It's Wishcasting Wednesday so the gorgeous soul Jamie Ridler is inviting us to cast our wishes into the universe. This week Jamie asks, "What do you wish to celebrate?"
First, I wish to celebrate Jamie! Today is her birthday. I wish for her to have a day filled with magic, blessings, and unbridled joy!
Second, I wish to celebrate new friends, most of whom I met through some new mommy programs. As adults, sometimes it's difficult to meet new friends, so I am thankful for the groups that brought us mommies together.
Third, I wish to celebrate my leap in to the world of writing fiction. In September I completed a short story and submitted it to NPR for a short story contest. Even though I didn't win, I'm still really proud of myself for having the courage to send a story out into the world. In November I finished a (really, really short) novel. It needs some major work before it will be presentable, but holy smokes, I wrote a novel!
There are so many more things I wish to celebrate... my loving husband, my intelligent teen, my wide-eyed baby. After a couple of rough years, this has been a year of blessings.
I also wish to celebrate you! Thank you for being here. If you haven't already, please connect with me on Facebook at facebook.com/sherrimhutchins and Twitter @smhutchins. Once you're there, drop me a note to say hi. I promise to say hi back.
