HAPPY!HAPPY!HAPPY!

Hi All,

I thought I would just share this bit of awesome news that I received from the ‘Works for Publication’ group. They have selected one of my poems to include in the groups’ first Anthology. The piece they chose is ‘Sorrow’.
I am so honored!! Thrilled! Absolutely beside myself crazy with joy!!! Can’t wait to see the finished product.

Thanks to all you guys who take the time to read my stuff and give me encouragement!
Hugs,
Kathi
