The Word Behind the Pages

"I'm going to write a book."
I must have been crazy the day I told my wife those words. Until that moment, I had never expressed interest. She never saw it coming. See my earlier post: The Beginning.

She smiled and said, "Okay."

That is the only word I've needed to hear since. It is my guide, my support. That word tells me everything that I need to keep going. It confirms that I am crazy to do this; however, that word reassures me that I have her support.

I can't imagine trying to take on this endeavor without my wife. She is the inspiration behind every page I create. We're on a long journey and before every step into the dark unknown, I can hear her tell me it will be OKAY.


  1. Spousal support is crucial...and awesome. :)

    Enjoy your journey.

  2. This is so sweet. I'm very fortunate to have the support of my husband through this wild ride.

  3. Nice! Even if they think we're a little crazy (or is that just me???), our spouses are so important in helping us find that time!

  4. Back from camping. It's great to hear all of your wonderful comments and fantastic to learn that you are receiving similar support.

  5. Awesome. So great to hear you have an amazing source of support.

    Write on!

  6. Thanks, Gabriela. Every word of encouragement is an inspiration.
