Blog Tour: TODAY ONLY by D. Love #giveaway



In life, there are times you are granted a miracle. It may not be the one you wanted exactly, but it will be the one you need. It will prepare you for the next step in your journey and help you learn to accept the life you are given, even if that life can be heartbreaking.

Sneak Peak
 

My time here is dwindling. Everything around me – my body, the transition from winter to spring, the height chart marking the growth of my daughter, Emily – reminds me that the hourglass that is my life has only a few grains of sand left.



It’s my first thought this morning. I awoke early for a fundraiser, the Big Walk for March of Dimes. I start off with my daily routine. I jump in the shower, trying not to notice how much the droplets of water hurt my skin. The sting is too much this morning. I get out quickly, dry off and throw my hair in a simple ponytail at the base of my neck. I catch my reflection in the mirror and stare at myself for a minute.



Just a little longer? So I can watch Em grow up?



My mirror doesn’t have an answer for me.



"Come on, Em!" I call to my daughter. "Get your shoes on, before we’re late."



I turn away from the mirror, then hurry into the living room and grab Emily by the hand.



"You ready Em?" I ask. Whatever dread or fear I feel in front of my mirror fades at the sight of Em’s beautiful blue eyes.



She looks up at me with the biggest smile, and exclaims, "Yes!"



We hop in the car and head towards the Walk. My daughter’s eyes are glowing.



"Mama, this is going to be the best walk ever," she almost squeals in excitement. The innocence of my little angel never fails to humble me.



She doesn’t yet understand that this might be my last Walk with her.



"Yes, honey, this is going to be the best walk ever," I agree.

Not sure how to take this post. I really can't tell much about the story.

I know Cindy, the Blurb doesn't really give anything away. Good thing or bad thing?? How do you all feel about the Synopsis? Are you a Back Cover Girl or a Cover Girl?

Good day and thank you for your wonderful post and having me here today. I would love to hear your opinion, about the blurb. I was so scared of revealing anything from the book. However, looking forward to hearing what your fans like.

I hope you have a beautiful day
