Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

Created by Campfire 19 years ago, Absolutely Incredible Kid Day was designed to honor youth. Adults and teens are asked to write, post, tweet, and tag (#AIKD) notes of encouragement and inspiration to the kid or kids in their lives.

When I asked other authors to take part in my random holiday blog this year, Cat Michaels jumped on this date. If you are lucky enough to know Cat, your life has been touched by her uplifting and positive messages and unwavering support. I would venture a guess that Cat is as sweet as the tea she drinks in the South!

Although today’s blog is departing from my usual structure of having an author pen a blog specifically for me to post, I ask you to visit Cat’s website, www.catmichaelswriter.com, to see what she has to say about this special day. While you are there, take a peek around her site and see for yourself what an inspiration she is to many!
