Sharpie on a note attached to the box:

Because I believe in you.

I figured I'll never know if I don't at least give it a try, right? Thanks to all of you for your prayers and words of encouragement! I have reached the conclusion at the ripe age of 39 and 5/6 that life is too short not to pursue the desires of your heart. After all, God put them there!!

What a beautiful gift! Know what? I believe in you too! You inspire many, and will continue to do so. And, as I've said to the kids many times: I don't even know what I want to be when I grow up, so, at 39, you go ahead and DREAM BIG!
