It's Friday again, and time for the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop, a brilliant idea conceived by Viklit . Every Friday we post about the things that have happened that are worth celebrating, however small. It's fun, free, and makes you think - and there are some wonderful bloggers who participate.
Today I'm celebrating a bouquet I received completely without warning:
I had stopped my local mailman to ask about a package that had arrived in bad shape. (In fact, it was in such bad shape I could not tell that it had been sent through another service).
The mailman was new to the route, and I had not seen or spoken to him before, since I'm usually working when he comes by.
I said I was.
He said, "One of my coworkers just read one of your books. It takes place in the South during the Civil War. I don't remember the title, but she really liked it!"
I was caught off-guard and stammered something suitable.
She had read The Safeguard and liked it enough to comment on it. That is why I write: to entertain people and tell my stories. And sometimes you get a bouquet.
What are you celebrating?
