For me, today marked the last day of the first full week of school for the year. Teaching high school is always interesting–and usually tiring, especially at first. I’m looking forward to the long weekend.
So I was especially excited to find a box on my doorstep when I got home.
It’s my author copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s newest book, Dreams and Premonitions: 101 Stories of Miracles, Divine Intervention, and Insight.
Here’s the publisher’s description:
Sixth sense, gut feeling, instinct. Whatever you call it, sometimes we have no logical reason for knowing something—but still we know it. In this collection, you’ll read 101 stories of intuition, insight, and inspiration that will amaze you and encourage you tap into your own inner wisdom
We all have the ability to tap into our intuition, but often find it hard to do. Dreams and premonitions are often the way our intuition or our faith in the beyond manifest. You will be awed and amazed by these true stories from everyday people who have experienced the extraordinary. The 101 stories in this book will enlighten and encourage you to listen to your dreams and your own inner voice.
My story, “The Mentor,” details a life-changing dream I had in which my grandfather, who I never met in life, guided me down the right path and led me to where I am as an author. I never cease to be amazed by the way we are all connected–and the way we influence and help each other even when we aren’t aware of our impact. It’s a gift I’ve been given as a teacher–the chance to touch countless lives even if I’ll rarely know the extent of my impact. And it’s great motivation to live each day a little better.
