Hubby teased me yesterday when I texted my arrival time to him. He said, “I’m sorry. I only pick up AWARD-WINNING AUTHORS at the airport.”
He followed that up with, “Oh that’s right. That’s YOU!” Such a sweetie!
Still buzzy about this award! So excited and so blessed with an incredible week of learning and meeting amazing people at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers’ Conference!
I really had a special group of gals to hang with. We were a sampling from all over the nation – okay, 3 from Texas, but still. We wrote children’s, YA, non-fiction, speculative and were both published and unpubbed!
We prayed together, worshiped together, laughed – a lot! Even ate together from time to time. Though our classes were generally different, we had such fun waving at each other across campus.
The best was having them around me at the award ceremony. Getting a hug from one of them just as I came off the stage. Such a blessing!
I doubt we will all be in one place at the same time again, but you can bet we will share online hugs and prayers throughout our careers and have a built in buddy the next time we do share a conference together!
Your turn: When did the Lord bring a complete stranger into your life that made a huge impact?
