Dreams DO Come True


The good news came in last night. I went to a high school football game to watch my sister perform in the marching band colorguard. It was late when Jacob and I got back home. I was just going to skim over my email to make sure GCC's meeting in Mobile hadn't been canceled and I saw a message from Wendi Felter. I didn't recognize the name. The subject was Your Book. I opened it up and skimmed over it. I saw the words Red Rose Publishing and got excited, but the note was so short on first glance I knew it was a rejection.

Then I saw the word contract.......

I stared for a moment, felt a little bump-ditty-bump in my belly which I'm pretty sure was my heart. When I got my breath back I screamed for Jacob. I let him read it for himself. We had a brief party...as close to party as you can get in a cramped office space then sat down to read the contract breaking off of course for little squeals of excitment or knowing smiles.

I couldn't sleep and laid in bed smiling at the ceiling until 2 a.m. I got up just before 7 this morning to read the email again...just to make sure it wasn't another dream...

Thursday I saw three rainbows, one on its own and two side-by-side. I hadn't seen a rainbow in ages. My mother told me she saw one yesterday. There are signs EVERYWHERE!!!

Dreams do come true for those who dare to pursue them! I don't have words to describe how incredible it is to finally be able to say that with absolute certainty!
