I have so many blessings, some days I can’t keep count.
To start, I love people.
I love all sorts of people.
It is so nice meeting people; those of you who shop thrift stores and we casually talk, someone I bump into while moving furniture into Qcumberz who starts up a conversation about vintage finds or getting an email from someone who's read The Memory Catcher.
Thank heavens for friendly people.
Like Norma.Qcumberz. We just kinda bumped into one another and started talking. Norma stays in touch through our blog and a few weeks ago, she invited us to lunch. We caught up on things we've found thrifting and the idea of Norma opening up her own space at an antique mall, but mostly we talked about life and the love of our families. I felt wrapped in friendship with these two ladies and appreciated Norma's sweet invitation.
Or, like Kathy.
Or like Ted and Rex.
Or like Nancy.My Dear Lucy with a mountain full of edits, I blogged about how overwhelmed I was. You can read about that here. Editing is not my thing, although I was willing to to put my best effort forward. When Nancy read about my predicament she called and asked if she could help.
"I have a week off work and love editing. I have experience and want to edit your book for you," she said.
I felt a warmth come over me and I knew she had been sent to me as a gift. She has now completed the manuscript and the edits are amazing. I'm going through a final read, adding a bit more history and will hopefully send it out to my publisher in about a week.
Or like Gilberto.
Speaking of amazing people, the counselor surprised me on the way home from work a few days ago. He stopped by the local Deseret Bookstore and took a few pictures of The Memory Catcher sitting there on the shelf.
