Well, Thanksgiving's over. The leftovers are (finally) gone. Family's gone, too. This is one of my favorite quotes, because it reminds me to count my blessings, to rejoice in the positives, to appreciate the good things in life.

It's been one heck of a week. Body Armor finally released. The Story Empire blog was nominated for Best Writing Blog at Positive Writer. My word count on my WIP is at an all-time high.

Well, here we are again. Another Friday, another week gone, another weekend approaching. This week,¬†hope was a big focus of mine. We had a family member in the hospital for quite a while.
