Hello, April!

Happy Monday, friends! No foolin’ on this Monday-I wish all of you a month filled with peace, love, joy, and good health. These are tricky days and times. But simply, you are loved. You’re angry? You’re loved. You’re sad? You’re loved. You feel alone? You’re loved. You feel unlovable? You’re loved. You’re desperate? You’re loved. You’re already loved? You’re loved. You’re disliked? You’re loved. Love doesn’t fix things; but love and kindness sure make the tough times easier to handle. Friends, I believe in you!

My apologies about the “sound” (me on my treadmill). Just like Finley, YOU CAN DO IT!

It’s been a joy to visit classrooms and read my book! This week I will be visiting a total of 16 classrooms (4 at a time in 4 sessions). I might be a little late in responding and reading your awesome writing. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Success! You're on the list.

Have faith 💛

    1. Aw,too bad! It’s Finley jumping on the futon. She was so cute. 💛 Pam, today’s reading was so amazing. And kuddos to Finley. We had 4 classes in two different sessions. The staff were amazing and the kids…well, I wanted to stay! They all gave Finley a pet on the back and each received a sticker. The Principal is going to purchase several copies and would like for me to make this a yearly tradition since 3rd grade studies Missouri history! All the kids were so excited that they already had knowledge of Lewis and Clark and the Pony Express! These 3rd graders even wrote a song about it. Kids are just the bees knees. 🥰

    1. Michele, thank you for the kind words. It went very well! I had 4 classes in one session and 4 in another. I’ll do the same at a different school on Friday. The kids were amazing listeners, collaborators, and the best, kind small humans! Your support is encouraging. Keep making impacts as you do as well. ❤️

    1. I’m soaking it in, Mark. I appreciate your kindness and support! (I love the word “fruitful”!) when I was looking for pics of librarians for my newsletter I chose the man holding all the books to represent you! Happy April, my friend!

  3. Thanks for finding me so that I could find you! This post warmed my heart! ❤ We are indeed loved by an amazing God!
    Reading to kids is so much fun, what book did you write? That is awesome! Writing is a passion of mine too.

    1. Hi there! I’m so glad to know you and that you found me! I wrote a non-fiction kids book about my home state of Missouri. It’s my little “twist” on The Magic School Bus! Rather than a bus, it’s an R.V. No lizard, just my pup, Finley River. And geography and social studies my goal! I self-published and what a journey to learn it all, lol. My life is staying busy, but I try to write each morning in my journal after my morning meditation/quiet time with God. My goal is to publish on here at least once a week-sometimes a hit and miss! I’m so glad you enjoyed my post and yes, what an amazing God! Take care my new friend. And I thanked Mitch for reblogging you so we could connect!! ❤️💛 Call me Karla 🙂


      1. Hi Karla! How exciting about your book, and that you get to share it with bright, inquisitive minds! Love it! I love dogs too! 🙂

        I also self published a book with a friend. Definitely a lot of work, but also such a rewarding experience. I was able to go to schools and share some stories from it as well. It is fiction and about friendship. The main characters are a sassy barn owl, a lazy cat and a sweet Jackalope who has a sly side to him. They all become best friends and turn the life of a retired farmer upside down!

        Love journaling! I write at night. I am a night owl and seems to be when I think the best. So my posts are usually late, though I want to try and make them earlier!

        I post every day for it keeps me in the habit of writing. The day just doesn’t feel right if I don’t write something. But I do totally understand the busyness of life and posting once a week is fine! Whatever works for you. I don’t think anyone should make blogging a chore. Its meant to be enjoyable! Look forward to getting to know you better and thanking God with how he continually blesses me through blogging, with meeting new people.
        Take Care Karla and have a great day!!🥰

      2. Aw, Joy, I’m so proud of you!! I’d love your book! What an awesome story! It seems we have much in common, except I’m no night owl 🦉! Lol I’m a morning bird 🐦. I’m looking forward to knowing you better as well. God is so good~I don’t know where I’d be without him! I want to apologize now that I’m “hit and miss” on reasing due to my schedule. Just this morning I read to eight new classes and have made it home to begin catching up on things! But it’s all a blessing so I will not complain. I hope your Friday is blessed as well! Stay safe! ❤️💛♥️🤗

      3. Thank you! ❤ I fell in love with my characters. Its called The Odessa Chronicles. Odessa is the name of the Barn Owl. Its on Amazon if you are interested. A friend painted the cover which I was thrilled about! I am not the least bit artistic!
        We do seem to have a lot in common which is awesome! Though here I am messaging you back when you are probably snoozing by now. LOL!
        Sleep well! Happy weekend! 🙂

      4. You’re welcome ☺️ Yes! I’ll go to Amazon! I love the name, Odessa. What a neat story! A former student is my illustrator! I can NOT draw, but do love to doodle. I have a bit of a stomach bug that began yesterday afternoon so I haven’t read much today. I’m hopeful it will go away soon! You have a blessed weekend! ❤️
