Today I had to go to the doctor , I have been really sick for the last several days , so today I finally went to the doctor and was told that I had Bronchiitis, and a really bad sinus infection. I have been sick more this year than I have been in the last 5!! But I am working with a bunch of little ones now , so I swim around in a pool of germs everyday and that to must take its course......OK so anyway, today I get an email from my beautiful DIL Traci, and it was one of those emails that says a prayer with you and that if you forward it, basically something good will happen to you.....
So first of all my Granny was a big fan of Danielle Steel and had all of her books, and while I was in High school I started reading these books with my Granny that I loved oh so much. She is gone now ,but I have her entire collection of Danielle Steel paperbacks. I know it must sound odd ,but I find great comfort when I open them up and see my Granny's name written in her handwriting.....
Ok so about a month ago Danielle Steel was on "The View", she spoke about her website and I tentatively wanted to make my own personal list of her books that I have not yet read. You see sometimes I feel guilty reading for pleasure when I should actually be reading the Bible. But sometimes in life there is just nothing better than before I go to bed at night to get lost in another world!!!!! So, I went to the website and made my list and left her a little note . You see she said on the show that she answers all of her own mail, but I never thought I would get this:
Thank you so very much for your lovely letter about my books. I was very touched to hear how long you have been reading them and what they have meant to you, going back to Wanderlust. It's heartwarming to hear that your late grandma got you started reading them, and that you inherited her collection.
I'm especially touch to hear about the girl you are adopting and about her middle name -- what an honor! Thank you again for sharing your good words with me. I appreciate hearing from a reader and caring mother like you, and I send you all my warmest regards.
With best wishes,
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?!!!!!!! I was so excited. There might be a few of you that think this is silly, but my Granny would LOVE this, and I am soooo telling her when I get to see her again. Thanks for being patient with me and listening. THANK YOU TRACI!!!LOVE YOU BIG!!!
