Today is a happy day but it would have been happier if John were physically here.
John was always my biggest cheerleader.
He was proud of me when I sometimes had trouble being proud of myself.
When I published my first book, I don't know who was more excited to open the box of books - me or him.
Well, today, my book #4 is published. It's dedicated to John. All of my books are.
But I sure wish he was here to give me a hug and a kiss.
That would have made today perfect.
But I know he is with me.
So, I will go forth. I will have that glass of bubbly to celebrate and know that he is smiling.
And in my heart I know that he is saying the words he always said - "I'm so proud of you." ♥
