I’m celebrating sharing the book, Sophie Skates, in connection with the Winter Olympics. I love watching the gracefulness of skaters.Sophie Skates


I celebrated (and am still celebrating) my college son who sent me a delightful picture text. My smile ignited!

Valentine's present reciprocated a thank you text.

BelieveI’m jumping for joy: the Powerpoint is ready for my presentation next week. I have been working on this idea of a book (thanks to my dear BONS group) for Noticing Craft in the Books You Love. I have written a draft and another and yet another. And then it has sat, away. This time, I didn’t reread anything I had written. I began with a blank page for an outline. The explanation seemed clearer. In fact, the points were there all along; I just needed time to reflect, to believe, to try again.

BONS, thank you! We finally were able to meet – no snow, no rain, no schedules.  Wait – yes, there has been but we overcame! (Missed you, Tam.) My email title was “Desperate to Meet”. We listened, shared, celebrated. And we laughed!!! My dear friend, Tammy, is the best story-teller. The snowsuit story definitely is one I will remember – and needs to be written. You rival Robert Munch on that one, my dear friend.

The best smiles ever! BONdS forever we’ll be! (Tammy and Ruth)

    Terrific to see every bit of this, Mary Helen. The Olympics have been delightful, haven’t they? Your BONS group makes me envious-and so proud of you for the writing of your book. I know it’ll be wonderful! Love that thank you pic too!

    That thank you text is the best and he looks quite handsome in that new shirt. Can’t wait for you to do more with your book idea. So glad your BONS group was able to get together. It is fun to be supported by friends. Love seeing you here on Saturdays!

    I missed the BONS group’s hugs and laughter. Glad you met. We celebrated Lucas’ 9th birthday, finally, and I got to sell Girl Scout cookies with Lilly at Walgreens! Spring is coming!!!
