A few words to the wise

 Wish I could tell you where this originated.

2015102831

It’s easy to tell others to take risks. It’s harder to live by that rule, especially if you’re wise enough to consider the consequences. Have faith. Take a leap and trust that someone will catch you.

 

Weigh your choices.

 

Don’t hesitate to give to a stranger but don’t give everything away.

 

Be who you are. Everybody else is taken.

 

Life is short. Have the courage to leave a miserable job, if you’ve tried everything you can. The same is true of a miserable relationship, as long as you’re not hurting your children. If you’re afraid you might be, weigh the value of staying in a struggling relationship against the possible outcome of moving on.

10-16Advice-300x210

Don’t be afraid to move on and move forward. Don’t let fear hold you back.

 

Don’t be afraid to love; don’t wear your heart on your sleeve.

 

Remember that life is what happens while you’re making other plans.

4-18 Contests

Consider your body, with all its imperfections, a gift from God. Treat it well and know what you can and cannot change.

Accept what you cannot change; change what you can; ask for the wisdom to know the difference.

Be grateful for what is right in your life.

R & Me

A delightful read that will teach you much about the process of discerning what is right for you.”    ~~Linda Marshall, author of A Long Awakening to Grace

Instead of continuing to search for a mate who is a mirror of ourselves, who is the most intelligent, wealthy, successful, witty, etc., embrace the person who is authentic and trustworthy, with styles or attributes that we lack, who brings out the best in us.” ~~L. Kain 

 

 

 

 

Never Too Late is Launched to the World

Never Too Late

What makes this book launch special?

Truthfully, it’s the characters and their story that make this book special. It’s not about the launch. There’s no big party to celebrate. Our party is an ongoing, everyday life that we live together. Who could ask for anything better than that?

 

Why should you care?

 

Happily ever after is not a fairy tale. But don’t worry. We have plenty of conflict and uncertainty before we arrive at that conclusion. Rejoice with us in a marriage that worked. Pick up a copy today. Never Too Late

Never Too Late — Pre-orders on 11-15-17

NEVER TOO LATE:

A 62-year-old goes from Wannabe to Wife

by B. Lynn Goodwin

 

never too late cover

How does a 62-year-old woman who’s never been married find happiness with a two-time widower seeking his third wife on . . . Craigslist!? Does she throw caution to the wind and relinquish her freedom, or should she take a crash course in compromises?

Author B. Lynn Goodwin tells all and more in NEVER TOO LATE. How she was attracted to Richard’s clear expectations, his honesty, and his incredible openness. She’d never met anyone like him.

Would she recognize love if it knocked on her heart? And could an educated woman be happy moving into a blue-collar world?

Whether you’ve been single forever, are trapped in an unhappy marriage, or you’re simply curious, you’ll find secrets to a happy marriage in NEVER TOO LATE.
