LET’S CELEBRATE MOMS… they’re special…they make magic happen, perform Herculean tasks amd blossom into the heroines that stories are written about. Both Spare Change and Cracks in the Sidewalk are stories of women who understood the meaning of being a mom…do you?

Whether you’re a mom or someone who wants to celebrate a special mom,  leave a comment here and give me your five-word description of a mom and you’ll be entered into the Mom’s Day Book Giveaway. There will be two categories of entries,,,MOST HEARTFELT DESCRIPTION and FUNNIEST DESCRIPTION (Most of what I write is in that quirky Southern voice so you just knew I couldn’t bypass the aspect of humor)

First Place Winners in each category will receive an autographed copy of both Spare Change and Cracks in the Sidewalk, Second Place Winners will receive an autographed copy of their choice of these two books and Third place runners-up will receive a Nook or Kindle copy of either book.

    For some reason, “ATM” skewed to the left in my post. I suppose because we prefer privacy for our financial transactions!

    A safe place to land.

    This past year has been very difficult for me, diagnosed with a chronic illness, had to give up my home and job. My mother opened her home and heart to me. Without her I would have been lost. If you look in the dictionary under Mother…I am sure her picture will be there.
