A Tribute to Starting Over by Jennifer Hope

Thank you Jennifer Hope for sharing this beautiful tribute with us! We are honored to have you as a member of our storytelling community!

A Tribute to Starting Over: Stories of New Beginnings by Eileen Doyon-Inspired this special lyrical sway of ideologies in a poetic format for future publications via songs, recited almost as literature on keynote spotlight!

As a young girl…

There was tension…

Lots of dancing…

Exercising…

Typewriters too…

Word Processors…

Then, laptops and tablets with too many features-to boot!

Today, I’m good…

With or without fancy technology…

More reserved perhaps…

At times, somewhat a muse…

Not at all amused when life gets hard…

Yet, still a bit more hopeful and prayerful than before…

Prefer a break from time to time…

However, perhaps a book to read…

A computer screen without any internet service to just envision as a stage to recite poetry…

Perhaps inspired by “Story Teller’s Talents”, technology though, truly does have its time and place…

Just saying that in the yesteryears, there was a tale or story teller or two, sharing heartfelt views…

So I reference those days of heartfelt bliss, perhaps these days with much more stress or emphasis on

CORE VALUES that resonated so well with Humbled Heroes in my Family Tree!

On this note, there’s so much to be grateful for indeed!

Thank you again Author Eileen Doyon and Danny Doyon.

In order to extend this Honorable Tribute to Veterans and Law Enforcement Officers; in addition, First Responders such as Peace Officers and Corrections Officers and All areas of Law Enforcement as well as First Responder(s) areas of expertise-pause, I have never let one day go by without remembering Our Fallen Heroes with their Lives lost for Our Blessings and every single day to breathe in fresh air-in order to inhale and exhale, to focus on exercises that will rejuvenate our essence and create a synergy of lifestyles to enjoy every milestone that paves way to brighter days-pause, let us not forget Our brave Heroes and let us thank each and every Patriotic-Passionate Keynote Speaker aka First Responders with a heart, with a voice to speak on the behalf of others and not lose sight of the hope to have our Prisoners of War (POW) Heroes prayerfully find their way back to Home, back to safety, wherever that be…

I prayerfully would like to recall the yesteryears reciting heartfelt poetry to Late Veteran Grandpa, as Grandpa’s Girl…

Blessings and Prayers Respectfully!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Hope aka Jennifer Hope Siller-Lasry

Thank a First Responder T-Shirt | Unforgettable Faces and Stories

Thank a First Responder T-Shirts NOW AVAILABLE

We are so very excited to introduce our T-shirts to support The First Responder Children’s Foundation.  This Foundation is dedicated to helping children and families of fallen First Responders.  The Foundation provides financial support to children whose parent has been killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty, as well as to families enduring financial hardships due to a line of duty loss.  It is a nationwide Foundation.

Unforgettable Faces and Stories’ theme of our eighth book is, Tributes and Dedications to First Responders.  We owe so much to each and every one of them, men, women, and our four legged friends, dogs and horses.

This book will be amazing and the stories will be so varied in their tributes. 

We are proud to involve kids with this book.  What do kids ages 5 and up think of when they hear “First Responder”, who are they in their minds, what do they look like, and what do you think their story is?  Kids are our future First Responders with big shoes to fill. 

We are inviting schools to participate and have students draw a First Responder.  We are taking that drawing and adding other drawings to create a T-shirt.  The T-shirts theme, “Thank a First Responder.”  We will have a canvas bag available as well.  A percentage of T-shirt and canvas bag sales goes directly to The First Responder Children’s Foundation.  Kids helping kids!

We are so honored to support this Foundation!  Come and join us!

I especially love this book because I was published in it! 🙂
This is such a great collection of inspirational stories by men and women who endured and found their ways after starting over.

 

Sharing our Hearts in Letters to Heaven

Tracy Smith on Letters to Heaven

Thank you Tracy Smith for sending me this beautiful message about Letters to Heaven and for being a part of our community of storytellers!

“In my book “Little ‘Bits’ of Buford” I mentioned my friend, Eileen Doyon’s, book “Letters to Heaven”. Eileen’s book is one that allowed people to write a letter to their loved ones who have gone on before them. Writing is such a therapeutic way of releasing emotions for any reason. I used to do this as a teenager not realizing at that time how therapeutic it was. I would write down whatever I wanted and then tear it up. A great release for anything. In Eileen’s book is the letter I finally got the strength to write to my daddy in heaven. If you’ve lost a loved one, what would YOU say to them if you could? I guess an even more important question would be is; what would your loved one write about you? Check out my friend Eileen Doyon’s Book, “Letters to Heaven” to see how people have expressed their love for their loved ones gone on before them.”
