Today is a day that will go down in Kraft family infamy. It’s official. My book has been released, launched, shot out to the masses.
Yeah, I think BIG.
I woke up this morning and thoughts of blog-tours, book launch parties, and a cross-country book-tour/MOPS conference danced in my head. I had to email my publisher about a couple things, and my son Samuel ran into the office.
“Mom, you need to come back to the bedroom.”
“Why?” I was engrossed in my email.
“Dad just said you had to.” Samuel said over his shoulder, running down the hallway and back towards our master bedroom.
When I walked into the room, there was my husband and my three youngest with big smiles on their faces. “Congratulations Mom!” Each one shouted.
There were flowers and a precious card that each one signed. Yeah, I cried.
A few hours later, my Dad and stepmom were at the house bearing gifts; balloons, a teddy bear, a delicious smelling vanilla candle and the most beautiful diamond cross necklace I’ve ever seen. (For those of you reading my book, you’ll understand how special this gift is when you read chapter eight!)
“We just had to stop by! This is such a big day, honey. We are so proud of you and know God is going to do great things with this book.”
From your mouth to God’s ears. I thought to myself.
Truly blessed, yep this day will forever be imprinted on my heart. And, apparently, the festivities aren’t over just yet. Someone might just be celebrating at Ruth’s Chris steak house with an extremely handsome middle-aged man.
