One …

Sometimes, all it takes is one gesture, one word.

Here is to us!

One word can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream;
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald Spring.

One smile can bring a friendship,
One handclasp can lift a soul;
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One cheer can obtain a goal.

One vote can change a Nation,
One sunbeam can lift a room;
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One look can change two lives;
One kiss can make love bloom.

One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer;
One hope can raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true;
One life can make a difference,
One life is me and you…

New Book Cover – I need your help

My mystery novel, Stranger or Friend, will be re-released under new cover and with a few minor additions to the story a couple of weeks before Christmas, 2021. So, in just a few short weeks.

The story takes place right around Christmas time, after all.

As of now, I have two covers to pick from. I love both. So, I’m torn. Would love your opinion, choice, whatever you’d like to add.

So ….

Here we go, and thank you for your help:
