Heart Lessons

My novel is on submission with news expected from my agent soon.
I am a wobbly mess of nerves,
and am trying to keep my mind occupied and my heart light.
So yesterday I taught the girls how to cut out hearts.

I tried to let them help with the sewing and
ended up breaking a needle and losing it somewhere
into the depths of the machine.
But now we have more happy hearts to give away.

And a new prize to add to The Writer Games loot.

This is what it's all about. Having fun with the people you love.
And trying not to growl at them when they break your sewing machine.

Waiting is the hardest part! I love the hearts!

Love the hearts - such a wonderful idea. Am going to copy it this weekend.

I love those hearts! I can't wait to hear news of your novel. I'm even more excited to read it when it's out. Congratulations on making it to this waypoint.

(My word verification today is "healer." Faith Healer! Yay!)

Wow. I'm glad you all like our hearts! Crafty projects are a perfect activity when the kids have sniffles yet again. They (the kids) are less bouncy.

Stacy, yes, I think I agree with you so far about waiting. All my fingernails are bitten to the quick. But then they are most of the time, depending on how good my latest read is.

Jen, Tara and Martha, thank you for the kind words! I appreciate all those happy, positive thoughts right now. Good for the morale.
