Wow. I am just back from my final appointment with Dr. Colwell, the most wonderful endocrinologist ever who is finally retiring, (he’s turning 80 this year!) and have big news!
During my appointment I was telling the diabetes educator (who I’ve known for years) about my book, and she got a funny look on her face. She put her hand to her mouth and leaned forward to whisper something in my ear and I was thinking, what is she doing? She said,
“I want you to meet someone.” She lead me out of the room and whispered, “It’s someone famous.” and opened the door and sitting in the examining room right next to me was Pat Conroy and his wife, Cassandra King!!!!!! Holy S–T! I was completely flustered and hope I didn’t make a fool of myself but they were so kind and asked me questions about my book and gave their email address and said for me to contact them! Wow! This is a sign from above, from God or my dead grandparents or a guardian angel or “the universe” (as Dad likes to call anything spiritual), or else it was just good luck. I’d like to believe it was a sign from above, from you know who telling me to keep going with this book.
Thank you Pat Conroy and Cassandra King for talking to me, thank you to Jane, my diabetes educator, for introducing me and thank you to whoever is responsible for putting me in the right place at the exact right time!
