Both pictures above were sent last weekend by Henny from Jakarta, Indonesia. She was an ex-student of the online writing course I managed in the early months of this year. When I announced my published book to the students and gave them motivation via weekly e-newsletter, several days later I got a surprised email from her; informing that she got my book in e-book version bought via Xlibris and began to read it. I could read how excited she was via her email. She read everytime she had a chance in her morning/afternoon/evening tea at her house. But because of her busy work schedule--she used to travel everywhere as a government staff and dealing with many important education rules in Indonesia, she wasn't able to continue reading my book in several months.
Last week she kept her promise by sending me her pictures after long visit to Africa, and after that she had a duty to rearrange the rules of Indonesian Scouts and would be tested in public, then it would be brought to the nation conference in the near future before government gives the agreement for the new Scouts Rules that would be applied soon in Indonesia. She said her tight schedules will end in this month and hopefully she will be able to continue reading my book.
Although she has read until chapter 13, she has had a thought for my book. Below I attach what she has sent to me via email in Indonesian:
" . . . dari bab 1 sampai bab 13 saya melihat ada pesan yg ingin disampaikan oleh penulis kepada pembacanya, yaitu pesistensi (persistent) yang didasari oleh rasa antusias, maka apapun pekerjaan atau mimpi yg paling mustahil pun akan dapat dicapai."
It means: my story describes that persistence based on enthusiasm will make every effort or dream reached although we think it is impossible.
Thank you, Henny for your nice pictures. I have saved them in my special file and will appear in my Enthusiasm photo collage.
And this post is written special for her who is celebrating her Birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Henny!! May God bless you in everything you do. Amen.
