Life Interrupts

As everyone knows just when things are going good something comes along and sets everything in chaos. Well that’s what happened to me a month ago. My husband ended up in hospital for a week and everything I knew went to hell. Worry over his medical condition became my number one concern. I couldn’t think clearly. but with time and great doctors I can remember what life is again.

I’ve been taking time out to catch up on my reading again and have found I quite enjoy the pastime. I have always been a reader and over the years have read thousands upon thousands of books. And that was before I began writing my own. My taste in reading has always been eclectic and I enjoy a well written story. If it makes sense I will enjoy it but what is a well written story?

I am a simple person and as long as the story makes me want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next, that to me is a well written story. It has to make sense otherwise it’s just words on paper. I read some stories that make no sense and I feel as if the writer has done nothing, but then I’ve read stories that make me want to read them again and I much prefer the ones I will read again and again.

Life is back to normal in my house again and I can’t wait to get back to writing. Life is very good at the moment! so I’m going to sit back and enjoy!

  1. I hope your husband is on the mend and life can soon be back to normal for you. In 2011 I had three surgeries and it disrupted the lives of many people around me for several months. As “the patient,” I was tremendously grateful for the love demonstrated to me by my loved ones; and I know your husband feels the same way. Now, three-and-a-half years later, much of what I went through seem quite funny. For instance, standing in my hospital room after (unexpected) surgery #3, my wife got a call on her cell phone. Almost instantly she turned her head toward me and said, “Do you have your laptop? Are you sending out emails?” She confiscated my computer and kept it until I was off my morphine pump. I hope, going forward, there will be much joy and relief for you all as well.

  2. Glad to hear your chaos is over now, and I hope your husband continues to mend. Reading is certainly a good way for you to relax and mend, too. Best wishes to you both.

  3. So glad things are getting back to normal . Enjoy your reading and writing
