JLG mail

I received a surprise package from my publisher over the weekend — the official selection letter for Happy Like Soccer from the Junior Library Guild, along with a JLG lapel pin and certificate with gold seal! Gold sure does make me happy :) Thanks to the Junior Library Guild for this wonderful honor. Really excited for Happy Like Soccer to be a part of their list~

Irish Blessing

                                      May the road rise up to meet you.
                                      May the wind always be at your back.
                                      May the sun shine warm upon your face,
                                      and rains fall soft upon your fields.
                                      And until we meet again,
                                      May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
                                             —Old Irish Blessing
