The Idaho Writer’s League

Last night I attended a meeting for the Idaho Writer’s League.

We had a guest speaker that is writing his new book. He talked about popcorn stories. Everyone has a story that stands out in your life. I was inspired to write my popcorn story and submit it to the author for consideration for his book. I have been a busy as a bee between working full-time and taking care of my mom after work and writing. I have always enjoyed writing. it has been my escape from the pressures of life. I like being able to look back on a special memory and then create a story behind the event. I am blessed to be able to get my stories published by our local paper.

I had a peaceful morning out on my back porch. I was having a cup of coffee after eating breakfast in my Victorian dinning room. I sat outside enjoying the breeze, the birds were singing, I heard the occasional dog bark a few times. I love my neighborhood. it is so quiet most of the time.  My Assistant Ryan came over and we worked on the some notes for my new story. I am pleased at how the meeting went. We got some things accomplished on the beautiful sunny day.

I do not really talk about my journey as a widow because  my life was largely focused on my being a single parent. It was difficult time to adjust not only loosing your best friend and husband, but I had to take over the role of Mom and dad both. I struggled for a long time trying to raise my very strong-willed son. Jerry struggled with his disease for twenty years. I remember Jerry would be sick and Levi would have the croup at the same time. I would care for both of them and work, hold it all together for all of us. I found strength in my faith. I always keep moving forward in the good things God has for my life.  This way I am so busy, I do not have the time to look back. Some days are still hard not having my son here anymore, but I know I will be okay. I just remember to keep getting up in the morning and face the day with a fresh cup of coffee and worship in my heart and know the God who created the Universe, smile upon my life. it can’t get any better than that.
