38 and still here

Yep you read  that right. I am 38 today. It's my birthday. I had hoped my birthday gift would be the removal of my tooth but as most of you know insurance issues have cropped up. Oh well.

I still have my Mom, my two precious kitties and all my dear friends, along with my writing. Speaking of writing, though it is my birthday I want to send a huge shout out to one of the most special people I know, N.J. Walters. She's an amazing author, but she is even more importantly a dear friend.

She gave me the kick in the pants I needed to try submitting my work and is totally the reason I have been published. It was her encouragement that gave me the courage to try. And every time something happens to bring me down she's right there picking up. So, Happy Birthday to me, but Brightest Blessings to N.J.:-)

And I can't conclude this post, talking about N.J. and not provide the link to her website. Her books really are stellar. So click here to check her out. Love you N.J.:-)

You are so sweet. Thank you so much for your kind words! You gave me a present and it's not even my birthday. :)

You did all the work yourself to get published. You should be very proud of yourself. You made your dream happen.

Happy Birthday, my friend! Be good to yourself today. I hope today is a very special one for you.

*Birthday Hug*

Thanks sweetie. But I never would have tried without your encouragement.

And Dear NJ....because you encouraged Kat, she turned around and kicked me in the butt to get up and try again after MY bad experience trying to get my little stories to the public...so NJ...on behalf of BOTH Kat and me...Thank you. Kat...Sweet Angel...you're my miracle child. Thanks for choosing me to be your mom.
