As

Time goes on

Life

Becomes more beautiful

Grow.


I grow into

An Understanding

Of

Creation…

and

The Appreciation

Of

The Gift of

Life.

You don't realize how significant your life is until you've created a life and given him the best you have and see the day your contribution steps into the world! Hopefully, you've made a positive impact!

This is beautiful, bravewarrior. I re-read your profile page and I'm happy for you that you have a published book of poetry. I can understand why.

I wish you the best in your writing and dream to become a full time writer once more. BTW-your son is very handsome. I loved the first photo of the young you...reminds me of my early days with my first born. Those snapshots are priceless, aren't they?

I appreciate your email the other night. Thanks!

Rated this up and beautiful

Hi Shauna-no, I surely cannot; although I wish I could. I'm thinking that you can post this question in the forum...Hmmm, maybe the hubchallenge? Browse through the forums (NOT the sandpit-it's fun and games) to query other writers and trust me...you'll get a good response I'm sure. I do know that Amazon has a version of s.p. as well as LuLu.

Best to you. I'm so excited (and envious). When you discover this self publishing company let me know...I want to publish The Bride who Blew away.

BTW-thanks for the email. Keep in touch and let me know what you discover.

Denise, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to respond to you. I just saw your comment today! I actually published my poetry book through Lulu.com in February. Yay me!

Epi, enjoy your nap. And again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. You'd make a great agent!
