Shout out to an author
I am a fan of many authors, and I have read thousands of books. But it is the rare author that I find, who can bring me to so many highs and so many lows in the span of 300 pages. I have just completed ( in two days ) two books; Finding Cinderella and Hopeless. Within these two novels, I have laughed OUT LOUD, I cried, I was anxious, upset, angry. My emotions have run the gamut.
It is because of this, I am compelled to write this post. Never have I felt a need to thank or express appreciation of an author for their writing. However, there is something special about Colleen Hoover’s novels that make me want to help get her novels out there, and share the ride with others. I sincerely hope she will continue writing for a very long time. She is the writer I wish I always could have been, and aspired to be so long ago.
So please visit her site, follow her here on WordPress, as well as Twitter and Facebook.
Thank you for reading
The older I get the less patience I find I have. I have done the financial info for school, I am waiting on the advisor. I am not only working on this for me, but daughter will be starting Jr. college in summer session as well. There are no timelines , no information when you will hear back, I am waiting to fall through the cracks. I do not want to be nuisance, and I know we are not the only people on the planet. But the waiting on other people is killing me. I am one of those if I could, I would do it all myself. Beginning to end then I would not need to wait . Well I guess it’s out of my hands, but I just may become nuisance anyway. Squeaky wheel gets the grease and all that.
Until next time….
Share with me the journey I will begin, as I enter the second phase of my life. I will be starting college for the first time just days after my 40th birthday. Being a non traditional student, I am enrolling in alternative medicine. Herbalism and aromatherapy. While am terrified and excited, I know just as I knew my husband was my soulmate, that I am finally on the right path. There is no second guessing, and I am determined to make this happen.
So please, come with me into the mystic, into the fields of the unknown.
You told me today , you need to go. Leave , figure things out. You told me today , you can’t do this anymore, you didn’t know what you wanted. You told me today you are confused, scared. You told me today you didn’t think I’d understand , that I would be angry cause you changed your mind. You cried when you said you just know you can’t stay here and do this anymore you have to leave.
What you didn’t tell me was how to not melt into a puddle of tears, how to look at you and stay strong. You didnt tell how I am supposed to let you go.
But, what I didn’t tell you was , that as your mother, I’ve dreaded this day for so long. That my heart breaks but fills with pride. That I will be strong on the outside and breaking to pieces inside.
Leave knowing that I love you . That you can come home always and again. That the world is a scary place but I will be there to pick you up, should it knock you down. I will run to you anytime day or night and think and wish for all good things to come. I’m here and I will support you and be your biggest fan.
So , my daughter, remember to ” breathe deep and fly high ”
I will be here when you land .
