Over the past few weeks I have been thrilled to see that my little blog has had visitors or views from the UK, Canada, South Africa, Mexico, Greece, Germany, Brazil, France, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Italy and South Korea!
Whoever you are – I want to thank you – thank you so much for visiting Allison’s Well and sharing the water – I truly hope you’ll stay and share some more.
Ever since I was small, I have always wanted an international friend; at that time, a pen-pal. I didn’t know about, or use, the Internet. Yeah, I’m that old. 🙂
Since joining the online community, I have been so blessed to have met people from around the world – it has been an amazing, fulfilling, and irreplaceable experience to talk with people from all places and walks-of-life.
(Taking this moment just to say “thank you” and “love you” to a particular foursome of lovely ladies who live respectively in Australia, England and Canada – Jane, Olivia, Tracey and Blessing Counter . . . ‘hugs gently’ You girls are the best!).
And for me personally, to connect with Christian homeschoolers from around the world has filled me with such hope and energy. The Internet can indeed be used for good – and I praise God for the way His children from all over the world can reach out to one another.
Beyond that – it is always fascinated and delighted me to understand people and the unique similarities and differences of our languages, cultures and traditions that create the amazing tapestry of the world around us.
I was reflecting on all of this around the same time that I was creating a giveaway for my book ‘The Reluctant Godfather’. I was very disappointed that, due to the price of shipping, I couldn’t include my overseas friends in all the fun.
So this one is for you. I am proud and thrilled to announce ‘Buddies Abroad Day’ – a day to celebrate all my buddies who live abroad.
A special giveaway JUST for those who live outside of the USA – a chance to enter an exclusive giveaway for a free copy of ‘The Keys To the Chains‘ – a sci-fi action adventure short story.
I would love to have you join my little party and claim your free book.
All you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment below letting us know where you live (i.e. country) and I will email you a pdf copy of ‘The Key to the Chains‘. I look forward to getting the opportunity to meet you, or get to know you better!
Thank you so much for fulfilling a life-long wish. Thank you for your interest. Thank you for your friendship.
