* A Sigh of Joy, Relief, Happiness, Disbelief, Pride *

What could I possibly mean?



I'm amazed and relieved that I finally sent my memoir off to my editor around midnight last night. How completely mind-boggling it is to write or speak those words! I'll post updates as I know of them. 


This is me during the years of writing my memoir.
(No, that is not an earring, it is the doorknob behind me)

I extend my sincerest Thank-You to all of you who've helped me along the way, by your friendship and your words of encouragement. There are way too many to even try to mention by name....but I think you know who you are! 


** And to all of you that I owe e-mails and/or snail mail, I hope to start getting caught up on those now, too.....Well, actually that would be AFTER I clean house for our Saturday's Family Thanksgiving!!...And  I could possibly use a gentle reminder, too! **



   
Natalie Merchant - "Thank You"

If I could sing, I would sing this song to you! Actually that IS me singing. I dubbed my voice over the You Tube video! Nawww, I'm just kiddin'!
