You never forget your first time!
Opening the rural Alabama mailbox and finding a package with my name on it was a big deal for a then six-year-old boy. Tearing into the box like it was Christmas, I soon held my first book, Mike Mulligan And His Steam Shovel, one of the Weekly Reader Children Book Club’s offerings.
The tale of a hard working man, who, along with his loyal machine, charted years of construction projects, Mike was being phased out as more modern-day equipment and their operators arrived onto the scene. But, his work and legacy weren’t done; thus, another chapter was created for this blue collar testament of perseverance.
As a boy, the book entertained and enlightened with its morals of self worth and determination. As a soon to be 55-year-old man, the messages still ring true – perhaps, even louder!
When my career shifted eight years ago from corporate America to my psychic medium practice, I fell in love with books all over again. Since then, I’ve read practically a library’s worth on a host of spiritually related topics, not to mention countless biographies of trailblazers and pioneers in this realm of work. With each page, each chapter and each publication, my knowledge continues to grow stronger.
More importantly, all the reading has personalized the subtle underpinning of my favorite childhood book: my work and legacy aren’t done.
Love and light,
