Why is it when I'm happy, I mean really feeling thankful for all of the blessings in my life, some crabby person comes along and tries to rain on my parade? It happens often and I have to wonder if maybe God is testing me. If He is, that's okay. He knows what I need, of course, and if He feels I need to be tested on my patience or my ability to control my temper and not rip someone's head off, then so be it.
Anyway...about my book - My current WIP is a novel about a homeless man who has battled alcoholism for most of his life. He's basically made a mess of his life and has ended up alone. He wants to make up for time he's lost and try to heal the pain he's caused. I feel for this character. After all, how often do good, decent people make mistakes and often hurt the very people they care about the most? I've been guilty of this myself.
I feel good about this story and I look forward to writing today.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday! Don't let anyone rain on your parade! =)
