Lord, this is the work that I prayed would put me on the map. Thanks for ordering my steps and making my dream a reality. You’re an awesome God!
Thanks to my family, especially my husband, for supporting me through another endeavor. Victoria and Andrew’s mantra, “Mommy is a published author!” finally paid off. I’ll always believe in the mustard seed faith.
I want to especially thank my friend, Sibyl Goode-Bines for being the first person to read this from beginning to end in record time. I thank God for allowing us to meet many years ago. You know we’re kindred spirits.
Dana and Melvin, ya’ll know how much you mean to me. Thanks for letting me pick your brain, and your enthusiasm about what was going to happen next kept me going. Thanks for continually asking me what the status was. Some days I felt like giving up, but when I’d think of you three, I felt obligated to move on towards the end!
Lenethia Wells, my assistant at Tube Specialties, thanks for listening to me unload almost everyday about getting this book out. You believed in me while others stood back to see what I was going to do. Thanks, Miss Lady!
To the employees at Tube Specialties, thank you so much for supporting me.
A big thank you goes out to my buddy, Dr. Napoleon Burt. Thanks doc for helping to make sure the medical lingo was on the up and up! You are a true friend.
And as always, to my church family and Macedonia Church in Pittsburgh, PA, you have been life preservers for this southern girl. You never cease to amaze me. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
Finally, to my readers, I know I’ve kept you waiting long enough after years of talking about this novel. I wouldn’t be successful without you. You’re the best! It is my prayer that I continue to write what you want to read. Be blessed.
