A moment to thank my husband.

A thank you to my husband for his service to this country and for being an all around great guy.

My husband was already home from his military service when I met him. He was a member of the United States Air Force. He served 8 years and was deployed overseas for Desert Storm. He was fortunate to be stationed all over the US and was able to travel to Europe and the Middle East.
He doesn't talk about his service much but when he does he spins amazing tales about the places he visited and the people that he met.

Knowing that I wanted to spin my own stories he bought me a laptop so I could write my 'great American' romance novel. I thought I would pump out a few books, become famous and make him a stay-at-home dad.
I failed.
But he still believes in me and that means more to me than anything else.
When I feel like crap because I received yet another rejection or when I get feedback explaining that I have more work to do, he refuses to make a big deal about it and tells me to get back to it.

He's my best friend, a fantastic husband, and an amazing father.

Thanks for being in my life.


  1. Heather, seriously, you're making me bawl here. I'm so very happy you have such a wonderful companion and friend for a dear husband. What a wonderful support you have in him.


    As a writer, I can totally empathize with your anguish in rejection. Though writers are pretty isolated, we're all in this together.

    I wish you the best!

  2. Wonderful post. I think you are a wonderful writer. I believe that you will be a published author. Every post is perfectly written and always entertaining. Yes, even the ones about you washing dishes. Just don't give up.

    You always manage to make me smile when I feel like crap. Writers like you are what inspire me to want to be a better writer. You are a very talented woman, please don't ever forget that.

    You are very lucky to have such a wonderful husband. But you already know that. So take care and all of the best.

  3. That is so sweet, and one day Heather one day you will get your wish

  4. Elizabeth - Thanks and I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to make you cry! And you are right, we are all in this together. Thanks for coming by.

    Murees - I'm glad I can make you laugh. That makes me happy. Thank you for your sweet words. I appreciate them.

    Joanna - Thank you. I'll make sure to come back and read your comments when I'm feeling low!

  5. Very sweet. It's nice to see a trbute to the one we love Elizabeth. I did one for my Dad, who passed on this day nine years ago. He also was a veteran. It's wonderful to acknowledge then especially on this day.


  6. What a beautiful post, such a wonderful way to honour your hubby. He sounds pretty special and very supportive! You are a lucky lady. Have a lovely day. ;)

  7. Michael - Thank you and a thank you to your Dad as well. It is important for us to show our gratitude.
