There’s a wocket in my pocket. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! You share a special day with my youngest son, Casey—and we are going to celebrate with him at a Equestrian center riding horses with his friends.
Today, Becki and I joined with a bunch of other like-minded folk to read Dr. Seuss books in elementary classrooms all over Warren County and Vicksburg. I read to Casey’s class three different books this morning. My favorite and Casey’s too was A Wocket In My Pocket.
It was a lot of fun and thus it has been a good day tempered with tears I have shed contemplating another special day with my son Cole. I want to write about that at some point in the future. When I can, at least, without shorting out my keyboard from the waterworks that still so frequently flow.
Coming up in a few days is a blog I am going to call something like Fight Like A Man You Dirty Dog.
In the meantime, there’s a wocket in my pocket and that wocket is you.
Let me explain…
I have mentioned here quite frequently or at least alluded to a desire to get my voice back—to have an avenue of ministry–to give help and hope to others who question or struggle along the way.
I am positive I have—through experience and struggle—something worthwhile to offer. So many of you have reinforced and built that belief. Many also have encouraged me to continue writing and to even contemplate authoring a book.
I want to do that with all of my heart. That’s been a lifelong dream. I have it written down as a goal I am pursuing with everything I have.
In Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform, he shares what a person with my dreams can do to build a platform in order to reach their goals.
Did I mention the wocket in my pocket? My secret weapon in building my platform is you.
Here’s how you can help me build a new platform of ministry in this new life, and new faith I am building:
- Subscribe to Desperately Wanting To Believe Again by filling in your email address and clicking the subscribe button. The more subscribers I have, the traffic I generate helps a publishing house believe a market exists for what I want to ultimately write.
- Check out my About page. Tell me what you think. Send me your suggestions. Share with others. If you like what I am doing, send me a testimonial or an endorsement. If you think your opinion isn’t important or valid, then let me remind you of what Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears Hears A Who had to say: After all, a persons a person. No matter how small. I want to hear from you—particularly if what I am writing is of help in any way.
- Also, check out my Speaking page. If my story of tragedy, heartache and ongoing recovery—physically, spiritually, or emotionally—is of value, then consider inviting me to speak to your group or organization.
- And last, please continue to share in whatever social media you prefer—the more the merrier.
Thank you for reading, commenting, and encouraging.
You are blessing me beyond measure!
