There are days when you feel proud

on 05/09/2017

Today was the second day of school for my kids – both first graders, one primary, the other one secondary school. Still a long way ahead of us, but my husband and I are proud to have good kids, and all we can do is keep trying to do right by them, provide what they need and hope life, education systems, politics and money do not diminish their beautiful sparks which make them who they are.

Today was also the day I presented a very good friend and highly respected colleague with a paperback of my children’s book Spikes for Hank, after which she sent me a photo of her son reading it. It is the first book in English he is reading by himself, which makes me especially proud seeing as English is his second language. 

Today was one of those days at work which do not really make me happy, which make me wonder why rude and loud people always blackmail their way into getting what they want… one of those days when you either lose it or keep your cool. To be honest, I tried to keep my cool so as not to spread negativity even further. What makes me proud about this ugly part of the work day? I didn’t bring it home. It stayed where it was. 

Some days it works.

  1. Hey Anita,

    My name is Kenneth Harris and I noticed that you are a book reviewer.
    I hope you don’t mind me reaching out to you, but if you like superheroes, then you might also like my newest children’s chapter eBook, “Jet Set Jeff: The Science Defender” available on Amazon as a FREE promotional download from 9-11-17 to 9-15-17 at http://a.co/53SJIc8.

    You see, I am looking for reviewers on Amazon so that I can get some feedback from readers, people just like you.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you would check out my free eBook for this limited time offer and leave me a review. I would really value your opinion.

    My book is 71 pages with some illustrations and can be read in one sitting.
    Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.
