This is the second post explaining why I love my family. Mostly, I just want you to know how wonderful they are. Today, since Emily is my second child, we’ll talk about her.
Emily has always been my easy one. It was easy to tell when she needed to eat, sleep and when something was really wrong with her when she was a baby. She was easy to soothe and she loved hearing me sing You Are My Sunshine to her. She was my sunshine.
As she grew, she never had tantrums, she was easy to please and she hardly ever needed disciplining. I know. It doesn’t seem real, but it was. She really was a good child. She continued on the same track into elementary, middle and high school. We never had to tell her to do her homework, we never had to ground her or take away any privileges. She just did what she was supposed to and didn’t do what she wasn’t supposed to do.
Emily is an unusual person. Even as a child, she seemed like an old soul. As early as 3 or 4 years old, she would say things that were wise beyond her years, things that someone 10 times her age hadn’t yet figured out in life. Sometimes, now, she’ll say something about a situation or person that makes me think. She sees things in a completely different way than most other people. When she was little, I thought she would grow up to be a philosopher. Now, I know what she wants to be when she’s done growing up, and it isn’t far from that.
Emily started college wanting to be a school teacher. Sometime in her freshman year, she became passionate about helping children in another way. She wants to be a child psychologist. She will be good at it. I’ve watched her with her niece and her younger cousins. She has an amazing way of communicating with them. I know that she is pursuing the right path.
I know that, from time to time, Emily and I have issues. Our relationship is far from perfect. I know it will get better with time, too. I do love this girl beyond words.
I just wanted to take a minute to tell you about my friend, Adam’s, new book. It’s called Interviews with Dead Celebrities and it’s currently only available as an ebook in Amazon’s Kindle store. It’s available for $2.99. Someday, you will realize what a fabulously good deal that is. Someday, he is going to be HUGE, and I don’t mean physically. Then you will wish that you had bought it for the measly $2.99 because it will probably be selling for $29.99 or $299.99 or some other ridiculous price. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle. You can get the Kindle app for your iPhone/iPod Touch, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, on your PC or Mac or even in the Cloud. All of those options are free. All you have to do is buy the book. For $2.99. Click on it below to get your copy today.
One more thing, when you do buy the book, please rate it and then, if you would be so kind, review it. Thank you very much. And Adam thanks you, too!
