365 MOMENTS OF GRACE: “Dreams DO Come True”

Blog Post by Cynthia Starborn

June 21, 2016

Flower background,

Ever since I was a child, I have dreamed of publishing a book.  When I was in elementary school, my paternal grandfather, who shared my passion for writing, typed my poems and stories on an electric typewriter and bound them into little handmade books, just as he did with his own poems and stories.  When I was in high school,  my dad started creating a family poetry calendar, with a poem for each month of the year, and I quickly became a regular contributor.

Over the years, opportunities to share my creative work with a wider audience started to appear, in the form of newsletters, magazines, newspapers, and blogs.  My reasons for writing have also evolved and expanded, from the simple joy of creation, to the deeper joy of touching people’s hearts and souls, and inspiring more beauty and magic on this planet.

Today, I am honored to share with you that one of my personal narratives, “Divine Timing,” has been published in the anthology, 365 Moments of Grace, almost 8 years to the day after Grandpa Dan passed away.  The family-friendly story I share in this anthology relates to another personal dream I had–about teaching English in France–that took longer than I anticipated to come to fruition, but that ultimately manifested at the perfect time.   While a part of me would like to have been able to show Grandpa Dan this published book while he was still alive, I know he is still watching over me, still cheering me on from the heavenly realms.  I am glad that I will be able to share this book with my dad–and mom!–shortly after Fathers’ Day.  I also hold the intention that whoever reads my story about “Diving Timing,” reads it at the perfect time, and feels supported in their life dreams as well.
