Warning: Sappiness ensues

Writing is a solitary endeavor, this we all know.  But, for a lot of us, that actual process would not be possible without support and sacrifices from others.  Talking to Colleen the other day about the Hubby, what he does for a living and how much he travels, reminded me of the sacrifices he has made to make my publishing dream come true.  He works.  A lot.  So that I can stay home to write, raise our kids and work on my degree.  And sometimes, it's a struggle to make ends meet.  But he's always had my back, always believed in supporting me and my dream.  He wants me to do this.  He wants me to succeed.  When I look back and think on the many years that we've had together, I just can't believe that I have someone like him on my side.  He gets it.  He gets me.  He's one hell of a dad, and it doesn't hurt that he's smokin' hot either.  ;-)  It's my ultimate dream to one day be able to take over the financial reins and support him -- to allow him the opportunity to rest and explore his dreams. 

Occasionally, he skims through my blog.  And, yeah occasionally, I have to embarrass him.  Consider this one of those times.  Hi honey!  :D

I can relate. I'm in a similar situation. I still have to pinch myself wondering if I'm going to wake up and find it's all a dream.

That was definitely from the heart... You both are very blessed.

Thanks, Dharma! And congrats on your success (great website you got there). :D

Yeah, I have to agree, d~. :) We are very lucky to have found each other.

Oh gawd! That was particularly sappy. But I must say, just gosh darn cute. It's so good to get a reminder every once in a while that love does still exist. :)

You're a very lucky woman. I'm very happy that you have that and can appreciate it. You and your family are blessed.

You are indeed lucky and very blessed. I am happy you have such a wonderful husband and that you can follow your bliss so freely. It is not sappiness, it just plain happiness, and very well deserved happiness at that. Smile extra big for him tonight.

Awwww... Great entry. Your hubby sounds like a top-notch guy. And it's not like you're NOT working at all, what with raising the kids and writing. I have a feeling that dream of yours will come true.

Now if I could just convince my wife that I don't need to work full time anymore... Maybe we can live in a van, down by the river???

Beautiful post, Kelly.

Very sweet post. I got lucky, too, with a husband who is 100% supportive of my writing dream, and does everything he can to help me out. I hear, too often, from writing friends who feel like their significant others don't "get it", and I feel for them. I'm still in awe that I found such a great guy - glad to hear there are others out there, too!
