The Samantha Years

Chicken Soup! By Samantha

I’m writing today’s blog because Mama only has one typing hand. The other hand is giving herself a pat on the back….

A couple months ago Chicken Soup for the Soul accepted her essay, The Blessing Bowl, to be printed in their book, Count Your Blessings! Today, the book was distributed. We are very excited to see Mama’s work printed in a book! This is also Mama’s first paid writing gig…which is exciting too!


Here’s Mama in the bookstore with her Chicken Soup book!


I think it’s a nice cover!


And the essay!

The Blessing Bowl is the story of my 1st birthday. It’s a story of sharing, love, family, gratitude and changed expectations. I’m quite fond of it…especially since it’s about me 🙂

Mama also has books! If you are looking for a Christmas gift, shoot her an email and she’ll send you a book….heck, I’ll even sign it 🙂
