Such wonderful news this past week! The Wishing Thread made the New York Times list and the USA Today list! Talk about a dream come true! It was so much fun to share the news, especially with my mom and my husband, who have always put so much faith in me even when there was little reason to. There are still mountains to climb, but this has been a wonderful burst of happiness to put new spring in my step. Thanks to everyone who has so kindly supported my writing!
