I don’t know what it is with me this week. Everything just seems to take a little longer than usual, including getting to the computer to write this blog.
Maybe it’s because, this morning, after my devotions and journaling, I got to reading a copy of “McKettrick’s Pride”, the next book in the McKettrick Men series. Now, considering that I wrote the book, and therefore know how it all turned out, it was amazing how I got sucked into the story. The book runs very deep with me, especially the part played by the lost, bedraggled dog the heroine takes in and dubs Avalon. It touches a nerve–the defenselessness of animals, and how greatly they depend on our kindness and our willingness to go just a little out of our way to help. Some of Echo’s issues are my issues, too–things I think most women would recognize and relate to. And on top of all that, I just like spending time with those wonderful McKettrick men. What makes them special?
Sure, they’re sexy, and real easy on the eyes. But I love them because they live by their values–integrity, honor, compassion, and courage, especially in the face of adversity.
Have a fabulous weekend. If you haven’t read “McKettrick’s Luck” yet, you might want to pick up a copy and get started. They’re an outfit on the move, those McKettricks.
