Today is one of those days where I feel an immense gratitude for the life I have been given. I can't even express how much I love being a part of the author network in Utah and the surrounding states. And it's even better to know I have the full support and backing of not only my immediate family, but also my extended family.
I left the house just after 6 am today to drive out to UVU in Orem for Book Academy. My husband, who worked yesterday from 1:30pm until today at 4:00am, came home, slept for an hour, and then got up to be me for the day. So while I was off playing with other writers, he got the kids up, took them to school, took care of the 3 kids I babysit, picked up our kids from school, got dinner cooked--and made sure everyone did their homework and chores. You can't have him--he's MINE. ;)
This, to me, is a physical representation of the faith he has in me and a clear demonstration that he has my back. It's like magic, but better, 'cause it's real.
I got to spend a day worry free, thanks to my husband and kids. And I had a blast. Book Academy is one of the very best conferences I attend!
