Amanda was with me. So we pull into the neighborhood - me still shaking - and Amanda says she wants to stop and get the mail. I did not want to. I wanted to get home and stay home, but it was a simple request on her part so I drove past our home down the street to the mailbox to let her get out to get the mail.
And there is was in a priority mail envelope that I will probably never throw away.....was my book!!!! I opened it and the sight of the book took my breath away! Also at the mailbox I ran into a very good friend of mine whom I hadn't talked to in awhile. She was the first to see my book and give me congratulations....but she bestowed a bigger blessing on me than she will ever know.
More on that later. Right now I need to call Diana and tell her the news about the book!
