Goodbye, Aunt Janet

Rest in peace, Aunt Janet Webb. You were my first contact with the Webb family that I never knew. I'm so glad I had the chance to talk to you before you were gone. You welcomed me into the family with open arms and no hesitation. You reassured me when I cried that it was all okay. And you told me some wonderful stories about my father and my grandmother.

Thank you.

I'm glad, too, for the time you had, and I'm sorry that it was over so soon. My sincere condolences.

Thank you.

I will always remember that she never asked for proof, she just accepted me, and that gave me the courage to contact more of the family.

Thanks, Diane. Yes, I'm sooooo glad I got in touch with her when I did. BTW, can you send me a link to the last tree update you had for me? Did it have Janet's kids listed? Someone on the Webb board was asking me about them.

Sorry for your loss, Susan. Though you knew her for only a short time, it was so pivotal in enabling you to contact/find more relatives.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
