Last post I questioned whether I should write or not. I decided that I would keep writing until I didn't want to anymore. And that happens. I go in waves. I'll go weeks or months and just write, write, write. Then I'll go months without an idea. Or I'll decide to work on another project. Then I go back to writing. It's all fine and good. So, for now, I'll write until something else catches my attention.
I was feeling rather down, though, about my writing. It's not the greatest literature out there, but it's not so bad either. I've definitely read worse..... but today I got a bit of a boost.
At church, one of the ladies approached me and told me that her book club wants to read my book for next month's meeting and would I come to their meeting and talk. REALLY?? Be a guest speaker at a book club? Awesome! OK, she told me there are only 4 or so ladies in the book club, but still.... it's cool. I was flabbergasted. She told me she had just finished reading it last week and she thought it was a cute book. That was certainly a boost I really needed. It made me feel happy.
It's not easy being a mom. Ninety nine percent of what we do goes completely unnoticed and unappreciated. I have felt that I (that Molly) has almost ceased to exist. Everything about who I am has been put on hold to raise kids and it might never resurface because it's been tucked away so long while. We (I) need those little compliments once in a while. Today I got a compliment for being Molly and it felt good.
