Every time I write a book about something, God makes sure I learn it first.
So what was my lesson behind writing my book, Drama Free? Actually, God made me learn that one AFTER I’d written the book — two days, in fact, before the book released.
I got up one morning to discover flooding in my garage and water seeping up from my living room carpet in our entryway.
It was a leak in the water pipe underneath our kitchen slab! A team of water mitigation specialists came over and set fans out on our carpet, peeled back our kitchen linoleum, tore out our cupboards to check for mold on the floor boards, and then a plumber came over to begin a reroute of the lines underneath our slab to put them in the walls so there would be no more slab leaks.
Suddenly there were eleven holes punched into the drywall in our home. Some in the kitchen ceiling, some in the bathroom, some in the entry way above the front door. In addition, our kitchen was covered in plastic during this reconstruction mess.
To our mischievous kitten, Mowgli, some strange men entered our home and built him a brand new personal playground. Mowgli immediately began to explore those holes in the wall, running through the ceiling rafters and making us think he was lost and couldn’t find his way out. We tried taping up the holes with large pieces of plastic, but Mowgli found a way to enter the forbidden areas. Each time we left the house and came back again it was a desperate search to find Mowgli whom we could hear overhead, but could not find!
