No, I didn’t disappear forever. I’m still here, breathing, and I couldn’t stray from blogging for so long. There’s going to be a lot to write about this year, and it won’t be anything I’ll want to forget. If this is the year of vision, I’m starting out seeing through a glass darkly, but expect to know so much more by the end of it.
A year ago I met my husband for the first time, and though we didn’t talk then, I knew he existed and that allowed everything else to come. It’s strange for me to think I’ve known him for only a short time, but a year is a momentous mark. I’d be okay if none of what happened did, I think, but it’s so much better with him. Even with my writing, he turned into a raving fan and was there to support me for the launch of both of my books.
I once heard an author discuss how his wife gave him a gift of time to develop his writing skills away from work. She worked to support them while he focused on his craft, and it paid off in the end as writing is now his full-time career. So that support from my husband was one very important good sign from the beginning.
Sometimes I’m a sucker for emotional Got Talent auditions like this one I found the other day. Something about the trust these young aerial performers had in each other and the background music for their act made some words come to my head.
A Pact and a Promise by Aubri Wilson I'll make you a pact I'll make you a promise That even when we're far away I'll never forget you I'll never regret you And I'll come back to you someday On our own missions separate You in the mountains And I in the sea To combine again at a future time And when you miss the old memories We've had and simple days And feel lonely at night Look up at the same moon I'll be watching And I'll send you my song You'll hear it carried to you If only in dreams we see each other For a while, I'll fly and take the trip Every night to hold you before you wake And if you cry in the morning Soon the sun will help you smile And you'll be finding all you need To discover on your own But if time falls over itself And you start to feel lost Know I'm reaching for you And soon enough dear I'll be by your side again For I made a pact And I made a promise
