Christmas is Almost Here

When I was a child, time seemed to move by slowly. Impatient as all kids my age, I constantly complained about it taking so long for Christmas to get here. My mother told me to just wait as the older I got, the faster time would fly. Of course, I didn't believe her.

After gifts were put under the tree, I'd shake and rattle each one with my name. Eventually I learned to carefully unwrap and then re-wrap them. I know, that's terrible isn't it? My husband rarely puts any gifts out for me until it's time to open them.

I worked as a teacher for thirty years, and often said, "I can't wait for Christmas vacation, or two more weeks until school is out for summer." One day I realized I was wishing my life away. Each summer made me a year older. Now the years fly by so fast it's hard to catch up.

I hope this Christmas you will enjoy and make the most of every moment you can spend with your loved ones and friends. It's impossible to make more time, so cherish every second now and in the coming new year.

We'll be celebrating Christmas with our grown children and our grandson. I can hardly wait.

If you haven't entered my contest for the Zuni Bear earrings, see the post below for details. The drawing will be on January 9, 2013. A Stolen Chance was released early at and is just $2.99 until January 9th when it will be released to The Wild Rose Press and other online book stores and will be $4.99.

Next month I'll share some of my research details from A Stolen Chance--mainly men's fragrances of that time. Very interesting.

Happy Reading and Writing and Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
