I sold another story to Chicken Soup!

Every time a writer gets published it is a thrill!!! And when I received official confirmation that a story I wrote would be in another Chicken Soup book, it was no exception.

I am tickled to be able to announce that a story I wrote, "A Child's Gratitude," will be included in Chicken Soup for the Soul Tough Times, Tough People. This book will be officially released in June.

The story I wrote describes the moment that my son Noah saw his father in the hospital after John was in a motorcycle accident. Noah's reaction and tears taught me gratitude for life after a horrible incident. When I read the story to John and Noah, Noah said he liked it and then asked, "Do you get paid for this?"

When I said yes, my little guy began immediate negotiations for his cut. :0)

And after much haggling, I am proud to announce that Noah is getting 14%. :0)

Thank you Jesus for this journey!!
