Sometimes people take the time to write to let me know how much they've enjoyed the momentary escape from their problems and struggles.
With that said, there are some letters that touch me more profoundly than others. I received one of those this weekend. It's the kind of letter that, even though it's short, I was crying before I reached the end. I asked the writer if I could share it and she graciously agreed.
"Just a word of thanks...I suggested that my daughter read your "Hitwoman " series. She is 40 years old and diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer, sad one day, angry the next. I thought your laugh out loud humor would be of help. Your books helped her to escape the moment and to prepare her forward to a year of fighting cancer with surgery followed by chemo. Again, thanks."
Are you weepy too?
