Wednesday Quickie

With everything going on with my friend (update follows), I forgot to mention that I'm participating in the Smashwords Read an eBook Week. The e-book version of The Christmas Village can be downloaded to Kindle, Nook, Ipad, PC and all e-thingys for $1.50 (half-price) all week. I'd love it if you'd share that information with your friends. The link to my book is here: The Christmas Village on Smashwords.  A whole buncha reviews of the book can be found HERE.

My friend Jenise's surgery (see previous post) was postponed to the weekend. She needs operations on both Friday and Saturday. There is talk of inserting metal plates or rods, they have to fix her punctured lung, and there is some damage to her vertebrae. I'm afraid it will be a long haul.

Jenise is a person who always steps in to help when help is needed. Now it will be our turn to take care of her while she heals. We'll set up a schedule for delivery meals to her. Someone has offered to pay for the dog's MRI. The husband of one of our students is the head anesthesiologist and he's going to check on her and if possible, be the one to handle her case. I'm going to organize benefit yoga classes, and we'll see what other ideas we come up with. If you've ever doubted that people will help if something bad happens to you - DON'T. I guarantee you, people will help.

Thanks so much for your kind words and support after yesterday's post. xoxo

  6. She's so lucky to have so many wonderful people around her! Best of wishes to her in her recovery and of course her dog :)
