Oh my goodness! Dialogue through your very caring, supportive and appreciated comments.
Sara, Mari and emptying nest supria are now wrapped and ribboned into my treasure trove scheduled for that someday when my grandchildren open their inheritance-from-the-heart-chest.
I am Mom, Grandma, G.M., and Nana, depending on the child and the whim of the moment. Over the years, I have collected their trinkets-of-great-price, home made cards, photos and pieces of my writing. Mementos of my life passages are also in the box.
Four Ordinary Women just might create the need for a second chest of Grandma's Gold. Of course, the printing of the book and all that led to the moment when the publisher responded with a "Yep" to my query of "You interested?" are definitely life passage moments. This seminal event came months after his initial (and unusually gentle and informative) rejection.
And now? And now you, Gentle Readers, are contributing to what my grandchildren will eventually learn about their grandmother. They will learn that her life was enriched by some very extra-ordinary people.
