I count myself lucky to have really amazing friends. People who are there for me no matter what. It’s one of the greatest blessings of my life. I say this because I realized after spending Wednesday night with Rosemary and Shannon, and lunch today with Ronda, that I have some really amazing people in my life. I’ve known Ronda since I was two years old. How crazy is that? There are my college friends like Rikki and Alicia. We used to get together all the time, but now it’s only once or twice a year. Still, we pick up right where we left off.
And I don’t about you but I have friends all over the place. Some of my dearest buds, Scott, Rob and Rob, I only see twice a year at press tour. We keep in touch throughout the months thru email and phone, but when we’re together I’m just amazed by the fun we have… and the um, trouble we get into. :-) You guys know what I’m talking about!
There are newer friends, some that I just met at RWA, who I just had an instant connection with and I can’t wait to get to know them.
I have friends, who when we are in the bookstore, thank you Britta, will say “LOOK IT’S THE FAMOUS CANDY HAVENS, HAVE YOU READ HER NEW BOOK? I HAVE TO GET HER AUTOGRAPH.” Yes it’s horrifying, and absolutely wonderful at the same time to have friends like that. There have been days when Britta, Shannon and Rosemary have had to pick me up off the floor and help me get through the day. I get teary just thinking of those times, and I’m glad when there time came I was there for them.
And most of my friends, and family read this blog. You know I love you. :-) And that I’m so incredibly grateful for your support.
So today, I want to hear about your friends. Tell me a story about your best friend, but keep it clean. :-) My kids read this thing. And so do their friends. :-)
AND MEGA THANKS to all of you who have been requesting Charmed & Ready at your local bookstores. I’m so, so grateful to you. :-) Thank you for being my friend.
