My mother was the most inspirational person in my life. When I would complain about things, she would tell me to be grateful for everything. For instance, I would say that I was bored. Her reply was, well get creative and do something to change the situation.
One day I said, I hate cleaning the house. She quickly answered, “Be thankful that you have a house.” Her words of wisdom stayed with me my whole life.
When I married an extroverted man, who never met a stranger, I again was faced with being grateful in every situation. I was introverted and pretty much a loner when I was single. However, soon after Richard and I were married, I realized that he wanted to entertain people on a routine basis. We had dinner parties at our home and entertained frequent house guests.
I adapted to my new life style and tried my best to be a great hostess. I remembered my mother’s words, so I decided that I would create a humorous book about situations that occurred while we entertained our friends and family.
Thus, House Guests 101 A Survival Guide was born. I turned unique and odd situations into a cartoon like guide. This book includes 52 cartoon like characters and their antics.
Enjoy and have a great laugh!
