project 365 - day 52

thankful for writing time

today because of the president's day holiday, my husband gave me the incredible gift of 5 hours of uniterrupted writing time at starbucks. i am so thankful for this time! i took about 2 months off from writing my book around the holidays and matthew's birthday because i was just too emotional. but now i'm in full-on writing mode. however, my child only naps 30 minutes in the morning and maybe 45 minutes to an hour in the afternoon so that doesn't leave much time for writing since i have household chores, bible study, and a shower to take in that time. 

i am so thankful that God has given me the words to write the stories of our precious son, matthew phillip; ken's brother phillip raymond, and our best friend matthew seth. it is a difficult story to write, but one i feel like needs to be told. i have no idea if this book is for me and a few others to read so we can all see how God has connected the dots and is faithful in His provision or if it will actually be published. God said write so i'm doing it.

today i'm thankful to a husband who had our boat and several household projects to work on, who unselfishly gave up his day off so i could go and write. i love you sweetheart!
