5 days until 2013 Golden Heart and Rita winners are revealed!

?????????????????????Today is packing day. Not that there’s a whole lot left to do.

Am I excited? Yes, I am! But now that the anticipation of conference is at an end, I’m feeling suddenly calm.

Boy, am I glad!

I feel like the past few months have been like climbing the ladder on a 10 meter diving board, then waiting one’s turn to leap. The butterflies disappear once you get to the actual event.

I’m as prepared as I can be. The best thing to do now is relax, enjoy the conference (especially seeing old friends, meeting new ones), and smile.

It’s not too tall an order, after all! 🙂

    Although, I gotta say, I just typed an email to a fellow Lucky 13 sister and ended with, “See you tomorrow.”

    WHOA!!! Deep breath here!


    Road trip, check in, and the fun begins! This week is going to whiz by soooooo fast…

    Hi Leslie,

    Time does fly. Soon GH will be 5 days in the past. All of the Romantics will be better for it. Enjoy the present. Glad you are calm. What’s your secret?

    God Bless,

      HA! No secret. But remembering that my present and future are ultimately in God’s hands takes any sting out of anxiety. I am reminding myself frequently!

      I hope you blog about your experience with the Catholic Writers Conference Live! Tomorrow we drive – and I get to meet many of my Golden Heart co-finalists, which will be a treat. 🙂

      Now I’m off to get a good night’s sleep.

    You are expanding my horizons. I never did Twitter before. Thanks for the directions and HAPPY TIMES!

    God Bless,
