Preschool Blessings

"A blessing isn't a blessing until it is shared with someone else."

Last week I had the opportunity to read Bubble Wrap Girl to some of the preschool classes at our church and it was the highlight of my week.  I love preschoolers and it is such a joy to see their delight in this story and hear them pick up on the book's main message- that they are strong and can do hard things, even when they have/get a bump or bruise along the way.

In this way, Bubble Wrap Girl has been such a blessing.  Yes, I have books to sell, and yes, getting the word out there about the book is a lot of work.  But whenever I get the opportunity to share it with others, I have a lot of fun and am reminded why I did this in the first place.

It makes my day to hear someone say, "I love your book!" or "My son asks me to read Bubble Wrap Girl every night!"  And I am humbled by their kind words.  Yet the best thing by far is getting to share this book with others and seeing their smiles as I do, and somehow in these moments, the book becomes less about me and more about them.

It's a hard thing to describe, but it is a feeling I treasure.  So for anyone who is reading, I want to say thank you-- thank you for letting me share Bubble Wrap Girl, thank you for sharing it with your kids, and thank you for buying my book.  I am grateful and appreciate your support.
