A dear friend of mine called me last night. It is one of those friends that you click with immediately. You spend years together and become family. We worked together for many years. We became sisters. We knew each other’s secrets and took them to the vault. (and by the way, those kind of friends are few and far between) We vowed we would stay connected after our jobs were outsourced but years went by and of course, we did not stay in touch. But like I said she phoned last night. She had found my blog. She wanted me to know how proud she was of me. I had shared my dreams of wanting to write children’s books with her many years ago. Although this blog is far from being an author it is something.(baby steps) To be honest I had not thought of that dream in many years. When you get older sometimes life does not turn out like you thought. You hit bumps in the road, you get divorced, you lose a parent…….
We shared stories of what had been going on in our lives. She had lost her mother. I cannot imagine how that feels. I feel like my mama is the center of my universe I do not know what a day would be like without her. I could not sleep for thinking about the details of how my dear friend lost her mother, how short our time here is and how I wish more than anything I could live in the moment.
My mom is 85. She has leukemia and vascular dementia. We live together. I work full time. I would love to be free to jump in my car and take her on road trips. My goal for 2019 is to figure out how to spend more fun time with her before it is too late.
My dear friend told me this before we hung up “Write from the heart because you never know if you can help others that are going thru the exact same thing”
I will do that starting today.
Please leave any comments, tips, advice, please. I would love to read it.
I am starting affiliate marketing and will write about it later. I could use some tips on that as well.
Thank you for reading my blog.
Thank you, Susie!
