Day 2332: Taking chances and Getting a Chance to Skype with my Favourite Author

The more chances you take the luckier you get – that’s my message to the world.


It’s 11: 20  AM on day 2332 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 3: 2-6 and learn a new word – Surreptitious [sur·rep·ti·tious] adj. Kept secret, particularly because it would not be approved of. “His surreptitious drug habit could land him in jail.”


Recently I emailed Laura Schroff, author of one of my favourite books An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny, I emailed her saying I loved the book and would love to meet her in person or Skype with her I didn’t expect her to read my email or reply so you can imagine my utter shock when I saw an email from her this morning saying she could Skype with me early next month (it’s amazing what can happen when you have the courage to risk being ignored and rejected).
