For our elected in Washington-greater listening skills
For those who are missing loved ones-a kindling of hope.
For the first-responders-greater respect for what you do.
For families-bridges mended.
For young people dismayed with the world-a spark of passion to make it right.
For teachers-the support of school boards and communities.
For struggling parents and students-knowledge that there is no shame in asking for help.

keep it all the year."

WEDNESDAY; Book Obsessed Chicks Blog

Today the celebration blog hop takes me to Book Obsessed Chicks. I first met some of these ladies in 2011 at Lora Leigh's RAW (Reader Appreciation Weekend)  A fun and warm group of ladies with an ornery streak (most of them) that is a delight and a love for books!

Dedicated to their craft and Book club, when one has a review, you hold your breath, because you know they aren't going to hold back their thoughts. They will be kind, but when you read a lot, you learn to sift the chaff from the wheat. That's why I am so very humbled by the review of FALLEN ANGEL today on the BOOK OBSESSED BLOG

Check it out and some pics of RAW 2011 & 2012!!  Can't wait for RAW 2013!!

OH! Be sure to leave a comment and tell me what your favorite time-travel movie or book is!? Did anyone else see Somewhere in Time? Anyone a Quantum Leap fan? Or Dr Who??

Here are some great pics from 2 years of RAW!!
