I love living in Texas. There is no where else I could ever imagine having my home or my family at. I don't know weather it is the big ol skies we have reaching across the prairie or if it could be that you never know just what is going to be right around the next corner here. We are a mix up of all types of lands from mountains to forest to harbors to hills. But most of all Texas is home to strong women who have learned how to make something out of lil of nothing and passed that 'stick-to-it' attitude down from generation to generation.
Granny M is just that type of woman. She would make something happen whenever she has a good mind to get the place jumping. It is that can do attitude that I admire the most. She saw much of herself in Margaret from Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble. Being raised in West Texas where you work from sun up to sun down to keep food on the table, that is just like the life that is told here. Granny M also knows how it feels to desire a strong loving man to lead the home. She also gave up on that dream...deciding she could do it on her own better than any one else. But Colleen shows a dream that maybe, just maybe there really is a good man out there who can make one feel Safe in His Arms.
