Amazon Woman

Have you ever had a goal or dream in life that you never had the guts to pursue? Maybe that thing you always wanted to try but never got around to doing?

Personally, there are things I wish I would have gone for but never did. Like what, you ask?

I would love to be on the radio! But unfortunately, I didn't take advantage of the radio station our high school produced. Or do a comedy show. I love to make people laugh but I never had the guts to try for a comedy troupe or stand-up shows. Or even just dye my hair blonde (too much commitment?).

I find I think I am too old or too scared or too darn busy. "Who does that!" I say.

That's maybe why admire my mom so much! She has been talking about writing a book for years. Yesterday, she did it!

And it is on

A real bookstore.

Since just yesterday.

(But she has been writing it for a long time, not just yesterday, in case you were confused.)

I'm so proud of her for doing something she's been wanting to do for a long time. Even though she is "too old" or not a "professional writer" or even an English major. And after all of her hard work she put it out there for everyone to read.

I can't wait to read MY MOM's book! I really enjoyed an early version and have high expectations.

If you are interested in checking it out, you can find it on here:
