Always be Thankful

This time of year people start thinking about what they are thankful for. Many of you who will read this don’t actually know me. You don’t know that at nineteen I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That I’ve lost my vision three times in one eye or the other. Steroids brought it back. That for a while there I had to use a wheel chair to get around. That the pain I have from this disease is more often than not unbearable. I haven’t said this to make anyone feel sorry for me. In fact I don’t want or need anyone’s pity. I’ve shared these thing with you so you can understand how grateful I am for today. To be alive at all is a blessing. I’m thankful that things are going okay with my body for now. Today I can see, walk and play with my kids with minimal pain. To often in life people forget to be thankful for the small things. The small things that get taken for granted on a daily basis. I’m thankful for all of my life. Every single part. I’m 27 and married to my high school sweet heart. He is my hero and I fall more in love with him everyday. I am thankful for him beyond words. We have two beautiful children who remind me daily how precious life is. They make everyday worth living. My body maybe a little broken but my life is wonderful. I’m thankful I still have the ability to write and I can’t wait to finish my first book and share it with everyone. I’m also thankful you took the time to read this. I hope you have a beautiful day full of laughter. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

Just kill me already!!!!!

******SPOILER ALERT*********

Someone is going to die in my book. Yes, I know so very sad. The way they die is still undecided. I’m stuck with two scenario’s. Now which one to choose. I like both choices of how they’re going to die,even though it’s a sad situation. I’m thinking about writing them both out and then seeing which one I like more. I know you’re probably thinking. The person is dead either way. So why does how they die really matter when the end result is the same. This characters death has a huge impact in my main characters life. My choice will lead the main character and story in a certain direction. This direction changes dramatically with how the the person dies. I’m just scared I’m going to get caught up in the story path of one choice and not know when to stop. I don’t want to feel like I’ve wasted my time writing something I won’t ever use. I guess this is just all apart of the whole writing process. Decisions, decisions , decisions. Wish me luck. This could be a doozy. ๐Ÿ™‚
