It's Liz here.
Today I am going to do what Margie does so well on blog posts. I'm going to write in pieces and parts without feeling as if a beginning, middle, and end are requirements. (I just gasped and had to force my fingers to stay on the keys because in my writer's mind, of course they're requirements.)
My daughter-in-law's birthday was yesterday. She is one of my favorite people in the world, so dear to me I don't know how to put it into words. It's different, how you feel about your kids-in-law, than how you feel about the ones they married, but the feeling is still strong, intense, and precious. Those are all things my Tahne is, too. Happy birthday, honey--love you bunches.
Next Sunday is Mother's Day. It's the first one I haven't had a mother to call, send flowers to, or go and visit. It hurts, but to my mom and my other mom, thank you. I love you bunches, too.
Kristina Knight has a new release. Don't miss Protecting the Quarterback. I'm behind--I just finished What the Bachelor Gets, but this one's waiting on my Kindle for me.
Tahne and Chris--they are my oldest set of kids--bought a house in the mountains in North Carolina near Asheville. They just took possession and are in the process of painting and having more hardwood floor laid than I've waxed in my lifetime. Two of my grandsons--they are the adventurous sort--drove eight hours to check in with their aunt and uncle and look at the new house. My granddaughter drove a couple of hours to join them at the house and they had an impromptu cousin campout. The next morning, the boys headed back to Indiana. Although my Nana radar was screaming about having all those kids on the road on the weekend undoubtedly driving too fast, I loved the adventure. I love them and they make counting my blessings like trying to fill a bag with air-filled balloons--there are just too many to confine in one place.
If you haven't looked at yesterday's post, look now and enter for the prize packs for Leigh, Melinda's, and my Heartwarming releases.
I am sick of rain. Just sayin'... But I still love Mondays, and new books, and friends who write them, and other friends, and family...
Have a great week.
