Saturday was my book signing here locally. As I was driving to the store, my stomach was in knots. Now I wasn't a bit nervous at the book signing at Emerald City, but here where everyone knows me- I was getting downright petrified!
Once I arrived, was set up, and my best friend, first reader, and biggest fan showed up with extras in tow, the nerves went away and I had a great time talking with everyone who came to buy my book and congratulate me.
It's at something like this that you find out who you've met along the way that you've impacted enough they would come and support you. I wasn't the least bit surprised by the people who turned out. All have been supportive of my 4-H involvement AND have gotten to know me as a friend. I feel blessed to have that many friends and not just acquaintances in my life.
Thank you everyone who has supported me as a writer and a friend!
