Book News!

I did it! With Nathan's help and superior skill, I navigated through and self-published my book, Poppies in December. I really don't know what has kept me from doing this earlier, but now that it's done, I love it.

Lulu was really amazing. Everything about it was easy and straight forward, and the finished product is something I am very, very pleased with. If you are interested, you can go look at Poppies in December on lulu by clicking here.

Poppy's story is something I am so grateful for. Sometimes it seems more like a dream than a reality that she was really here, living and breathing for a short time, before going on to her forever home. But when I think about the transformation she brought to my life, when I remember her impact on so many hearts, and when I consider the ways that God uses her when I don't even know it, I am reminded that the reality of her life is no dream. It is a miracle.

God thank you for Poppy! Thank you for the blessing she has brought and continues to bring to our lives.

I've started reading it. I'm only on page 9 and it's hard to read through my tears. I will try to read some more later while the kids are napping.
What a great accomplishment!

yes, it's basically the same thing that I've had finished for over a year. I added bits and pieces, but for the most part, i finally just put it in book format instead of copies from kinkos =)

miss you and love you!
