DAY THREE: I’m trying

Looking forward to the future.

The impetus for my upcoming Paris trip is just fulfilling a lifelong dream. I’ve always rejected the concept of “A bucket list,” yet I am conscious of wanting to start this next chapter of my life before …well, I kick the bucket.

My mom was a tough woman. A smart, fiery, determined woman who loved her kids with the ferocity of a mama lion. She had so many plans for her life—a life she kept waiting and waiting to begin.

Mommy died Christmas of her 56th year on this earth. That Christmas is fast approaching for me. I needed to celebrate her life and mine by no longer waiting, but acting.

Here’s to you “ma mere.” And to all the hard-working mamas out there with hopes and dreams. I’m going to parlez vous my butt off!

If you want to PLAN A SCHOOL VISIT, need a Speaker for an upcoming event or SCHEDULE any other book talk: write "REQUESTING AUTHOR" in the subjct of your message. (That’s how the cool kids do it!) I can also be reached through my publicist with Little, Brown Books [email protected]

If you’re a teacher, parent or student with any other type of question or comment: write “ASK THE AUTHOR.” That will help me distinguish it from all the other less fun emails.
