I'm about done with all of my new books from fellow online authors I know...has anyone read anything lately that is a MUST READ that's been published in the last two years? Don't worry if you think I've read it, just share.

For all of you who haven't had a chance to get Princess Peepers yet, it's coming out in paperback through Scholastic Book Clubs next month in the Seesaw pages...that's for the Kindergarten/1st grade set.
If your school doesn't get Scholastic Book Club order forms, here's the link: Princess Peepers on pg 4
Happy first day of Fall!

Over the Labor Day holiday, my family and I flew to the Hill country in Texas to meet up with my hubby's family at a fun dude ranch resort. My mother-in-law received news this summer that she has CUP--cancer of unknown primary and it's hit her very hard and quickly. She wanted us to surround her with love as she goes through...well, how should I describe it...all I can call it is hell. Chemo has taken a very strong woman and turned her into a tiny weak kitten. But she kept up with all of us remarkably well--even staying up until 11:45 at night playing Apples to Apples.
I've been very blessed to have her as my mother-in-law. Her sharing with me and treating me as a friend when I was dating her son gave us a great start for our relationship throughout my 20 year marriage. She also was the one to invite me to her Bible study group where I felt Jesus wrap His arms around me in nonjudgemental love and I accepted Him.
I owe her my wonderful life.
And so it's been hard to think that her life may be taken away ubruptly. She's only 67.
I'm holding out for a miracle.
