Forever Friends.....

Last night my friend Ramona and I went through the final editing for a chapter entitled Forever Friends.  It was about my friend Cindy and our friendship.  She has been gone for a few years now, and the last time I got to see her was in 1977, maybe once in 79.  I seem to vaguely remember going to her house when I was home for that summer. 

None the less, I am missing her so much today.  I think of her life and the hardships she had but through it all there was always a smile in her voice, and hope in her letters.  How many of us can say that?  Or say that about other friends?  I never heard her ever get down about anything.  Even when life got hard.

I look back now and wish I could have taken so much of her hurt away.  But I didn't know how.  Her boys grew up without her, but had their loving father. Our lives were so different. 

I truly hope with Friends.....Lessons of Life I can help people understand, "It doesn't matter where you have come from only where you are going.".  I also think one of my most favorite lines in the book is in this chapter. 

The situation reminded me of my favorite Roadrunner cartoon where they Coyote finally catches the Roadrunner and holds up a sign saying, "Now that I have them what do I do with them?"

You will have to read the book to understand that line in the book!!!  
Is it prideful to say I am loving my book?!  So far there are  sixty six pages in my book with six chapters completely finished.  WOO HOO!!!  We are going to work on another two chapters today....maybe three.  I am shooting for the end of Sept to be completely finished and ready to publish.  Think I can do it?

Thanks for all your support!!!!  I could never have done it without you!!!
