Making the Impossible Possible

Traveling brings me home. I arrive at unexpected places, feeling  like I've come home -- places I never knew I had     yearned to experience.   These grandiose vistas take my breath away. Their existence seem to me an   impossibility of creation, teaching  me that anything that is worthwhile   is possible...
Given time.

 If an abundance of money lay at my fingertips, I would consider myself poor if Mother Nature was not within my  reach to not offer her bountiful splendor.

This is Trillium Lake in Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon. Even though the campgrounds were full I was lucky to have the luxury of staying in the overflow parking  fifty feet from this beautiful lake for five nights at $11.50 per night.
 How lucky can a girl be?  I spent my days writing and reading, walking the path that led the circumference of the lake and sharing a campfire with neighboring campers.

Do you think these two trees knew they would be entwined when they were only saplings? An example of patience and the rewards of time.

Chetco Point, Brookings, Oregon: The ravages of the ocean

on a cloudy, windy, rainy day make me wonder how anything survives when nature’s anger challenges the world around us. The sea's power reminds me that I am but a raindrop in force of the wind and the water. But I will not forget, without the raindrop, no oceans or lakes would exist. Never underestimate your power of creation.

What is my challenge?

 Make the impossible possible. 
Never quit. 
Just keep growing, no matter what storms or droughts come my way, I hope to   embrace my experiences and become stronger and better. All I need to do is be me and  strive to become great. Like the California redwoods and  like Oregon’s Mt Hood, the sky Is the limit!  Like all the rivers, lakes and oceans, they all began with one raindrop.

Meet life head on!
                                Live The Good Life!

Judy Howard

The death of Judy Howard’s husband gave the author a wake up call. Life is short. Howard sold her pet grooming business, which she had operated since the age of eleven and engaged full throttle into her new passions of writing and traveling.

Judy Howard’s writing career expands across many genres, including memoir, romantic mystery, reality fiction, travel and young adult, and now with THE GRIEVING GIFT, an autobiographical novel.

In all of Howard’s books the theme is always the same - overcoming life’s difficulties.

Judy lives full-time in her Winnebago motorhome with her cat, Sportster,   traveling across the country as a motivational speaker and offering writing seminars.

When Judy and Sportster are not traveling, they spend their time in Sun City, California.

 an autobiographical novel

Janice’s older sister, Margaret, wanted to believe that the L.A. doctors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center held a magical deck of cards, but after eight years of treatment they dealt their final card. The Hospice card. No miracles for Margaret. Janice reassures her big sister she will be there, holding her hand every step of the way.
On a death watch, you get to know things about a person you wish you didn’t. It is like a roller coaster ride. And like most rides, it brings us back to the place we began, reminding us of who we were and who we have become.

The twists and turns of Janice’s emotional journey transports her back through the repercussions of her teen pregnancy and into the present estrangement from her daughter, whom she has not heard from for the last sixteen years.

Coming to terms with the grief of losing her sweet Margaret, and dealing with her fear of a lonely future is too much for Janice to imagine. When Margaret’s soul goes to rest in L.A. heaven, how will Janice face the emptiness? Will there be such a thing as a Grieving Gift?
