Thanks for the well wishes, Sue. Diving into a project of this sort with the desire of making money would be the proverbial pipe dream on my part.  I think we should all try and leave something of our better selves behind for those who care now, or might care in the future. :)

John, I couldn't agree more. That's why I ended up (self) publishing my book about the years that my husband and I were missionaries in Africa. And why he also self-published his children's Christmas book and two volumes of meditations (he was a pastor).

I thought I would give an update on the progress on my children’s book project. The clerical part of this project takes a lot of time and effort for someone who is not a trained secretary, and I am definitely not secretary material. This week I am mailing out episode #2 in the series. I included a clean copy of episode #1 in the envelopes along with episode #2 so the recipients can share with a friend or loved one. The 2 half fold cards in the envelope max out a forever postage stamp, but just make it. My data base is a little under 50 names and I need to bring it down to 35-40 so that I can better handle the time involved. Not everyone will want to be bothered with receiving the cards, and that is OK.  I’ve made some rubber character stamps that I use to enhance to cards interior along with the story line. It is work, but I am getting a lot of enjoyment, so that is my reward. :)
