Not sure whether to say, "Splash!" "Help!" "God bless you." or "What am I doing here?" Whatever, I've surfaced and I hope we will have a good swim together.
I'm all into splashes. It started at birth when I arrived a month late weighing nearly 11 pounds. Although I can't remember, I imagine even then I realized life was nice in a watery womb listening to my mother's heart beat and being lulled to sleep with her every movement. I've loved water all my life.
So much so, that at a writer's conference when a teacher told me to write what I was passionate about, the first thing that entered my mind was, my bath. I love a good soak. It is there that God soothes my soul, I do my best thinking, and (please don't picture this) I wrote my first published article, "No Room in the Tub for Me." That article grew into my first book, Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Moms. I've been Splashes of Serenity (website: www.SplashesofSerenity.com E-mail: SplashesofSerenity@yahoo.com) ever since.
And that is what I hope this blog will be to you--a splash of serenity from all the things in the world that drain you. Don't throw in the towel. Come back and visit me and let's have a good swim.
