Things around our house have been a bit on the stressful side lately. If a thing can go wrong, it is, all at the same time. I just finished telling a friend how when life throws crap at you, it's a sign that you're on to something good and other forces are trying to pull you in another direction; you have to attend to the mess but keep your eyes on the goal. Right after I said that, I thought, hm, sounds like I need to heed my own advice - since setting my start date for Walking in This World as this Sunday the 14th, everything's been piling on in heaps. Yesterday was particularly rough and at one point I just said a little prayer, "Please, God, if you can send some little good thing my way to cheer me up today, I would really appreciate it."

Within, I kid you not, one hour:

- I got hired to do two new illustrations for a magazine I love (more details to come)

- A package came for me from Snowflake with three SARK books - written on the outside was "To help you on your journey!" (I was speechless!)

- My Christmas present of this awesome out of print CD arrived and I had wonderful music to listen to all afternoon.

Here's to answered prayers and little good things.
