Like the majority of authors, I am grateful when I receive an honest review from a reader—good or bad. Naturally, I hope readers enjoy the story and give good reviews, but more importantly, I’m glad they take their valuable time to read something I’ve written.
One of my readers went way beyond just reading my first book, If Tigers Were Angels, and she didn’t even give a written review. What this seventy-years-young reader did touched my heart in a very special way.
It started when a young woman sent my book to her aunt in Arizona. Her aunt was so moved by the story that she handcrafted two butterflies from stone and sent them to me—very special gifts! I have both butterflies on display in my office and look at them each day before I start writing. The joy they bring is beyond all words.
This beautiful lady is now a Tiger soaring the heavens, but her special gifts to me serve as a daily reminder of the kindness she sent my way. She blessed me by reading my story and lifted my spirits when she sent two special carvings to show her appreciation. What more could an author ask for?!?
Take time to notice the little things in your life and you may start looking at things differently—just as I do.
May All Your Tigers Be Angels!
