I want to give a big, "Thank You" to all who have written. To be more specific; thanks to Speed, Thom, LS, RG, DZ, Aussie, WI, JS, PO, Mark, Mack, Dennis, Ian, Les, Derek, Garth, AH, Kevin, Rod, and TJ; just to name a few. I appreciate your stories, the little part of your life you might have shared, and your validation of sections of the story. When you mention an error, I immediately correct it.
"A Southern Warming" has surely exceeded my expectations. I have tried to share some of my wonder regarding the world around me. I have also attempted to explain my fascination with the beauty of a woman. I sincerely doubt whether my wife will ever know how amazed I am as I gaze upon her. She is truly the inspiration for much of my writing.
"A Southern Warming" will soon be coming to an end. I hope the final chapters will make for enjoyable reading. My life has recently had its moments in which I have had to scratch for time to write. I suppose that is good. I thank the good Lord for the opportunity to help in the lives of some amazing families this summer. There definitely is truth in the statement; "It is better to give than to receive."
As the Holidays approach, I wish all of you a very enjoyable season. I am toying with the idea of putting a Christmas chapter in "A Southern Warming." I'll have to wait to see whether or not Anna arrives in the states in time.
