Blog conundrums

on January 12, 2012

Husband loves the blog because he has always been proud of anything I’ve written (even though, like Son, he doesn’t like reading!)

From time to time, I have shown Husband various posts in which his health situation has taken precedence over the topic of birds and he has been fascinated to see himself, pictured and written about. I was so worried that he would object to his/our story being made so public but, as we have always been very honest with each other, I felt I needed his permission to continue.

He gave this permission unreservedly, we wept together about a couple of the sad stories and he hugged me. “Keep writing, Jules. This is good.”

  1. And this is how we do it, how we get just a little beyond our circumstances, and then our circumstances cannot consume us. God bless you and your family.

    That’s very reassuring to know Julie and I think your story, while it’s perhaps cathartic to write about and to share the journey, it is is also something everyone sharing the human experience can relate to. Therefore it can also be useful and helpful for other people in trying to make sense of their own journey.

    You have a very special man there. I was touched that he said “Keep writing, Jules. This is good.” Many men would not be as willing to have their lives in the public arena of the internet. Those simple words spoke volumes about his love for you.

  6. What a lovely, brave and generous man is Husband. You are lucky!

  7. Meant to say – you are blessed.
