I’m sitting here today with my very own copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul – Grandmothers. It feels good to be a part of this world-renowned publication. It’s been a long time coming because I’ve submitted at least four times in the past and never succeeded. Preseverance is gold. My story is about the first time I was allowed to stay with my first grandson alone. Hmmmm. Look for my contribution is on page 26 and a brief bio on page 354.

For those who are not familiar with Chicken Soup for the Soul books, they publish real stories from real people and are translated in 40 languages and found in more than 100 countries. The goal is to offer hope, comfort, inspiration, and improve lives everywhere.

The second bit of news is that after 28 years as a travel agent, I have retired. My emotions are mixed. I will now have more time to write and spend time with my family, but at the same time…what will I do at 8:00 a.m. each workday morning? The first week I hit the gym, but admit I’m already getting bored with that, so I’m betting something else will soon that its place.
