Happy New Year Everyone!


I want to extend some special blessings to everyone in the New Year! Some of you are already there in 2017! I hope you will all receive good health and that all your wishes will come true.

Here are my wishes for the New Year!

I wish that my good friend, Anne Gillis Benedetto, will be free of pain and that her prayers will be answered. God Bless you, dear Anne! I love you!

I wish that our world will resolve issues and make peace with one another.

I wish all peoples in the world will have a safe place to live and bring up their children.

I wish that our president will do a good job taking care of our country (USA). May God guide his hands and heart.

I wish that everyone will get along with their neighbors.

I wish that everyone will accept one another’s differences.

I wish that God will watch over all of us in 2017!

I wish that I will do the best of my ability to make a difference in children’s lives through my books with God’s help and guidance.

Let’s get along with our enemies and love one another. We are all God’s children.

Blessings and hugs to all!
