To my dearest niece, Nicole...

congrats022.gif making the Dean's List your Freshman year! Mere words cannot describe my pride! You're a super star! :))


Inspiration is such a fragile thing...just a fragile

thing. Just a breeze, touching the green foliage

of a city park. Just a whisper from the soul of'a

friend. Just a line of verse, clipped from some

forgotten magazine...or a paragraph standing

out from among the matter-of-fact chapters

of a learned book.

Inspiration...who can say where it is born, and

why it leaves? Who can tell of its reasons for

being...or for not being?

Only this...I think that inspiration comes from

the Heart of Heaven to give the lift of wings, and

the breath of divine music to those of us who are

Petra, Nicole is your niece?

Congratulations Nicole! :)

Yes, she is, K. But we have a very special relationship. While my sister/her mother was extremely ill she asked me to help raise Nicole if anything happened to her. When she passed, I became Nicole's surrogate mother when she was 7. She's been and is the greatest joy in my life!

How beautiful! Thank you very much, Aunt P! I thought the first semester was a fluke. LOL Must be doing something right. :)

I had to relax yesterday. Went out with Dana, then Analisse and Colleen back to back after my last day of school.

Love you! <333333333

I didn't know that about your sister before or if I did, I don't remember that. Way to go Nicole, you have many admirers that are so proud of you and your accomplishments!

Hi, Janeen! It's been awhile since you've heard my interview with Mark Penstone at Bookrix in which I mentioned my surrogate motherhood to Nikki.

Everyone is extremely proud; including herself, the most important of all, I should think! Thank you, Janeen! :))

Thanks for the reminder, I'll head back over and listen.
