Belinda Lee Cook is a serial entrepreneur by trade. A voracious reader and writer, writing and research are her passion. It should come as no surprise, then, that she is a huge fan of Itty Bitty Books. There is so much practical information packed into a small space. She was fortunate to have work she loved, employees whom she cherished, colleagues whom she admired, a mentor whom she loved and children who taught her daily the joy of learning and caring for others. These friends, colleagues and children, ages five to ninety-five, reminded her that she has been successful because of the people, events, and things with whom she has been fortunate to rub shoulders. Finding a career where you look forward to going to work each day is a blessing. Belinda has been twice blessed. When she retired, selling a Chevron Gas Station, she took up traveling, reading and writing. Through the pursuit of traveling in particular she has met some wonderful people from all over the world. They have become lifelong friends. William Arthur Ward said, "Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." Belinda leaves her readers with this apt message and her gratitude!
