Good People

There are truly some good people in the world and I'm so glad that many of them are in my world. Some of the main ones for me lately:

Karen Rose. Can I just say I really love her? Yes, you already know that. But, I sent her an e-mail to tell her how much I loved her book and she's been e-mailing me a couple of times reminding me not to give up. How cool is that?

My friend Deb. She's working with me on revisions, keeping me positive and sharing her own masterpieces with me. She is an inspiration without even realizing it.

Monarch of the Glen. Yes, I watched the series finale. Again. I actually cried this time. And it just fills my heart with how much that show inspires me to be the best writer I can be and to write my Scottish stories with no frills, cliches or worn out plot devices. Just to write stories from my heart so that if I (for some strange reason) never get published, I'll still never regret a SINGLE moment spent on writing a piece of fiction.

My blog friend Eve who, out of the blue, has offered to send me a book that I've been wanting to read for months. Just out of the kindness of her heart.

And my blog friend Michelle who reminded me today why I joined my chosen profession and how thankful I should be to be able to make a positive difference in children's lives.

It's amazing how much people we have never met can make a difference in our life.

It really is! Have you seen that commercial where people do good deeds for each other? Person A helps person B who turns around and helps person C, etc. It's so very true and too many of us get caught up in our own lives without giving a second thought to others.

Thank you Christine - that was a nice thing to say. I decided to make one trip to the post office this week, so I'm going to wait and mail the book after the new contest ends tomorrow night. Depending on who gets it (in other words whether I already have that address) I should have it in the mail by Wednesday, Friday the latest.

I'm a true believer in the It's a Wonderful Life lifestyle - touch as many people as you can, you never know whose life you will positively effect.

No worries, Eve. I just bought a book at the store (only 1 thought!) today, so I have a couple to read to keep me busy until then.
