This year for the first time in over nineteen years, there will be a blue moon on Halloween. A blue moon is more than one full moon in a month, which doesn’t happen frequently. I am celebrating one year in print with my book, Blue Moon, a tale of precious things more rare than a blue moon. I thought it would be fun to offer a giveaway to coincide with the two.
To enter, please follow my blog and tell me about something precious and true in your life in the comments.
Quotes from Blue Moon about things rare and true:
How thankful I am the rare friendship Jenay and I formed is strong enough to overlook each other’s pain. Essentially, love meant placing the other person before one’s own heartache or particular pain.
I close the gap, kneel, and wrap my twin in a hug. She cries, and so do I. In a few seconds we lean back. Valerie brings a finger up to swipe my tears away. I do the same for her. What belongs to me belongs to her, and vice versa, once again.
“If you’ll be mine, I’ll be yours. True blue I will be, for to find true love is rare to me.” Vanessa looked at the man before her, and her eyes softened and watered with what she hoped was a glow of reflected love.
My life has been defined by rare, true events. There have been the deep, rich things like abiding love, forgiveness, and friendship but also harsher things—like the mystery of disease.
Vanessa knew true friendship was something rare and required patience, forgiveness, and love. She willed herself to think of Jenay and lay aside her hurts for the sake of moving forward. She hoped Jenay wanted the same. Such an endeavor made friendship worth the effort. Something precious is always worth the work.
