Hello my dear friends! Seems like ages since we have visited and way to long since my last giveaway. If you read my last post or can even remember that long ago then you know I took another job besides working out here on the North Forty. Since starting nights I have no clue sometimes whether I am coming or going. No idea what day of the week it is or should I be eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. Totally and completely crazier than my normal crazy. Your shaking your heads and saying that is not possible. I too thought so but believe me when I say that you can always be a little crazier than you think you are now. I am living proof!
Enough on my crazy life let's talk about a book I received from my friend and fellow blogging buddy Dr. Kathy McCoy. It's a lovely book about lessons in life, loss and love--feline style. Dr. Kathy writes about what her two precious cats Timmy and Marina who in time became extraordinary rescue cats that were employed by her as therapy pets.
It's a must read for all my animal loving buddies here in this amazing world of blogging. You know how much I love to find a great book. Purr Therapy is a memoir that will tug at your heartstrings as it has mine. Warning have a box of tissue close by while reading this story.
Dr. Kathy is a psychotherapist and author of more than a dozen books. She has written for Reader's Digest, The New York Times, Redbook, Glamour, Family Circle and a guest writer for my Blogazine on my blog.
Not only in this giveaway will you win a must have book but you will have a book with my name in it. Yep under acknowledgements you will see my name Maggie Mallard. I have to say I thought I had won the academy award seeing my name in one of Dr. Kathy's books. After grabbing a tissue and drying my eyes I called and wrote everyone I could think of about this honor. It truly touched my heart in a way that is hard to describe. I wrote her a note to tell her how grateful I am but I don't think there are words for how I felt knowing that she did this for me. To be acknowledge in a book is an honor alone but to be mentioned in a book as lovely as this one just is like being loved to the moon and back.
So I am sharing that love with you dear friends by giving away one of these books to one of my faithful awesome followers that you guys all have been over these years.
You just have to leave a comment on this post only by February 28th 2015 and tell me you would love to have a copy and I will use the Random Generator to pick the winning number.
Good luck to all of you! I am excited because I love this book and you!
I do want to add that I miss all of you and I have not given up hope to get back into this world of blogging that I have been neglecting for a while now. This night job in all honesty is kicking my old rear end but it's too soon to tell if I can adjust and do both jobs. It has been raining so much here that I know that in less than two weeks I will be mowing like crazy again. Right now I am having all the equipment serviced and getting ready for the work ahead.
If I find that I can not do both then I will give up the night job. There is a possibility that another employee here is going to quit her day job and might want one or two of my five nights. I don't think that I will have a problem with that at all. haha
I hope to share some of the crazy things that have already happened to me up here with you soon.
I did want to go ahead and do this giveaway. I actually wanted it to be done by Valentine's but didn't of course make it.
Your all my sweet Valentine's and I love you!
