People have told me that I should write a book about my life. I have fancied the idea on one or more occasions, but can't muster the courage to make an attempt.

I have found recently however, that my "life" truly parallels chapters of a brilliant novel.

As I sit here in transition from Part I of my book to Part II, I reflect on the chapters of my recent past, caught up in the mystic yet turbulent whirlwind of events that precede me.

Characters in a book add vibrant color and charisma to any story. Whether you fall in love with them or painfully agree to disagree, you simply cannot have a good story without great characters. The latest characters in my story have supported and helped mold me into a stronger leading role toward my next chapters. There are times though; I fear turning the page, wondering what will happen next in my sometimes love story, fictional, reality, drama-show novel. It is then I realize that each day is but a living page. I can't deny it, I can't avoid it, and whether I want to engage or not, I have to be a part of it.

So as we reflect on our past and the last few moments of 2009, I ask you dear friends, what is your novel about? Do you embrace the characters in your life? Are you living out the chapters in your book as reality, drama, romance, or a life of fiction?

I must take the time now, to thank the characters in my last few chapters. I need not mention names. I just want to thank them, for being a part of my glorious life living novel.

Have an intimate day & a beautiful New Year!
