KM's Top Ten moments in 2010


A little late for top ten lists from 2010, but, since its the second month of Twilight Zone 2011, lets do it anyway!

I am more open and vibrant after 2010 than I have been in a long time. I started dating again, exercising, and broadcast my testimony regarding my struggle with drugs and alcohol via the world wide web!! I am coming into my own, comfortable in my skin.

Take a look at the top ten moments and you will see why 2010 made me anew, strong, open . . .and alive!

In the Spring. I know God whispered to me, "Take my hand, you will be going places." I have only heard a clear message from God three or four times in my life. That moment He stood so near. . . .I felt His presence. 2010 year has been crazy good for me, but not without crazy pain. But I hold his hand, and the list that follows just scratches the surface of the places He took me. [Already 2011 is proving to be just as exciting!]

April 2010 My first publication. It was the first story I sent out and The Cross and the Cosmos picked it up! SUICIDAL INSTINCT by KM Wilsher  {link on  the top of the sidebar here --- >

I entered my first contest, Genesis. I threw my high world fantasy story: COBRA CUTLASS in the ring {click here to read the summary}. And even though I didn't make the top four, two of the three judges gave Cobra a perfect score!  {Back Cover Blurb for Cobra Cutlass by KM Wilsher: Evil stalks with iron jaws, the time for J.R. to find her purpose is now.}

November 2010 The Cross and the Cosmos announced it will publish SUICIDAL INSTINCT in their 2011 Anthology and they will also include a second story of mine SUICIDE REDEEMED [a partner story to Suicidal Instinct] I WILL ACTUALLY BE IN A BOOK. . .YOU CAN PUT IT ON YOUR SHELF!

May 2010 This moment lasted the rest of 2010. I hired a personal trainer and started hiking. Exercise is truly the fountain of youth for my mind and body.

I lost 25 pounds. Do you know how much this is? I am still amazed at the difference in my body!

My nephew joined the Navy. He has to finish High School, but then he's off to be a Mineman!

The Celebrate Recovery group I started in 2008 boomed from 4 members to twelve in what almost seemed overnight. It's no longer my group, but OUR home ;0)

I launched a blog for the CR group at FCC, tenderly titled: His Path to Recovery. Check it out

Even though Grandad, passed away. God gave me a gift in June: The rare and timely opportunity to spend a few days with him in his VA home. I have not seen him that many times over the years. That visit helped me through his death. . .Somehow I knew when I left him in June, that that was the last time I'd see him. . . until we walk the Golden Streets of our Father city, Zion. {Thank you to my Saviour, my perfect love}

What are some personal top ten moments for you in 2010?

I am so proud of you, dear friend. I have seen God's work in you from the moment of our first time ever chatting online. I see Him in the words you use, the actions you take, the faith you exhibit, and the friendship you share.

Great list, KM. You rock :).

Kat, could anyone hope to receive the encouragement, education, and fun that you give? You are a real inspiration. And what you shared above . . .Well, I won't forget it.

Bring on 2011! Your year, Kat.
