Well guys, I did it again!!! My poem that I wrote for my husband, “As I Watch You Sleep”, has been selected to be published in Poetry Digest’s December 5th issue. I am honored once again to share the spotlight with so many talented poets. I’m so appreciative of the recognition that I’m receiving and the ability to show my children that no dream is too small and your hearts desire can be achieved with hard work. This is a great achievement for me and I thank GOD for blessing me with such a special gift. It’s really hard trying to get your name out there as a notable writer and I’m grateful for this blog and my followers. Here’s snippets from the letter I received….wanted to share it with you all~
