Smile!

renee-hammond-author-smile

Nothing beats those moments when you are feeling down and a friend steps up to make you smile. Completely unexpected and wanting nothing in return. These are the kinds of people I am lucky to have in my life and for that I am grateful.

This year has been tough. Some moments have been the most memorable and exciting of my life, others shattered me. But, last night my mood shifted to one of such sadness that inflicted physical pain like I’d never felt before. Nope, I don’t suffer depression, my heart goes out to those who do, but sometimes I do feel down.

Then, out of the blue, from someone completely unexpected, I received a series of messages that soothed the pain, made me smile and turned my night around.

Today I have blown my word count reader through the roof, the words have flown onto the page at a rate I nearly couldn’t keep up with. Another reason to smile…like a snowball reaction, the smiles keep on coming and this pleases me to no end!

I hope the people around you give you reason to smile when you struggle to find reason on your own.

Love and hugs, and a fabulous weekend to you.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. Being an author can be a lonely road, and as much as the Internet becomes a distraction I am so grateful for how connected I am able to stay with authors from all over the world. I have just sat down with a cup of coffee, and now I look forward to reading your post. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and I can’t wait to hear more about the novel going up. Congratulations, exciting times! ❤ x
