Some say love is a word that should not be said when talking about people you barely know, but that is not my belief. I feel love for all my WordPress friends, and I pray for you all as well.
My WordPress family enriches my life with beautiful poetry, prose, stories, and unbelievable art. Many of you know my story, and although I have three siblings, they don’t want to talk with me because they have said, “It is too painful; it just reminds me of all the pain growing up.” That saddens me in challenging ways that are too difficult to describe.
You are all my extended family. I feel a great deal of appreciation for the encouragement on my writing journey. My heart is incredibly grateful for those who have published my work. Those who have taken a chance on me are: The Finest Example, Spillwords Press NYC, Vita Brevis Press, I Write Her (featured in the anthology, “The Sound of Brilliance,” available now on Amazon!), The Tiny Seed, MasticadoresUSA (Editor: Gabriela Marie Milton) and Short Prose.
So thank you all for reading, liking, and publishing my work. I wanted to mention Gabriela Marie Milton’s new book, which I am so excited to purchase on July 31st (Gabriela’s Amazon Page). Also, I offer up a special thank you to Gabriela (Button) for all her encouragement early on while I was new to WordPress. I can never express my gratitude or the way the uniqueness of her work touches me. I know that her latest collection of work in her new book, which is for sale on Amazon on July 31st, will be an even more significant success than her first book. “Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings,” – published by Vita Brevis Press, LLC, is an exquisite book that I treasure. I think it is her mentoring and loving heart that makes her – the person so special to so many of us.
I have some Lasik work on my eyes this afternoon and three procedures on my neck. The last will be on August 9th. I hope to be back online by August 1st in between medical procedures. So please forgive the missed reads and comments. Those that know me well, also know I always have lots to say.
Sending my love, appreciation, prayers, and well wishes to you all.
