I went to pick up The Husband's dry cleaning today. It was 3.45pm but the dry cleaning lady was out to lunch till 4pm. So, I waddled upstairs to the library where a lovely idea occurred to me. I searched the NLB catalogue for my own book: Internal Drive Theory(R): Motivate Your Child to WANT to Study.
What I saw got me so excited that I absolutely had to tell someone. I skipped up to the nice Malay lady who was having a peaceful time arranging books back on the shelves. I kind of giggled and then I squealed and then I pointed at myself and said "Look! Me! I wrote this book!!" and "Looooook! EVERY SINGLE copy is either On Loan... Reserved... or In Transit to Reservation. At first, the lady stared at me like I was a nut case. Then, she started to squeal too... and then she went and gathered her friends and we all squealed together. What a nice lady to share in my joy!!
I thank God. I thank God that people like my book so much that they're queuing at the library for it. Thank you God. Thank you!!
I suspect book sales will go down once this post goes up but I am too happy to care. May this book shine love into countless children's lives for generations to come... because how a child is treated today will define how the same child will treat his/her kids in future. Yes! May love spread like a contagion or a forest fire to touch the lives of uncountable children.
In Jesus' name I pray this. Amen.
