Some unexpected family events this month resulted in my having to postpone the remaining two LOCAL AUTHOR EVENTS at the Mesa Public Libraries until sometime in 2016! Two more grandbabies arrived earlier than expected...so that is a total of three born into our family this autumn.
I'm currently in Utah trying to lend a hand during the holidays to one of these young families in their need and enjoying this special time with them. All three of our new mothers and their darling babies are progressing as well as can be expected and I'm blessed to have been able to share time with each family, despite them living in three different states in the good ol' USA!
