On the Road Again

It felt great to be home for two days, but now I’m on the road again. I headed for Kansas City this morning to teach at the HACWN writer’s conference. This conference holds a special place in my heart because it’s where I got my start. Back in 1998, I attended this conference and got bit by the writing bug. Five years later, I began writing full time.

Many of the people I met in 1998 and over the next couple of years at the conference have moved on and they no longer attend the conference. That sort of bums me out, but I’ve already bumped into so many people I met at the conference in recent years and it is fun to catch up with them. I saw one guy today who handed me a published copy of his book—the same book that was just an idea as we discussed it five years ago at the conference.

Life is about relationships—both new and established.

I met a woman today whom I’ve never met before. She contacted me via email before the conference to let me know she signed up to pray for a member of the conference faculty and she got my name. Today she told me she’s still praying for me. She even handed me a gift bag this afternoon. It was a very humbling experience.

Tonight, after I got back to my hotel, a woman on the conference faculty knocked on my hotel room door and handed me a pop. She heard me say I wanted one earlier and she went out of her way to bring me one.

Tomorrow is a new day. I’m going to look for a way to be a blessing to somebody else the way several people were a blessing to me today.
