S is for Sad: Today as I write my posts and am excited about things that are happening in my life there is also a little Sadness on my heart. Today my oldest daughter and granddaughter moved out to start a new life with her husband in California. In very many ways this is a good thing. It was time for her to move on, to get her own life, to launch. But my mother’s heart is sad. She was my baby girl. We have been through a lot together including the birth of her daughter. I am happy for her and thankful to God that she has found a wonderful man with which to share her life and help her in raising my granddaughter and I wouldn’t want anything different for her. However as she drove away this morning her and I both realized that unlike the other times when we have separated, this time God willing she will never live under my roof again. All the fighting and the tension that has ensued over the years seemed to fade away as her car pulled out of my driveway and took a little piece of my heart with her.
So with a sadly, joyful heart I close the door on the past leaving a little window open so I may gaze back and remember the good things and I go boldly into a new future embracing the possibilities. Thank you God for my daughter, Katie and my granddaughter Andi. Watch over them and protect them as I let the doves fly from the nest. I love you my beautiful girls.
Lest I forget, I still have Ana at home and am looking forward to moving closer to my sons, their wives and my other two granddaughters, this summer. I love you all.
S is for Sanctuary of Nine Dragons: Sanctuary of Nine Dragons is Asha’s City, a place for peace and retreat and sanctuary. The dragons, Myrria, Alorn, Dryas, Stefano and Cielo gather there with Asha. In the third book of the trilogy like the two palaces in the first two books, becomes the focus of the book. A lot of what happens takes place there as Joachim and Brandan are forced to face the consequences of their actions. But you have to wait until you read the first two books to see what those actions are.
Five days until the release of Palace of the Twelve Pillars. Keep following my posts to get hints about what’s going to happen. Here is the link to the video trailer: http://youtu.be/PD0Jp99jZA4
