The Big Fuzzy Coat

Ah, hello, friends.I entered a contest that requires folks to vote for your work. I'm not the "popular sort" and it has quickly become apparent that this contest is about people who can really connect with media and are social butterflies of this world. I have always been a worker bee with a few of the best sort of friends in the universe. Still I'm giving it my best shot.

My friends are busy this time of year, and I tend to hang out with the Facewhat? crowd. You have to be on Facebook to vote in the contest. So the votes haven't exactly been rolling in yet. This is not me whining. I'm just trying to look out at the world and perceive it. Part of me is down. I've had just tons of asthma attacks this week to the point I just don't want to get out of bed. It's taking everything just to breathe. So what am I learning. Writing books is hard work. Promoting books is hard work. There is a lot of hard work in the universe.

The truest thing I know is trying is important and taking risks is important. Putting yourself in the public eye takes bravery. And if you speak and find that your are not a roaring lion but instead you are more of the quiet voice type -- that's nothing to worry about. Do the little things of your life with great love.

I hope that you give my story a look. It's called The Big Fuzzy Coat. I am quite pleased with it. Please consider giving it a vote if you indeed know what Facebook is. Select the following link and choose "like". Pass it on please.

If you don't know what Facebook is, it is nothing to be worried about. You can read my story anyway, and I think that you will like it.

I'm forgoing this week's doodle for my recent masterpiece. I made a lemon meringue pie. Here is the pic:

Here is a Bible quote that always sticks with me. It gives a sense of the deep waters the flow unseen.

And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:11

Hey Molly, I remember a very old version of this. Nice work, it has grown into a beauty.

You know I don't do FB, so I can't do the voting thing. I hope you feel better soon. And I love that quote from the Bible. God indeed comes to you in stillness and quiet.

I do love it now. It feels very rounded and smooth. Thanks for giving it a read.

That Bible verse whispers in me.

I'd vote for the pie too, but there wasn't a contest for it.

Do you remember my crazy baking fits in college? I don't know, something about baking a pie always calms me and makes me feel so accomplished.

I'm entering the baking contest next week for CS. I going to make lemon tarts.

Hey Molly, I'm behind on my blog reading so I didn't see this till now. Love the images in your story though. It would be fun to illustrate for sure. Don't dwell too much on popularity contests. Think only of your work and pat yourself on the back for being brave.

And know too that even when you feel alone, you'd be surprised how many people are rooting for you.

Hi, Kjersten! Thanks for dropping by. I saw pics of your grand adventure on FB. You all looked so happy.

Your words are really encouraging. Thank you.
