Writing a book was always a dream of mine. The thought of being able to hit keys on my computer and bring someone to laughter or tears miles and days later still amazes me. I thank God for granting me this pleasure.
In all of my author-fantasies I never imagined the opportunity to share with the world something so dear to me. A couple of weeks ago I met a wonderful woman/author/mother on a writers’ podcast. Jeannie Ewing and I seemed to click right away and when we discovered the extraordinary thing we have in common, I was stunned. God has blessed each of our families with a special child.
