Where WAS I?
by Rita Davidson
It's going to be our 2 year anniversary of our fire July 19th, 2015. A sobering reminder to July 19th in 2013 when we walked out of a burning building with just the clothes on our back.
Fast forward to today, some think we have done pretty well. Despite how much of a challenge it has been to recover everything we lost, we have had to realize we can't get back everything we had. But we are blessed all the same.
As I am nearing the completion of my book, "Immodesty, Satan's Virtue" I have had to purchase TONS of books for my research to get it done. ALL the books I quoted from I lost in our fire. It's been a HUGE undertaking to track down all the resources I used to bring you "Immodesty Satan's Virtue".
You see the life of a writer, is composed of so many other wonderful writers. When you are an author, you benefit from so many other wonderful authors who (in my case) came before us. And because I want to make this the BEST edition EVER for you, I'm working hard to find the BEST resources and the BEST editor to work with too.
But all work and no play, makes Rita a DULL girl they say. And it's so TRUE. The more I write, the more I need a break - so my brain can get a fresh start.
This is a brand new area we moved to just last November, and so we have barely found our way around. So, yesterday we took a trip south, (just 27 minutes away actually) and found the US/CANADA border !
Just across that water is the USA so I was "Waving" Hello to all my US friends! "HELLO" \o/
(Many of you might be surprised to learn 90% of my fans and friends are American- sad state for Canada I say) So, I posted this on my Facebook page and everyone went wild.
Merlita "Waves" from VA
Lydia "waving" from TX
Margaret, Chris and Sharon all "waving" from OH
and so on...
I felt SO close to you everyone. They LOVED THIS saying how they all want to MEET one day! Imagine a PARK of FAITHFUL Catholic moms and grand-moms all together? I WOULD SO love to make this happen!
My friends you are REALLY missing the community on my Facebook page. Sharing and praying for each other all day. Did you know you can have a Facebook page and don't even put ANYTHING on it, just so you can reach the Catholic pages, Like mine, that your missing?
So my friends as I continue to work on 'Immodesty, Satan's Virtue" here, I hope you are all enjoying the summer and staying MODEST in the HEAT. 🙂 I can't wait to SHARE my book with you all and maybe we WILL all get to MEET one DAY soon!? 🙂
Will it be COFFEE or TEA? 🙂
