Story Time!

I don't know about the title for this blog but I couldn't think of one I liked so I just struck with this one!
I am happy today, I submitted a little story to be included in a book by Whoopie Pie Pam Jarrell, the leader of my online book club and it was printed in the book. I wrote about my son Joseph's second Christmas when he had 7 seizures and how we spend Christmas at my daughter's instead of at my house. It came out yesterday on Kindle so I took my ipad and went to visit my mother and had her read it, she replied that is good and all of it is true. She didn't sound like she was that excited for me but I guess I am excited enough for my whole family. I think the librarians showed me my support and there were a few friends and 2 family members (one being my granddaughter Tori and my nephew's girlfriend) that also showed me support. Yes I know it isn't that big of a deal and I'm not a famous author nor am I getting paid for it but having my name in print is a joy to me. I hope that doesn't sound like I am being prideful, I am not trying to be. I am just glad to be counted as a friend among the Whoppie Pie Bookclub gang. I think if anyone buys this book and the first one by Whoopie Pie Pam they be won't be disappointed but inspired by the collections of Christmas stories. They might even want to use these books as a yearly read every year. And they might even find a new recipe or two that might became a favorite one.
