Cousins, nieces, nephews, in laws, it's been a busy month at Arrindell Arms, which is what my husband likes to call our little apartment, which this year has been host to more family members and friends than usual. That's what happens when you have a big close family and a spare room in a convenient part of the city. The visits of the last two weeks were well timed for me; I had a lull in my work schedule, which is now picking up again. The proposal sold well. The agent was diligent and full of grace. The subject was charismatic and true to herself. The words on the page were well received. And so you will find me right here over the next several months, endeavoring to write a book that justifies the publisher's faith. I'm feeling so grateful in this moment for my abundant blessings, not the least of which, indeed the most of which, is my family.
Your family is beautiful! Congratulations on your new project.ReplyDelete

I love these photos of your extended family - the young woman at the right of the very first picture just makes me smile and smile - and in all of them you and your loved ones radiate joy and connectedness. You are a lucky woman :)ReplyDelete

I needed to see your blog this morning. I just love the photo of the young girl in the first picture. Her smile says it all.... I am loved and happy!
It is wonderful to wake up to see such a beautiful smile and can almost feel like I was there with the laughter.
My family and I are scattered. We lost my brother to cancer 3 years ago this April. But I still have 3 sisters. 2 are in Cancun right now having a wonderful time.
Ohhh How could I forget to wish you a Great Big Huge Congratulations on the book! I know that it will be worthy. You just keep doing what you love and it will be alright.
Please let me know of other books that you have written. I am a book worm. I want a book in my hand at every opportunity! Congratulations once more. xxx
