The Thrill of it All Blogfest
Today I've written a little piece for a blogfest that is near and dear to me. The Thrill of it All Blogfest is sponsored by my daughter, Heather M. Gardner, and another author, Tara Tyler, who have been newly published. Contestants were asked to describe their biggest thrill, real or imaginary. Read on.....
I could say that meeting Bishop Sheen, a popular religious television star and author at the time, and shaking his hand when I was a child was a big thrill.
Meeting Robert Kennedy and shaking his hand while he was campaigning for his brother at my college was a thrill, but it really wasn’t a big deal.
Getting race car driver Mario Andretti’s autograph and having coffee with Kenny Rogers before he become so famous was pretty exciting.
Having my picture in the local paper several times and my poetry and short articles published in the newsletter while I worked for the public library was pretty neat.
But, after 66 odd years of life, already having giving birth to two boys(as wonderful as they may be), knowing that for 5 generations in my husband’s family there hadn’t been a girl child born, I’d have to say, waking up from anesthesia and hearing the nurse tell me “You’ve had a little girl, Mrs. Skeels,” was, and still is, the biggest thrill of my life. I love you, Heather.
