Even with this solid sheeting of rain we’ve been experiencing these last few days, I’ve got a big ‘ole smile on my face! 🙂

Not only have I reached a milestone which I’m very proud of but I received confirmation that another one of my pieces will publish in June. When it’s official, I will repost here. At the end of this month, I’ve been invited to do a reading. Egads so much to be thankful for today!!

Thank you to all the followers for your continued support, your kind and thoughtful comments and participation with me here in the WordPress Community! You’ve welcomed me from the very start, and for that I am grateful.

Oh, and the grass is having a good day too.

A big thank you to Eugenia of BrewNCafe for the initial prompt. If it were not for her, this piece might not have been created! I’m grateful for these exercises in creativity. ❤
