I think about Jenifer Huston and how she is coping with the deaths of her mother, brother and nephew. It is like a dream turning into a nightmare. One day, Jenifer has rise from poverty; the next, she has to say goodbye to the three people she loves. It is sad when you get want you always wanted, only to have something else taken away from you.
I remember a friend of mind who told me that when she was a baby, her father died. And when she was sixteen, her mother also passed. I met her in church. Her name was Teresa. I don’t know what has happened to her since I don’t go to church often. I hope she remembers me. I remember her words: We’re only here once, and all of our treasures we hold dear can one day be taken away in a heartbeat. We must always remember to count our blessings, thank God, pray; and don’t count on earthly items.
She’s right. I pray everyday. I thank God that I still have a family and count my blessings. I still think of Jenifer Huston. One day I’ll become rich. But for now, the only thing that I’m rich on our my blessings. Mybe you should count your blessings today.
Today, I was suppose to post something on my blog. But, I don’t know what to write right now. What I do know is that from now on, I’ll be posting my stories and poems on my blog. I’ve posted most of my work so far; I’m ready to do more. And this time, I won’t have to wait ’til 2009 to get cracking. The reason why I am slow is because of the holidays coming up.
I’ll be away from the computer for a little while. I haven’t forgotten about you, my wonderful fans. In no time, you’ll be seeing new works posted on the blog. Don’t threat, now. Have a nice day!
How I miss Halloween. The candy, the dressing up, and the parties. I miss them all. All I can do to celebrate is by watch TV and reading books that have Halloween themes. My cousin’s birthday is on Halloween and I’m not there to wish him a Happy Birthday. No Trick -or- Treaters ever come to my door. How I cry because I am growing up.
I remember the golden days of Halloween! Where all the children came in exodus to get candy. The parties and the cosplay contest. I long for those days again. Now, we all have to grow up for all of this. I long for Halloween once more. Happy Brithday, Cousin! And Happy Halloween! Happy Halloween to you all!
After a short break, I’m back on track. I hope you guys and gals will take time on my poll. I’m writing my novel ‘Such Sweet Sorror’right now. The novel won’t be finished until January 2009. The same with my stories and poems; I won’t have anymore new stories until 2009. I thank my Mom, Dad, my family and friends for making this blog a blast! And I also thank my fans for visiting me and posting up their thoughts and feeling. Thank you!
Write a lot, read a lot. Have a blog or notebook and write everyday. The same with reading. Read what you can in books or on blogs. Make time to read and write. Make the world your reading and writing place. When you come across a pen, a pencil or a piece of blank paper or notebook, it is a sign that you must keep writing. The same thing with a book; keep reading. Don`t give up. In order to be a better writer, you must discipline yourself to write a lot and read a lot. Write a lot everyday; read a lot everyday, and don`t stop.
In the post-terrorist attacks and the ongoing war in Iraq, The Terrorist by Caroline B Cooney is a great book for this century. The story begins with a sister’s eleven-year old brother on his way to school. The brother is handed a package by a stranger. In an instant, the boy is snuffed out by a blast of the bomb.
The novel deals with grief, sadness, and loss in the wake of terrorism. But the book also deals with love, trust, hatred and death. The novel is deeply dark and heartbreaking, but it is a good read. Although The Terrorist was published over 11 years ago (1997), the book still rings true in 2008. Make time to read this page-turner today!
