Last Christmas my husband delivered a loving tribute (he is a natural orator, the man can recite Mary Had a Little Lamb and bring you to your feet with applause) and gifted me with an iPad and keyboard to dedicate specifically to my writing. He’d always been supportive and encouraged me, yet there were times I wasn’t sure he fully understood me as a writer. But on that day, in that moment, I knew he got it.
Treasure those who get it. Those who support you, who put up with your quirks and embrace your awkwardness, who give you space to be and space to create. Let them know you appreciate them. When you find your people, hold on to them, love them and reciprocate all the goodness you receive.
