I just want to say thank you to my new followers. It was such an amazing encouragement to get online today and read the comments posted! I actually cant believe that my words would interest anyone. Yes, I have published a book. Yes, I know many have bought and read and loved it. Yet, at the same time I am still amazed that I write.
Words are such an extraordinary privilege. Words are magic. English is my second language, and every day I still struggle with the concept of the right word for the right time. But I guess we all struggle with that sometimes. Whether or not you speak a different language, the right use of words can make or break a situation. Or a person. How often do we speak before we think? How much better as individuals would we be if we took the time to consider out speech?
Did you know that a harsh or criticizing word will stay with a person forever? We may never know the mark we leave on someone. And if we are touching lives with our words, why not make them better. Bring a smile to someone’s face. Cheer a weary soul. Bring joy into someone else’s life. We have the power to make someone’s life better, why not do something great with that? And if that’s not enough remember – “Be nice to people: remember, they outnumber you several billion to one.”
Now, I wanted to let everyone know that I will be posting a little bit of my book on here. There will be no real order to the postings from the book because I will be picking randomly. I will be posting once a week from my book. So keep checking back, and please spread the word! Thank you!

It's one of my greatest aspirations; to write a book someday!
Mine too! That's why I thought I'd drop in and comment when I saw your comment on someone's blog. Takes a lot of dedication though, and I find myself stumped half way through what seemed like a good idea all too often.
That's a link to your book on amazon.co.uk, it doesn't seem to be available yet, but keep me up to date 🙂
