One of those Ahh.., moments


Pat Davids, here.
I recently had one of those, Ahh...moments. You know what I mean. One of those tiny treats in life that brightens your day and makes you smile. A small blessing.
My treat came via e-mail. A woman wrote to tell me that her daughter was the cover model on my book, A Family for Thanksgiving. It was Gianna's first modeling job. I'm sure there will be many more. She's really cute, isn't she? The proud mom asked if they could get a copy autographed if they sent me one.
Well sure. Then I thought, wait a minute, I get advance copies. I'll sign them an mail them to her. She objected, wanted to pay for them.
Ha! Suck it up, honey, and take the free ones, I replied. I wasn't about to get paid for this treat. That would spoil it somehow. I asked for a list of name so I could personalize each. I wrote little notes to grandparent, aunt and uncles, and preschool teachers in the front of the books.
It was so cool. Just had to share. What was you latest Ahh.. moment?

Hey Pat!
How cool is that!!!??? VERY cool : )

My latest Ahhh....moment was prolly yesterday actually. I had the celebration for my thesis project that I've been working on for almost 2 years now. It marked the end of the first session. It was relief, but sad too. However, the comments I recieved made me feel like I was floating : D If you want to know more specifically what it is that I'm talking about(since it doesn't necessarily make sense to you! lol....), stop on by and visit me at my blog(Project Journal) or ask me more about it and I'll get back to you : ) If it's easier we can email too.....just covering all my bases! But, if you're not interested at all(I won't take offense), just lemme know that too!
Thanks and really neat post!

Thanks for sharing this, Pat - - how special! And you just never know how those books you autographed and sent for her relatives might touch someone's life! ~ So often the Lord gives me a special moment just when I need it--sometimes a sweet e-mail or card when I'm having an emotional day. Always gives me a lift!! :)
Blessings, Patti Jo
