You Are Invited

It is with great delight that I extend an invitation - a call for submissions - to all of you to share your inspirations with our list of readers this summer. The Happily team is busy planning and developing some exciting new projects and products, and so our gem will go out monthly instead of weekly starting now and extending throughout September. However, we are open to maintaining our weekly mailings, should we receive articles and inspirations from you that we all agree would be helpful and appropriate to publish for the benefit of our readers. We have been writing to you now for some 54 weeks (Christmas and Easter excluded), so we decided it was time to give you an opportunity to offer your voice in our weekly messages. Please share with us your passions, and dreams—what inspires you, and what you care about so we can expand and grow together.

If you are unfamiliar with the format we use, feel free to browse other gems within our library to get started! Kindly keep your gem under 500 words and send your submissions as soon as possible to submit your gem. so we can begin this exciting new joint ventureimmediately! If you do not hear from us within two weeks of your submission, kindly notify us again, so we can be sure to be in contact. We have no way of knowing at this point how many articles we may receive, so we appreciate your patience with this process. Realize that we will do everything possible to make certain that your voice is heard, reviewing the articles in the order that they come to us. So, the sooner you can get your piece in, the better. And even though we may not be able to publish your article right away, we will make every attempt to communicate with you on its status.

We thank you in advance for your participation in this exciting new joint endeavor. Prior to publishing your work, our team will make our editing suggestions and send you the revised piece for your approval before it is mailed out to our readers. Cannot wait to hear from you!.

This is going to be the best summer ever—can’t you just feel it!

Loving you!
