Very early today, I had a sad dream. In this I said ‘goodbye’ to many people, many animals, many circumstances, many aspects of my abilities to DO STUFF. So much love, so much hurt, so much striving and life. Faces of people in the past and images of ‘gone’ events all were real. Sadness swirled around me like a cauldron. I took a few necessary minutes to grieve.
Yet! there suddenly in my spirit came a strong answer.

MAKE YOUR ‘HELLOS’ SIGNIFICANT
So to all of you, I care about I say:
A new day – another canvas to write on. Make all your hellos vibrate with real possibility. Remember the past with gratitude but choose not to LIVE there.
The future is uncharted. There are possibilities ahead for each ONE of us.
Blaze HELLO! on new people you meet and all new opportunities.
I thank God that for me HE is my Presence and Strength and for all reading this may you also chart a ‘hello’ path today rich with HOPE for ‘better’ and BEAUTY.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
