I am sitting here listening to the Top 20 of 2014 countdown on CMT and lamenting the fact that I have to return to work on Monday. Being home for the past two weeks has been nice. Lots of family time, plenty of rest and all the time I wanted to write and edit. I even indulged in one of my other hobbies- crochet. I am not highly talented at it but I really enjoy it. A friend of mine who prefers to knit and I are collaborating on a baby blanket for a colleague of ours. She knits the squares, I crochet a border and then connect them into an afghan. It has been very therapeutic.
One of my resolutions for 2015 is to learn to make granny squares. I would like to make some personalized gifts for my closest friends and family members for Christmas next year. I need to start now though if I hope to finish in time!
I belong to a group on my favorite social networking site that posed two questions this morning: "What are you thankful for from 2014?" and "What are your goals for 2015?" Of course, I am ever thankful for the turn my writing career has taken in recent months. It has long been a dream for me to share my passion for storytelling with the world and it is overwhelming and exciting that it is finally happening. I am every thankful for the safety of my husband at work every night and the blessings my two sons are to me. I am terrible at making resolutions because I always end up feeling like a failure when I don't keep them but I will be giving this some thought. 2015 is a blank slate and I want to fill it with memories.
