What gratitude means to me.
This is going to be a rather personal post, but I feel the need to put into words my topsy-turvy state of mind.
I guess it all started a couple of years ago when my daughter and grandson moved to the other end of the country so she could pursue her master’s degree in biology.
I’m so very proud of her, but miss them horribly.
Then, earlier this year my mother-in-law passed away. She’d been ill for a while, and we expected a call sooner or later, but it’s still hard.
July comes and DH’s union decides to call a strike. This is the first time he’s ever been in a union, so we didn’t know what to expect- five months and counting wasn’t on the list!
And finally, my mom went in for her regular blood work check up last week and received a call the same night to get in to emergency as her potassium had bottomed out and she was in danger of a heart attack.
What does all of this have to do with gratitude you might ask?
I’m grateful for the roof over my head, the medical services available in our country, the family and friends who have supported us during these rough periods, and most of all, for the strength to keep going when I’d sooner hide under a rock.
I’ve come to realise, no matter how hard life seems, faith and hope is a fire that will NOT let us give up. And sometimes, miracles happen.
Do you ever get depressed? What do you do to overcome it?
My upcoming release is the story of two sisters faced by the ultimate betrayal and how the strength of family ties bring them together again.
I’M EXCITED TO SHARE THE COVER FOR MY UPCOMING WOMEN’S FICTION NOVEL, THE SISTER PACT!
THE SISTER PACT: HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Two sisters lose sight of what’s most important- family bonds.
Holly Tremaine is living on borrowed time. A life-threatening illness ends her promising musical career and sends her home in the hope of making amends for the past.
Levi Anderson is on the fast track to a successful year within his profession- the last thing he has time for is his twin brother’s shenanigans. But when it includes the one woman Levi hasn’t been able to forget, his conscience won’t let him avoid the temptation to see her again.
Can remorse heal all wounds? Or will past betrayals continue to ruin family ties, one thread at a time?
