Let’s Do Some Uplifting

Hey, lovely readers: Some week, eh? I don’t know exactly what to say at this moment in time. Although I’m ready to get down to sharing some of our humorous sets, shaking off the demons of our world news for a few minutes seems frivolous and shallow.

And sad.

Let’s take a moment to pray for our young warriors killed in Afghanistan who now reside in Heaven. I favor The Lord’s Prayer, but you do you. I’m sure God has given these boys shelter, comfort, and everlasting love.

But that’s just me. No doubt our global situation affects us all, but what better escape from the cruelty of mortal men than to read a feel-good story or three?

So, let’s do some uplifting.

Humor’s always been my favorite outlet to set the fiends free, if only in our minds, but my husband Joe was a great influencer. Let’s see if I can conjure him up…

First, we’re offering our Cute But Crazy Triple Set: Brighten your day without the heat: #READ #Romance blended with #Comedy! 3 Boxsets loaded with #Love & Laughs. #Amazon https://bit.ly/CBCseries

On a more somber side, I became a widow about two years ago and the first story I wrote earned a Gold Medal award in two contests – I must’ve been numb, OR perhaps the golden spirit of my loving hub hovered over me, so I didn’t go nuts, and enabled me to persevere. But the story has a big taste of humor, and even though the topic is serious, I have some darn fine fun to share in this tale!
