I hope all of you have the greatest 2009 ever !
I hope our new President can get our countries in much better shape. I know it won't happen over night but, I have hopes ! I hope the pain and hunger will start to go away.

I am so glad the Holidays are over, don't get me wrong I love the holidays. Everything is so rush rush at that time of year. I am not much on crowds of people running amok in stores and talking on their cell phones at the same time.

I have an idea for a Children's story but, I have no one to talk about it with me.
So bare with me a few minutes and I will give you a short paragraph about my idea. ( If you promise not to stop following my blog.) LOL

It is about a boy that live with his Mother and they are very poor. They raise goats and the boy tends them and fishes some times while the goats are eating.
The boy finds a talking fish. Okay that was the short part.

I am so happy to have my Cancer patient to send cards and note. I hope it is some comfort to her.

My oldest son had knee replacement this past week, he is Diabetic and won't heal very fast, so please pray for him, his name is Jim.

I love all of my blogger friends. Have a good day.

Hugs !

Such nice wishes for your friends and the New Year.

Our President Elect appears to be heading toward bipartisanship if only his own constituents will let him.

Love the little boy and his talking fish story and can't wait to hear more. You will share with us won't you?

Granny Annie, are you sure you want to hear more of my story ? I am flattered !! If you want more I will add a little everyday until someone tells me to stop. LOL

Leslie Your story sounds wonderful and it's great to hear you want to create something. Stay on it I know how much you want to do children's stories. When you have time take a look at Meredith Gimbel's website. Her blog is on the side bar of mine. Meredith is a children's illustrator you'll find her website link in her blog or just do a google search.
Any other resources I know of I'll track down and let you know.

I'll pray for your son. My Mum is diabetic so I know where you're coming from on the healing side of things.

Everything will be just fine Leslie. Share your story it sounds wonderful

Love and hugs

Hi Leslie,

I am with you, I hope 2009 will bring much improvement to our counrty and to the world as well.

Your story sounds nice. Do you have a writer's group in Eureka Springs? We have one around here, and the town in very small. I would inquire and then attend and get some advice and ideas. There are also writer's newsletters on the Internet. Do a search for children's writer groups and newsletters on the Internet, you may come up with something, and find a place to send it to.

I get several newsletters, but I don't write children's stories. I am sure you'll find something. But write the story first! Then you can try and find a market for it. Good luck with it.

I will say prayers for your son.

Take good care!

I will be praying for your son. And I can't wait to hear the rest of your story- make sure you get it all on paper while it is fresh on your mind!
