The same day the reissue of one of my very favorite books, Mrs. Miracle, goes on sale. This is the story of a widower, with two out-of-control six-year-old boys, who needs help (big time) rebuilding his life after the loss of his wife. It's been a revolving door for way too many nannies who can't measure up to the job—until a delightful woman by the name of Mrs. Merkle shows up at their house. The boys dub her "Mrs. Miracle," and she truly does work miracles for this family!
And a third reason November 24 is turning into a magical day for me: That's when the December issue of Woman's Day hits the newsstands with an article titled "Four celebrated women share their thoughts on holidays past and present—making memories," and I'm one of the four women! I hope you'll pick up a copy and let me know what you think of my story about a special gift my sons gave my parents.
Back to Mrs. Miracle, Wayne is driving with Bogie to our Florida home while I wing my way to New York to meet up with Doris Roberts the first week of December. We're hoping to do the early morning talk show tour for the Hallmark Channel movie, Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle, which will air December 5 at 8 ET/PT and 7 CT and at several other times throughout the month. (Check your local listings.)
