Before we get too far into 2018, why not savor our milestone events and take a look back at 2017.
With that goal in mind, my writerly pals and I are sharing our personal moments from last year in the Looking Back at 2017 Blog Hop.
What was my happiest and saddest moment in 2017? What were your highs, and lows? Read my answers below and share my year with me, then be sure and visit the other #GR8Blogs linked at the end of this post for more memorable moments.
I encourage all of you to answer these questions as well so you can reminisce, count your blessings, and remember what you learned along the way!
So, what were my most memorable moments from 2017?
Our family is a very spiritual one. A choice that we made for ourselves is to have God first and foremost in our lives. So, when my husband’s grandfather felt the same and made a personal dedication, we couldn’t have been happier!
In March my dear grandmother suffered a severe stroke. We were not sure if she would make it. Well, she’s a fighter our grandma! She was determined that she was not done living her life and is recovering along nicely. In November, my mother and I flew back down to LA to visit with her and our family.
I was totally flabbergasted when I learned in July that one of my books won silver in the 2017 Literary Classics Book Awards Contest! Off we flew to Rapid City South Dakota, to receive my silver award for Little Katie Goes to the Moon and to share in a fantastic weekend of writers workshops, the Great America Book Festival, and hobnobbing with some pretty impressive fellow award-winning authors.
My amazingly supportive, charming, handsome husband and I celebrated nine years of wedded bliss. Cannot believe this year will be the big 1 0!!
This was the gist of my year. Along the way, I laughed and cried, I learned many things. I was reminded that life could change so quickly and unexpectedly. Things are not always what they seem, and experienced some setbacks with some writing stuff at the end of the year, but that’s ok! 2018 is a new year, filled with fresh possibilities and adventure awaits just around the corner. I wish I could share some of the things I have in the pipes, all in due time. Until then, stick around and see what 2018 has in store!
