That's awesome, Jaime. I love watching your videos, and I think it's incredible how you can always bring a smile to my face, and encourage everyone, while telling about your day, or week, or more.

Happy birthday, my friend.

I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day thoroughly, and that you enjoy taking your June break

I've been wanting to ask you if the changes I've made have helped you in finding what you're looking for better....and if you like the audio version of the episodes?

Absolutely!! I love listening to, and feeling the emotions in the book.

Thankyou.

Thanks Hyrum =)

It's been a wonderful day.

I know I say 'break', but it'll be a focused effort to get a lot more created and prepped for you guys...I have to pull on the reigns hard so I don't wear myself out.

Going to bed at 11:30-midnight and getting up at 3-4am does NOT work for me anymore.

I'll still get up at 4am, but I have to schedule my time better...and discipline myself.

I'm in this for the long haul, God willing.

Good call!!

I've never been self disciplined enough to consistently get up that early, and I'm afraid I value my rest tone to much, sometimes.

I love reading your stories, but am not really much of a talker, so tend to "let sleeping dogs lay", and funny generally comment much, but I do want you to know that I value your words very much, and thoroughly enjoy reading your books.

I also love, love, love hearing your narrations instead of listening to the substack narrator read your chapters.

Great work, Jaime, and thanks for lifting our spirits.

Oh, I am so happy to hear that you enjoy the readings!

Been a little nervous about it -- I'm no voice actor, but I always read these stories to my children...and I enjoy doing that.

When the option arose for me to do this here on Life Of Fiction, I thought some of you might enjoy that option.

Good. Good. I'll keep doing it then.

It was amazing. Felt so loved and happy...received tiny gifts from my grandkids that made me smile from ear to ear...drawings, handmade cards, pieces of candy.

That's the thing I love about small children. When they give you candy as gifts, they give YOU what THEY like,...which, IMO, makes it extra special.

Thank you, little sister. It was such a lovely day -- all I wanted was to be with my family. They all came over and we had a lovely BBQ -- OH, and my daughter Carley made me a complete new 'experimental' cake.

...now my #1 FAVORITE cake.

Ginger cake. Think of a Ginger Snap Cookie...as a cake, with super rich/thick Caramel frosting.

I'm a diabetic and it gave he a headache from sugar shock in 15 minutes!

....amazzzzzing.
