I Need To Get Over Myself


Has everyone recovered from Thanksgiving?  Mine was easy, we went out to eat.  No mess.  No leftovers.  But next year I have to cook.  I'll think about that when the time comes...

When I wrote Gracie's Diary, I never really thought anyone would be interested in reading it...  aside from family and close friends.  So I have to say that the 'attention' that I am getting is a little uncomfortable at times.  This is the second week in a row that my pastor at church has made the announcement about my book.  Last week he had me stand up in front of the 200+ people there.  Ugh!  I know.  I need to get over myself, right?  

So yesterday I had fun getting the free books ready to send out to the winners of the Thanksgiving drawing.  Hopefully you will get your books within a week or so.  

It's been a busy time here.  The book.  The husband.  The grandkids.  Work.  The dog.  Christmas.  

The house is a mess.  But I'll think about that tomorrow... 

My 2nd book review: (its kind of exciting to get on Amazon and find out someone said something nice about your book. I'm just waiting on the 1st bad one, where my heart will drop... and then I'll say, 'what do they know?'  LOL.  sour grapes, right)

I finished reading this book over the Thanksgiving break, curled up with my little dog. I can see why this is a story that the author felt needed to be written for it was one of faith, endurance and pure commitment. I found myself completely captivated by the lives and the stories told within the pages of this book. I was new to the subject of "parent alienation" and felt that the author did a very excellent job in explaining this and how everyone involved was affected. I admired how she and her husband continue to be advocates for this cause. I was truly blessed by this story, knowing that Bobbi's strength comes from Christ (and knowing that He provided Gracie for the journey). Gracie's Diary portion was truly priceless (and laugh out-loud!). Thank you for sharing your story!



Dear Diary,  Mom says this is the time of year I get clingy.  A girls gotta stay warm.  I am resourceful.  She should be thankful for a very smart dog.  Gracie.
