The other day I managed to get all my kids down for naps at the same time. It was wonderful. So I sat down on my couch and began to work on my wip.
Five minutes later the phone rang. It was my mom, who loves to chat. She asked what I was doing and I said, writing.
She said, "I'll let you go so you can get your writing done."
And we hung up.
It was an amazing moment. I've heard others say how difficult it is to carve out a writing time and have people respect it. And yes, there are people in my family who don't understand the need for aloneness.
But my mom totally blew me away. In that moment I felt incredibly blessed to have such a supportive, thoughtful family member.
Anything like this happen to you lately?
