My teaser sentences for today [Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright (Pg 7)]:

On her last day of kindergarten, Hope Jensen announced, walking hand in hand with her mother, that she had finally made a decision about her career. "One day I will grow up to become either president of the United States or a famous newspaper reporter."

  2. Rebecca Says:

    Oh that is so cute.

    I think in kindergarten I still wanted to be a nun - which, I should point out, came entirely from my MANY viewings of Sound of Music. Our family wasn't a church going one, so you can imagine how odd it must have sounded.

    Sounds cute! I think I've seen an interview with the author about it before. I'll have to put my teaser up in the morning. Too tired now!


  4. Melody Says:

    Shana - Me too! ;P

    Rebecca - It doesn't sound odd to me at all! :) I too enjoyed Sound of Music and don't think I'll ever get tired of it.

    Jen - It's an inspiring and heartwarming story! I'm enjoying it so far. Can't wait to read your teaser. :)


  5. Trish Says:

    Quite the decision--president or reporter. I've left you something here. No pressure too play along, but grab your award!


  6. Melody Says:

    Trish - I'd definitely choose being a reporter if I were the little girl, hehe. ;P

    Thank you so much for the award! :)

    Speaking of The Christmas Jars, I work with Jason and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:
