Out of the blue, two sweet Christmas ornaments arrived in the mail. One is from our son’s friend, Jenny, thanking us for taking her to dinner while we were in New York.
The other is from my sweet Kentucky friend, Alecia Marcum.
Alecia is a sweetheart. She’s not only a wonderful librarian, she also keeps a birthday book of authors’ birthdays. I have been so blessed by our friendship that I’ve named a character in The Friendship Doll (May 2011) after her! Well, the last name anyway. So if and when you read the book, you will know where little Willie Mae Marcum got her name.
