“Oh, hush, you!” censored Mrs. Salvatore with a gleam in her eyes. “You embarrass her. Let her alone with private things.” All the women laughed. Annie, felt her cheeks warming, and lightly bit the corner of her lower lip, feeling quite like a young chick in a room full of seasoned hens. It was the first time in a long time she felt like a child again. Her mother cupped her hands around Annie’s face and kissed her forehead with such determination that it made a smacking noise. Annie was happy.
Excerpt from Chapter 11
The Heart of Annie…The Strength of God
Good day, friends,
I’d first like to welcome my new follower to Leisure Lane. I hope they enjoy their time spent here.
Well, I’ve finished Chapter 11, and I’m now working on the next chapter. I’ve decided to post excerpts as I do the chapters to help motivate me into working steadfastly in completing the book. And it gives you something to look forward to. It’s such a joy to work on, and I would love to spend every day, most of the day on it, but I go back to work tomorrow. Hopefully, I’ll get some writing in before work.
Thank you for visiting today. May your hearts be filled with joy and creative ventures, whatever they may be, and…
Until next time, may happy days abound!
