Gratitude

Linking with Laura at Faith Filled Fridays   and Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday

"Life's not  measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." Hilary Cooper

The week has been wild,wonderful....perfect. Everything's come together like an orchestra in beautiful symphony. It's all left me stunned.... amazed....and mostly thrilled.  This week. I'm over the moon thankful for.....

-My dentist.....I was about an hour in the chair...had a couple of x-rays taken and when I went to pay....all he charged was $23. When I told him he made a mistake he smiled and said, "No. I didn't."
-Got the final proof for Dancing Softly. It's perfect. I absolutely love how it turned out. The books will be here next wed. Nov. 14. Yeahhhh. It's done!!!!
-Standing in line at the post office, two women asked if they could see the book. When they handed it back, they gave me their information and said they want a copy when it's out. Blew me away.
-Came home and some government lady showed up at the door doing a survey on mental illnessf. She said it's b/c more people are reporting they're suffering from it. I gave her a flyer for my book and she's coming back next week when the book is out.
-Mostly....since He came into my world...broke through the pain and darkness...life has been one huge incredible awesome adventure

My dgt. made a video trailer of the book.....Hope you like it.

can't wait to get that on my kindle like I did with In the eye of deception which I loved, by the way.
I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for your nice message. It is one of the most beautiful things anyone has said to me.

I'll be sure to look for your book. My sister battled mental illness for 20 years before her death. Sometimes it's difficult for me to enjoy a book based on mental illness, but yours sounds inspiring. Thanks for sharing. (Visiting from Faith Filled Fridays linkup.)
