If you wouldn’t say it to someone when they’re present, then you probably shouldn’t say it about them when they’re absent.

A heartfelt thank you for the thank you

A heartfelt thank you for the thank you

I received my first heartfelt “thank you” for my book this afternoon from a man who said the ending almost made him cry. Which sounds about right, because the ending almost made me cry when I wrote it.

It’s nice when emotions can transcend words like that. And I have to admit his “thanks” just now made me a little teary eyed.

He’s buying a copy for a friend. And says there are a number of lessons he wants his kids to read, so he’s “putting pages around the house”.

If that’s not one of the most complimentary things I’ve ever read, I don’t know what is.
