Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Award-winning children's author, Donna McDine

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Before the hustle bustle of the next two weekends commence, I wanted to connect with you today to wish you a blessed holiday season and happy 2023!

As you know from my previous posts my diagnosis of polycythemia vera threw me for a loop and I'm happy to share my blood work continues to stay at normal levels. The doctors and I continue to be very pleased. Can you see me doing my Snoopy Happy Dance?

My ask to you all today, is to embrace life to the fullest, have fun, don't allow disagreements to fester, and to love ones self and those you are connected deeply and joyfully. 

I'd enjoy hearing what your holiday plans are and your 2023 intentions. Email me today! 

For me my 2023 intentions are to stay connected with my friends and family, my writing critique partners and Reiki clients and students. I am thrilled to continue my focus on submitting my picture book manuscript to publishers and agents as well as my edits to my middle grade manuscript.  

Until we next connect, stay well, safe, and most of all be kind to yourself!
