To view my first review of I Have People, click here. Blog tour coming soon! (I'm visiting my grandson this week, then it's time to get back to work!)
I love the title I Have People. I've mentioned this before, but in case you missed it, I'll mention it again. While I was writing this book, I was facing an empty nest for the first time in my life--and I was feeling just a little bit sorry for myself. I missed my children. I was used to an active house, with the constant flow of children--and their friends--coming and going. And I loved it. I loved the slumber parties and the late night movie marathons, the laughter, and the activity. Suddenly, the house was quiet. Suddenly, the house stayed perfectly clean. (okay, I liked that part!) I buried myself in my writing, feeling a little like I had nothing else to do. To my surprise and delight, I was inundated with phone calls from my children, and other family members too. I didn't have time to feel lonely. It was then that I realized that even though my children had left the nest, motherhood was far from over. I realized I Have People, and I always will. That's when the name of this book was born.
I'm so thankful for the 'people' in my life. It's so comforting to know that there are people who love and care about you. When my children call, and can't reach me, they say, "Where can you possibly be, Mom?" Guess they figure I have nothing else to do but be at home anxiously awaiting their phone calls!!
Somehow, I don't mind that assumption. As a matter of fact, I kinda like it. I like that my children call when they need me and know that I'll be there for them. Guess I'm their people!
Can you imagine going through life without any people? My heroine in I Have People faces this dilemma in her life. It affects her decisions and choices. Not in a good way.
Go give your 'people' a big hug and tell them you love them--and be thankful for every minute you have with them.
