My sincere thanks to Delilah for allowing me to return to her wonderful blog and share an exciting update of Diana Cosby’s Romance Readers Help Build A Habitat For Humanity Home.

A bit of background.  Romance readers are AMAZING, and SO is Habitat For Humanity, a charity that I love supporting and volunteering for.  Several years ago, I thought, why not pair the two and help a deserving family receive a home?  And, the Diana Cosby’s Romance Reader’s Help Build A Habitat For Humanity House fundraiser was born.

I contacted the Habitat For Humanity office in Grayson County, Texas, where I’ve had the honor of helping with several builds and spoke with Laurie Mealy, Executive Director.  She embraced the project and was thrilled at the thought of pairing romance readers, who love stories where heroes and heroines overcome challenges to make their dreams come true, with making the dream of home ownership for a deserving family a reality.

Goal:  Raise $55,000 for Grayson County, Texas, Habitat For Humanity to help build a Habitat For Humanity Home.

I kicked off the challenge by donating $200.  As I write this, we’ve raised $27,542, and we’re now OVER ½ WAY TO OUR GOAL to raise $55,000!!!  Romance readers are amazing, and I have complete faith that like stories they love, they will continue to join together to raise the remainder of the amount necessary to help give a deserving family a home.

How it works…

Again, my sincere thanks to Delilah for allowing me to return to her blog, and another HUGE thanks to everyone for helping make an incredible difference in a deserving family’s life.  For when they walk into a Habitat For Humanity house, it’s more thank mortar and wood, but a place they can call home.

A Couple Prom Pics & Open Contests
Sunday, April 10th, 2022

Last night was prom for the 18-year-old and 17-year-old. It was a day-long ordeal for the girl to get ready. This is a photo of her corsage and her date’s boutonniere, which ended up creamier-colored than white, but they really didn’t care. They were both all smiles and laughter. Very happy. They met up with friends at the local college where there are some very great backdrops for photos, and my dd obliged them by taking dozens of photos. I’ll share a few on my Facebook friends page.

They took this one for fun to symbolize the end of prom.

I went to bed before everyone came home, so I’m dying to hear how the night went. I’m sure there was plenty of drama. I hope the girl and her boyfriend made it through the night without breaking up. That our 18-year-old found plenty of folks to dance with (since he disinvited his date for disrespecting his sister). That they all had good, clean fun. The 17-year-old was hoping to end the night at Waffle House rather than the After-Prom Party because she’s not a fan of drunken drama. If they did, the 18-year-old will have been disappointed. 🙂

When I think about my own prom, I wasn’t very popular—I was “the new girl” that last year of high school. I was lucky to get a date because this Arkansas town was very cliquish, and you really did have sharp divisions around the various groups. The only accepting group was the Stoners. So, guess who I spent my time with…

What about you? Did you go to prom? Did you go with someone special? Was it wonderful? Boring? Drama-filled?
