A gentle thought for you to ponder as you journey through this week. I do not know who said it but it resonated with me.
WHAT YOU ARE BECOMING IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT YOU ARE ACCOMPLISHING.
Simply be ALL it is possible to be with Love and Kindness being the hallmark of your life.
Character is being formed all life-long. LIVE WELL! LIVE JOYFULLY! LOVE EXPANSIVELY!
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.

this is great faye….yes, character is far more important than the accomplishment in life….there are times when people have so much accomplishments but they achieve it through force or cheating….
