For the past few weeks, I have been part of a team working with my home office on a major project - and today was the last day of the rollout conference calls I've been leading with some of the regions in my company. It was a wonderful experience - and it's about improving something I really believe in - so it came quite naturally. It reminded me of how much I love speaking to groups and leading discussions.
I really need to find a way to get more of that in my life.
"Spaghetti Kisses," by J.R. Greenwell
Oh my gosh, how I adored this freaking story, even as it broke my heart. I'm starting to realize that J.R. Greenwell has a real gift for the reveal, and for making the reader feel that he is having one type of story, but then delivering another instead.
Here we have a little girl, Danielle, who lives life brightly, with a joie de vivre that was contagious from the first step. She is a girl who is okay with the other kids leaving her somewhat behind - and has a crush on one in particular - and she has a brilliant imagination and a mother who indulges her.
And everything is about to change.
It's a brilliant little story, and I adored it. If you haven't picked up a copy of Who the Hell is Rachel Wells? yet, then allow me to tell you that you should.
