A Better World
Since my last post was about a rat, I know you are wondering, “How can her world get better than that?”
Well, my world did improve a bit when the mailman arrived this afternoon. He carried with him my advance copy of Cup of Comfort for a Better World, due in bookstores March 25th. My story, “Angels Afoot,” is in this volume and I hope you will have the opportunity to take a look when it hits the shelves.
“Angels Afoot” is the story of a good deed performed by my Mama and Daddy. The irony is that when they worked their angel magic they did so in anonymity, preferring to take no credit. Now I’ve gone and had the details published for all to see–so much for keeping things quiet and humble. The truth is, my pride in them won out over my ability to keep my mouth shut. Also, my sister didn’t nickname me Mouth Almighty for nothing.
Cup of Comfort for a Better World shares stories of “paying it forward” which is a good sentiment to embrace in these crazy times. I am proud to have this story included in the book, and believe that somewhere in heaven my parents are finding more ways to sprinkle their angel magic.
God bless –
