Book Reviews, Magazine Launces and A Fire Festival ... OH MY!

There are going to be fireworks in 2012!
Sometimes life jumps up and surprises you from time to time. Today is no exception. It is only 10 am and so far, FANTASTIC DAY!

It started a couple of days ago when I found this heartfelt review of my book, The Best For You. I wasn't looking for it and had no idea that she planned on doing it but there it was shouting out to me in my google alerts. I say a hearty Thank You to Cat for sharing her thoughts with all of her readers. Even more so, I am grateful for her kind words of admiration for the book. What a delight for me to find!

Then last night I responded to a friend, one of the first people I met in online adoption land, who asked me to come to the LA area to speak with her group. Angela is an amazing woman who's interest and research in adoption are a passion that she lives, and her heart is as wide as the Grand Canyon! She has a great blog and site with beautiful voices she has found. For more information please visit her at Adoption FYI. Thank you Angela for keeping me in mind and for your wonderful invitation! (Oh, she also said that I was becoming famous which will get her everywhere with me ;)

But the best part about all of this info is that I spoke to Jane Ballback again this morning, discussing the launch of her new publication for which I will be a contributor. Jane is great to talk to, has a wonderful outlook on life and just makes me want to get out there and go, go, GO! Other people feel the same way about her because there are many, many fabulous people in adoption who have been coming out of the woodwork to show an interest in her magazine and connections. I have a good feeling about this magazine and an even better feeling that I am moving forward in my goal to be a voice that people can connect with, feel my story and learn from what I have to say. I cannot recall the last time I felt so optomistic about my book, my writing and my message. Wooooo Hooooo!

The CHERRY ON TOP is this horoscope that I found in a paper I picked up this weekend. Called The Ventura County Reporter, it is a local paper that is published in Ventura, California. Now I am not a real close follower of horoscopes, but I will read them if I see them just because I am curious as to what they have to say. Well good for me for reading this one because it just coincided with what is really happening in my life right now.

It's going to be a GOOD 2012!!

Leo ~ January, 2012

I love the way they celebrate the New Year in Stonehaven, Scotland. A procession of revelers swings big flaming baskets around on the ends of long chains. I recommend that you carry out a comparable ritual as you barge into 2012, Leo. Symbolically speaking, it would set the perfect tone. The coming months should be a kind of extended fire festival for you ~ a time when you faithfully stoke the blaze in your belly, the radiance in your eyes, and the brilliance in your heart. Are you ready to bring all the heat and light you can to the next phase of your master plan? I hope so. Burn, baby, burn.
