One Sister's Journey...
My parents were my greatest cheerleaders, always encouraging myself, and Heidi, to be and do whatever we wanted to do. As a child, I was always doodling and "writing" stories. My mom saved one of these masterpieces, from age 4 or 5.
I labeled the picture and formulated "sentences". My Mom told me when I looked through my baby book as a teen, "you were always writing and telling the best stories, I had to save at least one."
To be an author was my dream. Dad encouraged me yet told me to make sure I "got a real job to pay the bills." My first grade teacher, Mrs. Emerson, on the other hand, she said, "You are a good writer, one day you'll be an author." I think it's the balance of my Dad's practical side, my Mom's dreamer side, and Mrs. Emerson's, reach for the stars mentality that molded me into the person, and author, I am today.
No one ever said, "You can't" or "You won't", instead they promoted the go-getter and dreamer with a touch of reality tossed into the mix. I'm grateful for my parents and the teachers who teamed up to make me into the writer and author I am.
