Taking a Break

Hey guys, sorry I’m running a little late with this weeks blog. The long holiday weekend got me sort of behind, but a girls just got to work a little fishing into her schedule. And, by the way I caught one more fish than my husband on a recent afternoon of fishing. First time that’s ever happened, and probably the last. He is a very good fisherman.


Well summer break officially starts for my granddaughter Emma next week on June 3rd. Taking a break from school is a very exciting time, we can all remember back to the days when we lived for that last day of school. No more homework, or testing. Just simple days filled with wading the creek, catching lightning bugs, staying up late, and of course working in the garden and helping Mama can vegetables. Life can’t be all fun and games.


Things do change with the times though don’t they? I spent summers doing a whole lot of nothing, but when I look at the calendar and see all that Emma has going on these next couple of months it sort of makes my head spin. Church camp, Volleyball camp, Basketball camp, a week long trip to the beach, and what’s left of the summer she’ll be hanging out with me. Sounds like I’m going to be running a summer taxi service.


We’re going to spend a few days down at Goose Creek on the Intercoastal Waterway, go camping at Homeplace in Mount Airy, and take day trips to Carowinds and The Biltmore House. Weekend festivals, selling copies of Guardian Spirit, The Color of My Heart, and The Manger Mouse will keep us busy too. And, of course we’ll be hanging out at New River fishing every chance we get.


With all this being said you can see why I’ll be taking a little break from writing my weekly blog. I will scribble one in every chance I get but don’t be alarmed if you don’t see me around much this summer. My only granddaughter is growing up way too fast and I want to be with her making memories all I can while she still thinks I’m sort of cool.


Please check out my website for upcoming book signing events: This Saturday I’ll be in Rural Hall for their 40th Anniversary Celebration from 9am to 4pm. If you need a good book to read for the summer come on out and I’ll be glad to personalize a copy for you. Below find a few reviews for The Color of My Heart, copied and pasted straight from Amazon. These might convince you that people really do like my writing.


Have a great summer.

May be the best book I have ever read., August 6, 2013

This review is from: The Color of My Heart (Paperback)

The Color of My Heart is a wonderful book. I felt as if I was on the slave ship "The Wanderer" as it made its way across the seas from Africa. I could hardly put this book down. I became so wrapped up in the lives of Lucia Mae Hunt and the generations that followed, I was disappointed when I finished the book. It is a book that everyone should read. If everyone read it, there would be no racial prejudice in the world.

Fantastic read!, April 23, 2014




This review is from: The Color of My Heart (Kindle Edition)

This was one of the best books I have read in a while. I hardly could put it down. There were lessons of seeing people as they truly are and forgiving others as Christ forgave us.

This review is from: The Color of My Heart (Kindle Edition)

This is a story that is very relevant for today. It's themes play out across the country, across the world. I am emotionally wrung out but elated at the goodness of God shown to and through the people in this book.
