A Tough December

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. Our Christmas was more awesome than usual because we are thankful to still have our son, his wife and four children with us. The house they were renting burned down a week before Christmas. Thankfully no one was home at the time. They were able to salvage some memorabilia (the drawing above is a drawing that the four children drew and it was a piece of memorabilia that was saved) and the Christmas presents, but lost everything else. Our friends, family and the community have been so wonderful in giving donations of money, food, clothing, etc. An area restaurant made them Christmas dinner and other area restaurants have given gift certificates. An area dry cleaner offered to clean anything that was cloth that they were able to salvage, an area hair salon gave a gift certificate for hair cuts for the whole family, and so many other wonderful stories. It reaffirms my belief that people are good, people are really good. Our daughter and her family have opened their home to he and his family until they are able to get their own place.

Also, the day after Christmas, our 14-year-old Pit Bull/Boxer mix, Little Face, decided to walk out into the woods that she loved, to die. We checked with all the neighbors and walked the woods that we were able to, but weren’t able to find her. She has come to me in two dreams to let me know that she is young again and running through puddles like she used to. We miss her terribly, but she is at peace now and we will see her again someday.

So, as you can see, December has been a tough month for Lady Linda and me. That is why I didn’t have it in me to write a blog last week (12-23-20).

As far as news on You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! goes, we have decided to change the cover of You’re Amazing. Our tech guru, Shane, will be testing the new covers on Facebook and Instagram to see which one sells the book best, so keep an eye out and let us know which cover you like the best.

Next week I will have a new story for you. Stay safe and healthy!

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! its’ message is profound. One could only hope that the message of love and understanding of one’s self as well as the people around them will catch on like a wild fire across the entire world. In my book, You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!, the reader answers questions at the end of each story and discovers for themself that they are as amazing as any other spirit on this planet. No better, but every bit as good as any other spirit. Once the reader understands that they are amazing, the only thing left for them to do to have true happiness is to find their passion.

If you are not doing what is your passion, you are living in an alternate reality. Every second that you live outside of your passion feels like a lifetime of misery. In You’re Amazing we stress how important it is that you find your passion. For this reason, we have a section in You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! that shows you one of the ways to find your passion and help in your journey to find your purpose in life.
