A Book-Signing Event

A Book-Signing Event.

There once was a little girl
who dreamt of being a mom.

Her dreams came true
with two sweet little boys

who she loved so dearly,
and they grew into men.

The mom was so proud and happy,
but missed being needed as a mom.

She learned other things
in her life in between

like blogging and writing
and painting with watercolor.

Then the mom was blessed again
with an even greater gift.

The mom became a grandma
to two beautiful little girls

who brought so much joy and love
and inspiration to her life.

Encouraged by hubby
and friends near and far

The mom painted characters
and wrote silly rhymes.

Then she put them together
in books dedicated to her grandie girls.

The first was pure fun,
and the second devoted to her bestie grandma friends.

And now this mom has been honored
with the opportunity to share this joy

In a book-signing event
at a sweet local shop.

Please stop by if you are anywhere near the Pittsburgh area!
I would love to share this joy with you!

  3. “Namaste, My Jodi! It’s me, Benjamin! You are so beautiful, ‘specially in this picture! You are writing your name in some of your books for other kids, that is so awesome. They are so lucky to see you and to talk to you too. I love “Klaus the Mouse” and I share it with my friends. Gem and I read my mail about when I sent you my picture with my book, I was so little! I hope you have a good time at your store tomorrow and sell lotsa books. Neckbuster hugs and a zillion kisses! Bye!”

    • Benjamin was so excited to see this lovely photo of “My Jodi”! He listened to the story with great interest and asked many questions. He was disappointed that he could not come to “your store” tomorrow “cause Mars is too far away, right Gem?” We will be there in spirit, cheering you on! Good Luck! Thank-you! P.S. He was also delighted to see his photo at the bottom of this post. I have it on a thumbnail, so that we can revisit it easily…and we often do!
