Quite often I write for a women's magazine out of Mt. Dora, Florida. Yesterday, I received in the mail two copies of their Girlfriend issue. I was pleased to discover the editor had used my story Paper Hearts In it. It is a story I have told several times about a group of stay-at-home moms who met on the Internet and flew to Baltimore one weekend to celebrate the love of a friend who eventually died from cancer. Actually, it was this event in my life that opened the doors for me to be published and pursue my writing career. I think of Lori each time I get another piece published--her encouragement with my desire to write and the way her love for our group and Jesus changed my life.
