Time to Chill!

©Kathleen Rietz
Waiting for good news can be so hard at times. Life can change in the blink of an eye. Creatively speaking, I have had so many new things going on that I just want to blab about, but can't yet. And then, last Thursday one of the books that was assigned to me was suddenly "unassigned" to me. Friday (July 4th!!) I was involved in a pretty horrible car accident and rushed to the emergency room. Well, when I got home that night, I discovered that my kitchen sink was leaking! LOL! It is said these things happen in threes. I am trying really hard to keep my chin up. I am just looking for some good news...and some "chill time".

This was the sample piece I submitted for the book assignment. I got a nice portfolio piece out of it. : )

Hi Kate, I really like this piece. I has a wonderful and wistful sense of calm.........I wish I could enjoy some outdoor Yoga today...we are having stormy weather again.

Your summer may have started out with some crummy things happening, but lets hope the rest of the summer is bright and cheery and leak free.

Chin up... Chill out. Good news is surely on the way.

Kate,
I'm so sorry for the onslaught of difficulties that hit you recently. I hope you are OK after the accident! How scary. I'm also sorry about the book job. What a downer. I guess it wasn't going to be the one for you. I know that better jobs and books will come your way. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Try to rest and recuperate.

Thanks Amy! I appreciate your prayers and empathy! Today I got good news, which I am about to post above....

Sometimes God takes away one thing so He can give us something better.

Oh My Word Kate!! I am so sorry to hear this. That is just awful. Words really do escape me. Just know that you are in my prayers for complete and speedy recover.

I just love this new style Kate. This girl is adorable.
