Happy Easter. Happy – Nuss!

One of Nicholas’s ‘nick-names’ is Nuss, as in Nick-a-nuss, which we sometimes extrapolate to Glad-nuss or Sad-nuss or Tired-nuss.  You get the idea!  Well this morning we have Happy-Nuss.  Two reasons, he loves Jesus and he loves Easter and he tells us that he love’s Jesus’ sacrifice.  He died and He lives again.  What a sweet testimony of our Savior.

In addition to celebrating Easter, today, and with lots of support and assistance from Mom and Dad, Nick got to go into our new therapy pool, otherwise known as a hot tub.  He was so excited and happy.  His sprained ankle as well as the previously broken ankle are healed enough for him to be able to crawl into the tub.

Once he was settled, the first thing he asked was if he could talk to different family members.  If it was me asking, you might think that I wanted to brag a bit about having this wonderful experience of being in a new hot tub.  But no, Nick was feeling so excited with his experience, that his first thought was to share his joy with others that he loves. He wanted to have others join with him and be with him. What a pure example of Christ-like love.

I have two thoughts about this.  One, when I am experiencing joyful moments, will I remind my self to think of others and have the desire to share my joy with them.  Two, when others are sharing stories of their wonderful experiences with me, will I move past my thoughts that they are bragging, and remove my jealousy and work to share emotionally in the experience of their joy.

I hope that everyone has a joyful Easter.  I know the Savior Lives!

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
