Sister-in-Christ, indeed! I hope we meet up in person someday. If not here, up there. Praying you have many more birthdays to shine your own special light, Noela. Thanks for being you!!

    1. Can't wait to meet up with you too LAURA... Wherever that might be! I know we both love our tea and scones so that will be a must, lol! It's so nice to see you here Laura, thank you so much for coming by to join in the party! And thank you also for your very sweet words!! Can't go without thanking you also for being YOU, thanking you for your sweet friendship, and thanking you for blessing and inspiring me with your incredible writing! x

    2. Laura, I'm currently reading Love's Reckoning at Noela's recommendation, and it's wonderful! I can't lay it down. You've crafted a spellbinding story with fascinating, memorable characters. I'm so jealous! LOL! And now I consider myself a fan for life. Just sayin'. :)

    3. Marcia, You are SO gracious! I'm thrilled you've met Silas and Eden (and probably want to spank Elspeth by now, or worse). THANK YOU for taking time for my books. HUGS and THANKS to dear Noela for linking us. That means so much. I should say that I just had a little "chat" with Noela on another site and she steered me to your books so I'm treating myself and ordering one this morning. I can hardly wait to go over and pick one out - it's a little like dessert for breakfast this morning! Please stay in touch. Again, it's a joy to think of you reading - or I should say, mutually reading each other:)

    4. Laura, I'm just SO excited that Marcia is reading and loving one of my all-time favorite stories!!! Just know Marcia that I'll fight you for Silas however. LOL
      Laura, Marcia has been having trouble replying back here and has asked me to pass on the message that she is very honored, though anxious, that you want to read her book. (I say, you'll LOVE them!) And that she wouldn't spank Elspeth, but she'd strangle her! :) She says you write the most dreamy romantic scenes (totally agree) and that she loves Silas and Eden together (AGREE!). :-)

      Delete
    5. Oh, so thankful for both your and Marcia's gracious words about LR. Love that "dreamy" stuff:) And I SO agree about Elspeth! I'm so excited to find another great author to read and know I'll enjoy Marcia's books very much. First one to order is Raider's Heart. The covers are gorgeous! Thanks again to you both for being here and being so encouraging. Have a blessed week, everyone!

    WOW, your family is GORGEOUS (uh ... naturally), and that cake is TO DIE FOR!! Purple is one of my favorite colors, so both the cake and juice (grape???) are reeling me in ...

    You are a beauty, my friend, both inside and out, and a woman who doesn't seem to age, but I love you anyway ... ;) Here's to THE BEST birthday ever and may it be only the start of the best year of your life!!
