My Day of Blessing at Tealeaves!
The day of my reading/signing had arrived and I was nervous! Would anyone come?
THEY CAME! In fact, thirty people crowded into the back room of Tealeaves!
My brother Phil and...
my son Noah kept adding chairs.
People I've never met came! I enjoyed meeting them.
Lynne, the owner of English Tealeaves, introduced me.
I talked a little bit about tea.
And then I read my story out of Chicken Soup. People laughed, cried, cheered and gave me money. Well, they sort of sniffled a little. Maybe next time they'll throw money.
I signed copies of the book. The tearoom sold out!
Afterwards, I took a picture with some gals from my Words for The Journey Christian Writers Guild group (and Noah who took most of the pictures)
I took a picture with my best friend and biggest supporter John.
After it was all over, I couldn't stop smiling. The Lord God has blessed me beyond measure! To live my dream is a gift I will not take for granted!
