Snow? In Las Vegas?

We might have a dusting of snow tomorrow morning. It’s cold here, in the low 30’s right now.

We are supposed to leave for California on Wednesday, but if the weather is bad, we will have to wait a day or two. But we will go..

I sent my book Behind The Mask to the Writer’s Digest Self Published Book Awards contest. I received a nice letter and certificate from them today. I didn’t win, but the letter included the the Judge’s commentary, telling me what they liked and how the book could be improved. I received a four out of five for structure and organization, grammar, and cover design. Thank you Writer’s Digest.

The sequel to Behind The Mask, will be Adopt A Caregiver. That is my life journey now. I hope to improve the quality of life for the caregiver and get them some real people support. I wish I had the time to write to all the caregivers I know. I hope between now and the end of the year, I can at least write one email to each and every one of them.

I’m working on Adopt A Caregiver, trying to write it all down on paper, and iron out the kinks, so that everyone can hear my plans. They aren’t a secret.  I am passionate about my subject and I feel that ther coming year will be great. I’m looking forward to it with joy, encouragement, and interest.

Every day, there is something new, something different. To all of you who have shared your stories, I thank you. To all of you who don’t want to talk about it, I suggest and encourage you to write it out. No one has to see it but you. Try to find one time during the day that you can do something for yourself, even if it’s taking a bath, or listening to music you love. There is always something to be grateful for. So many people will be facing the holidays alone and depressed. I wish for them something good each day.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Adopt A Caregiver, tell them your friend Helene sent you. It is the gift that lasts forever, and costs nothing.
