Christmas is a week from today. How will you spend the next few days? Will you work forty hours with shopping, baking, cooking, and wrapping consuming your after hours? Do you have an event, meeting, or party to attend? And possibly more than one?
This week in preparation of Christmas I cleared our schedule of appointments and events so we could enjoy some family time and quiet time. Of course I have a Christmas grocery list and menu to prepare and cookies to bake and frost, but my hope is not to have them the priority or focus. Family and Jesus' birthday should be and this is my goal.
News to report:
*The final (I hope) proof book is in the mail! Woo Hoo! Special thanks to my wonderful editorial & critiquing friends and family.
*Our Christmas gift/video will be posted Friday, December 21, 2013.
* The feedback from the mini-blog posts and family photos on the "Where's Heidi?" Facebook page are such an encouragement to us. My entire family is touched by your words, prayers, and notes.
Our Tuesday blogs are titled, T.0.P.'s Tuesday and will provide you with information relating to the release of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. It might be an upcoming speaking engagement, the cover, an excerpt, or bizarre tidbits about the publishing process you may not be aware of.
Why is is called T.O.P.'s Tuesday? Great question! Heidi played volleyball for the Bishop Cunningham Jr./Sr. High School until it closed in 1992. On February 14th, 1992 the Palladium Times (an Oswego, New York newspaper) named
my sister, Heidi M. Allen athlete of the week. This was exciting and we were all proud of her but it was the name they gave her that stirred the most attention, "Tower of Power".
