Miracles happen every day!

We had a great time at the Maui Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant.  This picture is of a well-worn sign hanging in the small reception area of the restaurant.  It reminded me to look for miracles.

The first miracle was that, in a restaurant with many levels of tables, there was a ramp down to an available oceanfront table by the open windows.  The afternoon breezes were cool and the setting was beautiful.  Nick loves the movie Forrest Gump and told everyone who would listen that he loved the movie.  We got to talk to the people sitting at the tables on either side of us with that conversation opener.

All the wait-staff seemed interested in meeting Nick and talking to him while we were there.  At that restaurant, there are Stop and Go signs on the table that you can use to get the attention of the servers as they are passing by.  However, we had people stopping without us asking for it, they were drawn to Nick and were asking how everything was going and were we enjoying ourselves.

Even though Nick is 38 and clearly not a child, they were very happy to have him order off of the kids menu which was more in line with his particular culinary tastes.  During the meal, it is tradition for your server to ask you trivia questions about the movie.  Our server was surprised that Nick knew the answers to a lot of the questions.  As I said, Nick loves that movie.  We have watched it many, many times.

I know that this might sound like an advertisement for this restaurant, and I do recommend that people go there.  We love the food and the atmosphere is fun even when you are not at a tropical location.

What was interesting to me was that after seeing the sign quoting the movie, “Miracles happen every day, some people don’t think so, but they do,” I did look for miracles and I did see them.  It changed my outlook that day and shifted my mood.

We all need that reminder.  Miracles do happen every day.  Just look for them!

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.
