Monday WRites 223


[my 2nd week of Advent table centerpiece]

My November 2019 perks of joy came in celebration at 2 events. Firstly; reading of 'Anansi An Unusual Experience' published by authourhouse this year, at the library near me. I am ever grateful to the library staff for making this happen.

What a fun morning, the Standard 4 Ascension Anglican Primary class was appreciative warm and outgoing. They were ready to participate in discussion after the story and happy to answer questions about the story and to ask me questions on my writing. One child received a surprise gift copy of the book, having sat on a seat that was tagged. A copy was also given to the teacher so the whole class could have access to a copy.

Secondly my daughter's birthday, we did a late lunch at a restaurant of her choice, she is first of my two children and she is forty-eight this year.

And with that we were thrown into The Season of Advent again to wait in hope of God's love realized. Advent is my favourite season, after all it takes me to CHRISTMAS.
