The last few days, since Christmas, have been especially busy. Lots of errands, visiting family and friends, some long overdue home chores (yes, I did match 62 pairs of socks found while cleaning kids’ bedrooms!), and taking care of some things for our parents.
In the midst of the running around, I have also had the strange experience of having lots of people I know read an article in the local paper about me. I still don’t really know how to respond when people talk about my books, and still feel like I am fumbling around for the right words. But I am so very touched by the outpouring of love and support. So in the end, the thing that I need to say more than anything is thank you. Thank you all for your support. Thank you for reading my book. Thank you for loving us, and especially for loving Sam. Thank you for your words about how Sam touched your lives, or if you didn’t know him personally, how you want to try to “do a Sam.”
Thank you is the best thing to say. Thank you.
