“Let our lives be full of both: Thanks and Giving.”
Today, June 8, is my beautiful sister Stephanie’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Steph!
Writing is often a solitary activity, it’s easy to forget all the “writing angels” who give us much-needed support — not just ideas and valuable suggestions, but encouragement when we falter and need a boost. So I’m devoting this “Something Wonderful” to giving thanks for the help I’ve received from Steph.
We writers are sharing, caring people. So let’s take a few moments to give a shout out to someone who’s helping making this rough road we’re on a little smoother.
For me, along with my wonderful family and friends, I always think of my fabulous sister Stephanie. Not only is she an ace editor who always gives me the benefit of her enormous skill and experience, she is a fount of enthusiasm and encouragement. When she’s excited about something I’ve written, I always hear it in her voice: I know it’s really good and get a tremendous lift! She’s always ready to help me make my words better and stronger. So, thank you, Steph — you’re the best!
And now enriched and enlivened by acknowledging the “writing angels” whose wings flutter against our pages and shower them with stardust, let’s all write on!
