"Tell Me Another Story - Blog Seven" is ending the year with some unexpected thoughts from 2017, but will welcome lots of hopes, joys and happiness in the coming year of 2018. Again there are "Happy Birthdays" and "Happy Anniversaries". We have the holidays ahead of us. We celebrate the birth of Jesus. What a miracle Jesus is.......He shows us honesty and wants us always to tell the truth...there is no game that is worth dishonesty, suffering, or trying to gain control of one's power. So today I am writing a personal note. I will let you know that I don't play any kind of hurtful game(s); especially the brain game. When it comes to a brain, God creates us as a human being; we are one of a kind. I hope you will always realize that life is a gift from God! Respect, respect, respect life! I respect my editor, publishing companies and I hope they respect me. I look at other authors and wonder if they are going through the same kind of ordeal; critics can be disgusting. I know they would hire an attorney so they could protect their copy rights, and their birth month, gender, and name. And its a known fact that we are never dead until the good Lord calls us Home. I look at the generations behind me, and pray that they will use common sense and also respect. Never use desperation as a last result. Patience is the best kind of attitude. And drama? Drama happens way too often. It brings bad attitude. So never doubt for a minute that when we write, we always use drama. I would rather write a tear jerker, using a writers point of view...so bring on the Kleenex! How else do we get our thoughts on paper? Then after writing, I look up to the one above, God or Jesus, who gives me comfort, strength and pray! On a lighter note, have a great holiday! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And God Bless You! I'll be seeing you in 2018. If the Good Lord is watching over me.
