Hand Shake

I was signing books yesterday and a woman came up to me and read the name Sherri Mills on my book.

She grabbed my hand and shook it with both hands. She was extremely excited.

She said, "I am so glad to meet you, you saved my sister's marriage." She wouldn't let go of my hand.

I asked her where her sister found my book.

She replied, "Her Counselor gave it to her. "

I loved that.

At my signing a couple of weeks ago a young gentleman came over to my table after peeking around corners for a while. He told me he had been divorced twice and he didn't want to lose this wife.
He asked me what was expected of him at home.

I asked him, "Do both of you work?"

He answered, "Ya, she works two jobs but I make the most money." I had heard that before.

I said, "You need this book."

He answered, "I thought it was their fault the first two times, but when it happens three times, I"m thinking it might just be me."

He bought the book and when I went back to the same store two weeks later he came in and was real excited to tell me how much he had learned. He said, "I had no idea I was supposed to be sharing the work load." Then he said, "She was so excited that I had come up with it by myself. "

He thanked me before he left.

I met so many wonderful people at the signing today. One lady thanked me for the work I had done.

She said, "Please never stop. We need this information. There are entirely too many divorces."

Book Signing

A lady came over to me at the book signing and said she just wasn't happy in her marriage. Her husband didn't do anything bad he was just too boring and she couldn't stand it any more.

I asked her specific questions; Does he drink? Is he a slob? Is he abusive?

I think I was able to come up with quite a few real bad faults. I told her that if she traded her boring husband for another guy she just may end up with one who was guilty of many of these faults, one of them might be that he doesn't like her children.

I told her to take a 3x5 card and write all of her husband's good qualities on it. She must include everything, even something as simple as, does he brush his teeth . Keep the card where she could read it every day.

She seemed to agree and I saw a flicker of hope that she just might have a keeper after all.

I was doing a book signing in Murray yesterday and an elderly man came over to chat. He told me that his daughter walked out on her husband years ago because he wouldn't do anything around the house. He seemed so sad when he told me that she had been miserable ever since.

Then he added, "I hate to admit this but my son's wife left him for the very same reason."

When I told him that my ultimate goal was to stop the skyrocketing divorce rate, he thanked me for getting the information out.

Later A lady came over to my table. As she was scanning through my book she said, "This is really needed, I am a counselor so I know what I'm talking about."
