Kicking up her heels

 
Nicole's winter dance recital was last weekend.
She was a cute little snowflake holding ballet poses and tap dancing. 
I cannot believe how quickly Nicholas and Nicole have grown up. It seems only yesterday they were babies like Liam. Time sure flies when you're having fun. She's 7 and he will be 13 in a few weeks.

Writing is sort of like dancing. You have to strike a pose, believe in your abilities, practice-practice-practice even when you want to shuffle-slide away. Persistence is what it takes to succeed.

Take a moment to write down your thoughts or about something that happened in your day. Set it aside if you don't have time to write or journal about it. Come back to it, and perhaps an essay or an article will evolve.

Believe you can, and you will!

Get out there and pirouette, take a bow, do your thing with an air of confidence.

If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.

Linda--Your last line packs quite a whallop. Thanks for the reminder.

Nicole has grown up so much, and Nicholas looks like he is such a kind kid. Wow! If you blink, Nicole will be in high school and Nicholas will be married...

Dang! Those are some good-lookin' grandkids.

I'm always writing about my day. The perks of being a weirdo magnet...

Oh Linda, aren't grandchildren the best? They are such immense blessings in our lives. Your little sweetheart is a darling and the boy is handsome, too! Susan p.s. Thanks for your visits.

I have been reading your blog long enough to watch these kids grow. Nicole was so small...growning before our eyes.
