The #Grandma Who Lived

The Grandma not only lived, she loved every moment of her holiday #GrandmaProject. Now the aftermath? Being left in an empty house? That is not so great. But it is part of the Circle of Life, so I will be brave (mostly).

One of my kids asked me what I was going to do when everyone was gone and I said, “Oh, just write a book.”

They all laughed, but I am very aware that I owe my readers not just one new book, but at least two. I got knocked off my production track that last part of 2016, but going to try very hard to get back on that track in 2017.

Because I’m old (and I died in 1999), I don’t do resolutions that much anymore. I think what I do is more wishes. haha

So here is what I wish for you and me in 2017:

  1. More kindness toward each other
  2. Good times with friends and family
  3. Good food and good books
  4. Peace in our hearts (even if peace on earth seems a bit distant right now)
  5. Courage in our challenges
  6. Learning from those challenges that gives us more courage for more challenges (yes, that is pretty much how it works, I’m afraid)
  7. Hope in our hearts that we can all be better, that we are judged by our best moments, not our worst

What do you wish/hope for in 2017?

I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value).  (And don’t forget that once a quarter I’ll be tossing in something fun from the Perilously Fun Shop!) Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month. (I know I need to announce a winner for December, but it’s not easy to get my brain online, so stay tuned!)

Perilously yours,

Pauline
