Good morning friends,
Today dawned cloudy and colder, but our weather is nothing compared to the blizzard hitting in our northeastern and southern states. Ya’ll stay warm up there, okay?
A few years ago (I’m not saying how many) I gave birth to our youngest daughter. She completed our family of three girls. Hubby and I just called and sang the Happy Birthday song to her.
In this picture, Lanissa, our birthday girl, is the one on the left. She has her arm wrapped around her sisters. She will receive a master’s degree in history this spring, we are proud of her and happy she joined our family on this day a few years ago. (More than a few, right?)
Our girls are petite—Lanissa is the tallest—she stands at 5’l”—if she stretches.
Growing up, I was the tallest girl on my mom’s side of the family, and I really look tall compared to my daughters. I’m 5’5”. My mother stood at 5’4” and I always thought she was the perfect size. She tried hard to weigh one hundred pounds. She didn’t gain weight—no matter what she ate. Believe me, I don’t have that problem. I wish I did.
Now that I think of it, many of my female heroines are 5’4”.
I have a book coming out in February, Clue into Kindness and the heroine is tall in this story—her name is Georgia. She has an unkind husband. Prism Book Group is featuring the Love Is series based on I Corinthians 13. Can you guess what mine is about? If you said, “Love is kind,” you got it right. I think mine is due on February 13. There will be fifteen in the series, and I hope you will read them all.
Until tomorrow, stay healthy. Don't forget to smile.
