How do I begin to express my gratitude today? I’m overwhelmed with emotion. First and foremost, I want to thank my coworker/friend/desk neighbor for her positive feedback after reading my book, Finding My Voice.
Marysol and I are co-workers separated by a partition. Every time I want to talk to her; I have to stand up and call her name. So after lunch today, I asked her how she liked my book so far. She got up and said, “I want to give you a hug.” I responded, “Ok.” We both walked around to meet each other in the middle. She hugged me tightly and repeated several times, “I love it.” I could see tears still in her eyes. That was when I felt my writing had touched the very core of her being. I walked back to my desk feeling emotional.
Before she left work, again she looked at me with the compassionate eyes. She said, “I don’t believe that I finished reading your book right away. I felt so close to you as if I was there with you during your journey.”
Thank you again, my friend, for the support! Your reaction moved me. All my hard work was worth it. ❤️
