I spent hours on New Year’s Eve with the four little girls

I spent hours on New Year’s Eve with the four little girls, their parents, and their grandparents. We shared laughter, presents, and food. I have been feeling really sad and lonely before I went but spending time with them was a happy event. Connection with others is so important. And I love those girls. I’m grateful they all love me.

My very favorite present from them were the sweet, happy drawings from Leanne and Karen, and seeing their happiness with what I gave them. And the little bracelet that Leanne made me herself, and three little colored pencils that she bought herself at her school for me! I also loved the pink plaid flannel pajamas that they gave me. I’ve never had real pajamas as an adult! So this will be fun.

I wish you love, laughter, and connection with others always.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
