I met Yvonne over two years ago during the very first A to Z Challenge. (Not me in the picture - that's Danny.) She is just such a wonderful person. Yvonne is loving, gentle, and very genuine. She also has a wonderful free spirit and an eye for beautiful moments. I just adore this gracious and special lady.
She is here today to share with you a little about her book:
WRITTEN FROM THE HEART:
This book that I wrote
Was to let the readers see.
That after many years of heartache,
There's fun and laughter in me.
Like going to the park,
And descend a slide
While my children and grandchildren
Conveniently disappear and hide.
The book also enlightens people
My blessings I do count.
There are many worse off than me,
That I do not doubt.
My love of traveling is evident to see,
Touring the U.S. and Spain.
So I can escape from
Britain's continual rain.
Also Daniel O Donnell concerts,
I really do enjoy.
I'd travel to the ends of the earth,
To see my "Danny Boy".
The "Blurb" of the book,
I'm proud of I confess.
For the final part was written
By fellow blogger Alex....no less.
I wrote this book in the first place,
To let the whole world see.
But most importantly
That my family would be proud of me.
I know some of you have already bought,
I'm so grateful for a start.
I think there's a poem for everyone,
In "Written From The Heart"

A vast improvement over MIB II, which lacked in the humor department. This one plays more like a straight adventure film, although Will Smith has some very funny lines. It involves time travel and wraps up a lot of plot ties. Best part was Josh Brolin’s performance as a young agent K – he nailed Tommy Lee Jones. Not a movie that you have to catch in the theater, but it was good.
