Hey everyone. I’m sorry for the long absence. I’ve been going through a lot lately with my mother’s death, changes at my day job, and trying to turn the book I’ve been writing for the past year and a half into something worth reading. But it looks like this year is teaching me a very valuable lesson. No matter how much I try to prepare for the worst things that could happen, I will never really be prepared.
Sometimes you have to say goodbye to the things you love and the people you love whether you want to or not, regardless of how hard you try to hold on to them. Mom was the light of my life. For years I have been afraid of losing her and always imagined myself falling apart if it happened. I just knew that I would not be able to cope and would probably fall into a deep depression and that my love for life would die along with her. I prayed all those years that God would help me to get through it and much to my surprise…he did. I will always remember her as being the best mom a girl could ever have. She was always there for me no matter what and I will love her forever.
Changes are going on at work that has been rather stressful at times and things are quite uncertain at this time. I will not bore you with the details but I’m hoping that things turn out for the best.
My work in progress has been officially discontinued indefinitely. After struggling and stressing over it, I realized that it is not a story worth telling and my readers deserve better than that. I have decided to begin again on a new project and I feel a lot better about that decision. This is the only thing that I didn’t mind saying goodbye to. The plot of the story was such a mess that not even the best authors in the world could’ve salvaged it. I hope my new project will become my next published novel. I will keep you updated on how that progresses.
Today is Father’s Day and since my dad died in 2018, I just want to mention how much I love him and miss him and thank him for raising me and my two brothers who are also dead. I am the last Butler in my family tree now and it feels weird to say that. I hope that I can spend the rest of my life making my family proud. My son and I plan to live our lives to the fullest because we learned that life is just too damn short. Have a Happy Father’s Day everyone.
Until next time…
