The Season's Best Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop

. It's hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. It's been a year of miracles for me. I have four published books and contracts for five more. I never thought I'd get one published. My grandson who they said would never walk runs around my house yelling Nana Nana.

My Son a Marine surprised me and came home this past wednesday. My husband's cancer is gone. All of that is more than a person should ever hope for.

BUT the greatest miracle is the amount of family and friends I have that hoped and prayed with and for me. That is the biggest blessing of all.


"Joy?" Stamos inquired, stepping in front of her.

    "I'm sorry. I don't cry. It's just that no one has believed a word out of my mouth in a long time," she whispered.

    "Joy?" Stamos took her into his arms. Their eyes met and he could see her need. He leaned down and kissed her. Her lips were soft and sweet and he wanted more. Licking the seam of her lips, she opened for him. She seemed inexperienced somehow. At last, she opened to him and he explored her mouth with his tongue. His hands landed on her delectable rear end pulling her closer.

    Her responses seem genuine yet tentative. Then it hit him. It could be that she hadn't kissed anyone this way before. Stamos pulled away, looked into her passion filled eyes, and gazed at her red ruby lips. She looked dazed.

    "What's wrong?" she asked.

    "Nothing, honey," Stamos said, taking a step back and dropping his hands from her. "It's just not right. You work here and I can't take advantage of you."

    A look of confusion crossed her face. "I understand," she said softly. "I'd better go to bed."

    "Goodnight, Joy."

    Joy didn't look at him. She paused at the door and murmured a quick good night and left.
