I'm excited

I've had people tell me that one of the best things you can do when fighting something like I am is to start something new.

Like painting.

Believe it or not, there is something I want to paint, and I'm going to, (that should be a trip:-) but that isn't what I'm excited about.

Here's what it is.

My sister Noelle loves to paint.

I love to write.

We have decided to try doing a children's book together.

I took a couple college children's lit. classes.

During that period I wrote a book that I never tried to have published about my grandpa during the Depression.

It was for 8-10 year olds.

We are going to take that same idea and scale it down for kids around the age of Karis.

My family has some of the best stories around that time period. I'm excited to hear more of them and hopefully incorporate them into our newest idea.

Could you pray that I find my old manuscript?

It is on a no longer working computer and printed out and saved somewhere in my basement.

I looked tonight for about two minutes and couldn't find it. :-)

I know, I know.... two minutes. I don't feel like digging forever, though... :-) So some extra prayers would be appreciated.

I'll share more as the days go on, but right now I just wanted to tell everyone what has me smiling.

Love you guys!
