Hi everyone! As you may remember, a few weeks ago PETE the Elf had a touch too much Eggnog at the Holiday Christmas Party and as he stumbled home, he lost Santa's NICE LIST.
The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.Thank you Angela and Becca! :-)
Ever since I read about it, I've been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!
I found a little part of that list peeps!
I wanted to share with you four folks who keep on giving. They give all the live long day. Every day! Every year!
Sharon Mayhew This lady is my friend, crit partner, confidant, and prayer warrior. The last year has been rough as most of you know, but she's been there for me in every way. I want to thank her for all she's done. Be positive day has lifted my spirits each time we've done it over on twitter. Sharon has read my stories and offered wonderful feedback. (Even the yuck ones) Ha. She never complains about the yuck ones either. As a matter of fact she tells me the yuck ones are good. ;-) She prays for me and I pray for her. That's just how we roll. (She sent me a gift package not long ago. Boy did it lift me.) I heart you and truly love you woman! Please go and see this lovely lady if you don't already know her. And if you do know her, go and tell her she's wonderful. Okay? Merry Christmas, Sharon. Enjoy your gift that will arrive in your inbox this week. Mwah!
Next up, Lynn Kelley. This lady has prayed for me, critiqued for me, loved me and is a most lovely human being. She too has brought me through my bad times. Always there to lend a cyber ear and a real ear. (She called me on the phone when hubby fell off the roof) She's funny and loving and would give someone the shirt off her back. This woman took four chapters of my MG novel to her crit group. (I couldn't fly out to CA. Busy yanno? The kids??) *wink* (When you gonna send me something to crit for ya?) Lynn loves me even when I'm unlovable. Bless her heart! (She sent me a gift package too.) Dang! I said I need to do the same for her. So Lynn, you will receive a gift from moi this week in your inbox. Please know I love you. You and Sharon are my besties. Mwah! (Sugar pops woman)
Next up, my mentor and pal,
Susanna Leonard Hill. (Longish name to type, uh-huh.)
She's helped me in so many ways. This woman has encouraged me, read my stories and offered valuable feedback, listened to my junk, looked at my horse pics, (she sent me a few, I sent her a ton) and chose me for a certain thing and I got to be in on this first and I learned so much doing it and she just doesn't know what all she's done because she's just like that. *gasp* (run on sentence here) You have won a prize! Not really. But you will be getting something in your inbox this week from me. Love you encourager woman!
One more mention. T. (Theresa Milstein)
She critiqued me without worry about tit for tat (I owe you. When you gonna send it??)and called me when hubby fell off the roof. She urged me on with my writing and listened to my worries. So T, look for something in your inbox this week from me. I'm heartin' you! :-)
Thanks to these ladies for keeping my head above water. I needed that this year. Please go visit them and tell them they're BODACIOUSLY AWESOME!
Merry Christmas ladies and to T a late Happy Hanukkah wish.
I have a picture book review on Friday, then I'll be taking off for a couple of weeks.
Joyeux Noel peeps. (Ivy fancies herself a french woman now.) So that's for her.
