What My Mother Taught Me

We learn so many things from our parents. But something that I will always be grateful to my mother for teaching me is that I can have anything I want–as long as I’m willing to work hard to get it.

She is clever in her life lessons. When you work toward something and are investing your time and energy in the acquisition of whatever it is that you want, you begin to look at what you want differently. You’ll ask yourself “Do I really want to spend all this time working for this? Is it worth it?”

The answers to those questions will usually alter the desires or “wants” that you have. Cold Stone Creamery has a huge ice cream serving that they have labeled the “gotta have it”.  Giving of yourself to gain something will let you know fairly quickly if you just “gotta have it”.

And mom was right (she always is). I know when something is important enough to dig in and give it my all and when it is only a passing fancy. My “gotta have it” is writing. I will work as hard as I have to in order to achieve the goal I’ve set for myself.

So, if you just “gotta have it”, GO FOR IT with all your might.

Have a Jesus-filled week.

About KD Fleming

KD Fleming's romance writing adventure began on a dare. But the real adventure started after she discovered she had the heart of a storyteller. Writing both sweet and inspirational stories about strong women who could be any one of us, her heroines are sassy and fierce. And once their hearts are engaged by the man who is destined for them, there's no chance the hero won't fall--but what a way to go. KD lives in sunny Florida with her hero husband of 15+ years. She loves music (all things Casting Crowns and OneRepublic), Marvel Movies--ALL things Avengers (ahem, *Robert Downey, Jr*, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo). Oh my! She spends her time taking care of her family, reading, writing, cooking, and coming up with new ideas for fun romance stories.

    Very professional looking web site and I enjoy reading your posts. Thanks for the uplifting message.

    • Thank you Connie. My intention is to post at least once a week and more whenever possible, but unfortunately my father-in-law’s health is going through some big loop d’ loops right now and my time isn’t as much my own as I need it to be.
