A Couple of Amazing Days

When I asked my daughter what she thought I should blog about, she gave me a tired smile and said, “Babies.”  As the mother of two daughters, a newborn and a seventeen-month-old, that’s pretty much all that’s in her brain right now.  Since I’ve been around to help her out for a few days, that’s mostly what I’ve been thinking about, too (And, by the way, how could I have forgotten how busy and fast a seventeen-month-old is?  My granddaughter makes IronMan look like he’s rusted in place!).  Matters were made a little more complicated by a miscommunication about the baby’s due date and her reluctance to enter the world.   She finally made her grand entrance a few hours before the release of the Sweet Christmas Kisses boxed set in which I have a book along with thirteen other wonderful authors.

Because of the current craziness in my life, my participation in all the activities for our launch have been somewhat limited so I am publically thanking my fellow authors who have stepped up to run contests and parties, advertise, blog, and post responses to reader input.  You are remarkable authors and hard-working women.  I’m proud to be in this project with you. 

For me, the best part of this book launch has been reading the posts from readers, learning a little about their lives and what interests them.  Everyone has a busy life and daily challenges, and there are many people going through hard times but they make the effort to read our books and let us know they enjoyed them.  It’s humbling and exhilarating all at the same time.  For that reason, along with the birth of my granddaughter, and hearing good news about the health of a loved one, September 29th and 30th 2014 are two days I’ll always remember.    


  1. Really, Grandma, where are the photos? Congrats and best wishes to the little one.

  2. Lovely post, Patricia! So happy for your family with the blessed new addition. I'm fortunate to be along for the ride with all of you talented authors.
