A few weeks ago, I got a nice email from a lady in regards to a recent column. I thanked her for her kind note and for taking the time to write to me.
Soon I received another note from her.
“I recently sent you a a brief email thanking you for a particularly good article, and you graciously replied, which made my day!
I was inspired to purchase War Bonds for my 89-year-old mother for Mother’s Day.”
She then asked if it was possible for me to sign the copy for her mom. When I found out the writer lived near the grocery store where I do my weekly shopping, I offered to meet her there and sign the book.
She showed up with a lilac bouquet– my favorite flower.
And that my friends, is how you turn grocery shopping from a chore to a delight.
Never forget, readers make a writer’s world go ’round!
