Just Breathe

On Thursday, Donna mentioned the two of us retreated for the weekend to write. She also kindly mentioned I would be accountable to post on it today :)

Well, I am glad to report that Donna and I had a successful writing/editing weekend.

The retreat was good. Sometimes life gets a bit crazy (can I get an amen?), and the small things seem bigger than they are. In the words of Carrie Underwood:

"It's so easy to get lost inside
A problem that seems so big at the time
It's like a river that's so wide
It swallows you whole
When you're sitting around thinking 'bout what you can't change
And worrying about all the wrong things
Times flying by
Moving so fast
You better make it count 'cause you can't get it back."

I needed to make my time count. The busyness of life had taken hold and I needed a breather. And now I'm back, feeling great and ready to take on the world. Look out Storymakers. I'm ready!


  1. I wouldn't have pegged you for a Carrie Underwood fan. Who knew? I appreciate the advice, however. :)

  2. A breather is always good. I'm glad it was successful.

  3. That's so awesome Deb and Donna. Way to write it up and get away. I love retreats! Can't wait to see you at storymakers! (And I love Carrie Underwood.)

  4. Thanks for being accountable. It was so great to focus on writing. Who knew 30 pages could go so quickly?
