Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!
What is wacky about this Wednesday, you might ask?
It’s where the characters from my books take over my blog and social media accounts so you can get to know them. Happening every Wednesday until launch day (I think…they’re my characters but I don’t control them.)
*Caleb runs excitedly on screen
I have a new daddy! I have a new daddy! And he’s this big.
*stretches hand as far over his head as possible
Bigger! He’s a fireman, so he spends all day outing fires.
*mimes putting out a fire with a hose
Theo and I watch docu-docu…
Serious shows about animals and trains and stuff. Do you know what sound a dinosaur makes?
*makes a roaring sound while pretending to be a dinosaur
Plus, he reads! He never gets tired of reading the same story like Mummy does.
He makes the best reading noises. Better than Mummy.
That’s a secret. You can’t tell Mummy or she’ll be sad.
*glances over his shoulder and puts a finger to his lips
I’m playing hide and seek with Auntie Tonya. Don’t tell her you saw me.
*Tonya dashes frantically on screen
Did you see a little boy pass through here? He’s about this tall and is wearing a blue and white striped shirt.
*holds hand about waist high
Never mind. It would be just my luck that Caleb goes missing when it was my turn to watch him.
*looks directly at you
Have you ever been happy about something but, at the same time, apprehensive about how things will change? That’s me right now.
*takes deep breath and exhales
You probably have no idea what I’m talking about.
Who Am I?
My name is Tonya McPherson-Hall. I’m married to Pastor Mac.
He’s the love of my life. I can honestly say that. For a time, I didn’t think we’d be together, but God worked everything out in the end.
This is not about me. My older brother, Theo, is getting married.
We’ve always been close and I’m happy that he’s finally found the woman of his dreams to settle down with. The thing is….
He’s marrying our little sister’s best friend. The little boy I’m looking for is her son.
I’m back. I don’t know why I thought I’d be able to manage four boys at the same time.
I’ll never do that again.
*swipes hand over face
Who am I kidding? I’d do anything for Theo and that includes watching his new stepson, even if I’m a little bit jealous of his future wife.
I’m not upset about their marriage, it’s just that…
Remember how I said Theo was marrying our sister’s best friend?
Well, Brianna and Gaby have always been close whereas the two of us were not. Until recently, Brianna went out of her way to avoid me and our family.
Funny how things can seem so obvious in retrospect. What if..? What if…?
Okay, I’m just going to say it. What if Brianna loves Gabrielle more than me?
No, that’s not quite right. I already know Brianna loves Gaby more than she loves me. But, what if now that Gaby is actually her sister, she doesn’t need me anymore?
*remains pensive for a few moments before straightening her shoulders and forcing an upbeat expression
None of that matters because it’s about Gaby and Theo and Caleb. You can read all about their story in His Perfect Family which releases on May 26, 2023.
