News: Good, Good, and We'll See

Good news #1:

Finding Angel is a finalist in the Grace Awards YA category! That means that I've made it through the first round. Now, a panel of judges will read and, well, judge (duh) the finalists (there are three) and pick a winner. The cool part is that regardless of whether I "win" or not, I can still say: Finding Angel is a finalist in the Grace Awards YA category! (See how sneakily I got that in *twice* in one paragraph :).

Good news #2:

I've mentioned on here that I battled cancer a few years ago. Seven years to be exact. And I now have my latest verification that the cancer is still gone. Seven years cancer free. Nifty :).

News #3 (the "good" part as yet to be determined):

I'm now on Twitter. Honestly, not sure what has made me jump off that particular cliff. I have resisted for a long, long time. But you can find me by clicking on the little button over there in the sidebar on the right if you scroll down a little. The one under the Facebook button, which you ought to click, too.

So. There you go.

Love you,

Funny!!! I noticed that, too:) You're a good daughter and you show me in so many ways that you love me. You mean more to me than I could ever tell you, and I'm so proud of you and thrilled to see you succeeding as a mom, wife, writer and artist. Wow - how did I get such an incredible daughter???
