Feb. 2nd. Question: Is there someone who supported or influenced you that perhaps isn't around anymore? Anyone you miss?
When I finally pursued my writing journey, it was my mother who read all my novels. While she hadn't participated in the actual process, I could always count on her support.
It's been 3 years since I had to say farewell. I miss her terribly, but I still feel her in my heart. 💖
So sorry for the loss of your mother. It sounds like you were very close to her. It's so awesome that she was so supportive of your writing.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry she's no longer with you. Cool she read all of your books.ReplyDelete
I lost my mother a long time ago and it still hurts. My deepest sympathies, Constantine. She sounded very special.ReplyDelete
My mother passed over ten years ago and she also read all of my books. Plus she bought extra to give as gifts.ReplyDelete
My heart goes out to you, Cathrina. My mother passed, too. I ascribe every odd noise in my house to her. I just can't let her go.ReplyDelete
Our mothers are always in our corner. Sorry you don't have yours anymore. Mine left about five years ago, and I miss her every day.ReplyDelete
It's nice you can remember the positive impact your mother left with your writing. Even though she's gone, it's awesome there are positive memories.ReplyDelete
A mother's love is to be cherished forever, even if only in your heart. So sorry for your loss, but I'm glad the memories are good. ❤️ReplyDelete
Mothers are definitely special. I'm missing mine as well.ReplyDelete
I always wish my dad could have read some of my articles. I wasn't even writing seriously when he passed. I'm glad you had your mom's support while you did.ReplyDelete
Mother's support is priceless. Mine couldn't read my writing - she doesn't speak English - but she is cheering me on nonetheless.ReplyDelete
It's strange, but I feel that I'm closer now to some people in my life who have passed and in a way their effect on my writing has only grown. We're never really apart :)ReplyDelete
Same here. I miss my mother's input and advice on everything from books to husbands every single day.ReplyDelete
I lost my mom in 2020, so I know that pain. I'm glad she was well enough to come to my first book release party. Big hugs.ReplyDelete
