I'm just going to be mad

I’m just going to be mad.

“Refrain from anger and turn from wrath.” Psalm 37:8

I felt like Scrooge with two overly nice people on either side of me, part of me wanted to join in on the conversation but no I was going to be mad. I could feel myself hunching up, I didn't want to hear one more word but I couldn't ignore it, if I listened I knew my madness would melt away and I didn't want it to. I wanted to be mad I wanted to be miserable. Even when they asked me a question I remained silent. I wanted them to be mad, I wanted them to know how mad I was but they stayed as happy and chipper as ever. So I decided to make sure they did know.      
 “Why are ya’ll so happy? I’m not having any fun!” I said in a haughty tone.                                  
“I’m sorry, what do you want to talk about?”                                                                        
This was not what I wanted, I wanted this to silence them and for us all to be mad together, so I remained silent.                                            
“Do you want to play a game?”
“No I don’t want to play a game, I don’t want to do anything!’ I yelled knowing I was being way over dramatic.
“I’m sorry, then we’ll just go talk over there.” she said and they both walked away.
I wanted to run after them and say I was sorry too, but that would mean I wouldn't be mad anymore and I didn't want to stop being mad so I ran into the forest
“They’ll probably have more fun without me.” I thought madly. “Maybe they’ll come begging me to play, but of course I would say no.”
Nope I was just going to be mad.
“Hi!”  Said a very happy voice.
Oh great here’s yet another happy person I don’t want to be around.
“What do you want?” I asked glaring at her.
“I just came to see how you were doing.”
I could feel my madness melting away and I didn't like it, but I couldn't help it her smile was so big and her eyes were lit up with happiness so I just had to smile back. As we talked my madness melted away and was replaced by happiness. By then end of the conversation I could even remember why I had been mad about.  

I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt like this a lot, I just want to be mad, I just don’t want to be happy I just want to sulk and then something happens {Oh something shinny!} and I forget all about be mad. Happiness and forgiveness are two of the happiest feelings in the world, thankfully my family has helped me experience both. “Do not let the sun go down on your anger.” Ephesians 4:26  


This is a post a wrote up just for fun about a year and a half ago and in was posted on MOHL. :D I found it and decided to re-post it for ya'll. :)

The McNeil Adventures

Oh wow!!! After over a year of work with Cindy, Trinity, Alli, Marissa, Kyle, Tara, Kelly, Carol, Mr. & Mrs. McNeil, Ann, Edmond and Trevor I have finished writing The McNeil Adventures! And in all that time I just now learned how to spell Adventures, spell checker always helped me with that. :) It has been an amazing book, with lots of fun twists that I didn't anticipate and a lot of editing. Its been awesome. :D My next book is Danger In The Distance.


Random check in. :) I think that's what blogs are for, for all us people who don't have Facebook to have somewhere to tell people what were up to. :) 

I've been spending my morning working on The McNeil Adventures, (my current book) trying to get it done before November so it wont get in the way of NaNo, I just reached 12.000 words, which makes me doubt I can reach 50.000 next month but its worth a shot right? :) I'm having a lot of fun with this story and Cindy (My main character.) but trying to finish up a novel in a week that you've been working on for a whole year is a bit scary, sad and supper exciting to think I'm really going to be done with it. Now for all you experienced authors out there I'm sure 12.000 words is probably about what you edit out of your books. So it doesn't sound like much, but for a novice like me its extremely good. :D

Well I hope ya'll all have a great day! Happy writing!

If you don't want to hear miscellanies facts about my life and photos that probably are more fun for me then you then this is probably not the blog for you because I'm going to tell you about yet another of my pets. :) My dog Luke, he's a Australian Shepard and he is the most awesome dog in the world. :) 

Luke and Toothless curled up together. :) 

Luke avoiding Cuddles, our rather cranky cat. 

Have you ever seen a look like that on a dog before? Its my favorite picture of Luke because its so him. :) Its a ' "I'm in trouble aren't I?" :)

He had just had a hair cut and looked rather silly but he was more then happy. :D

Supper dog coming to the rescue!
