Yesterday, my family surprised me with cupcakes, a huge greeting card, a tiara and a blue ribbon to tape to my shirt, all in celebration of my #1 placement on the New York Times bestseller list.
Irene Goodman and her husband, Alex, sent a single rose, dipped in 24 karat gold. I will treasure it forever. You see, reaching the top spot on the list has been more of a dream than an actual goal, for more years than I care to count. Irene and Alex always sent beautiful bouquets, for every milestone, and I came close a few times, but that one rose was elusive.
Now, here it is.
I’m enjoying the hoopala, no doubt about it, but I’m also getting worn out. 🙂
Time to get back to work.
