In a word...Likemindedness!

You and your husband renewed your wedding vows on my husband's 50th Birthday. I do not believe in coincidence, just pre-destination...How spiritual was that?

The Heavens continue to work!

Happy Reading!

Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary...Marriage indeed is a good thing!

After seventeen years, I am pleased to report my husband and I have recently re-committed ourselves to this union and I must say it is less stressful than when we were on opposite sides of just about everything. The more you know, the more you grow.

I wish to also take this opportunity to introduce you to a new network we recently created, the Author Book Bag Club (ABBC). Log-on to for more details and I look forward to networking with you in the very near future.

Continue blessings, and as always...

Happy Reading!
