MY BOOK!!yes! waiting for me when I got home was a box with my books! what I felt didn't have words. I couldn't believe it. It felt completely amazing to hold my story in book form. like a parent holding their baby for the first time. I was already thrilled when a friend, actually a young woman who I used to babysit and is a ballerina!, posted a pic of herself holding my book. it was surreal. everything became so real. I was honored that someone from my past was reading it! such an indescribable feeling. one of joy and accomplishment. I want to thank everyone of you in the roles you all have played in getting to this point. HUGS!
