I've caught the last two award shows on T.V. (AMAs and Oscars) this year, and anyone whose seen them or any other award ceremony has heard a recipient thank specific people for their help and support. It is specially touching when a spouse is acknowledged..
Well to my surprise I got my own acknowledgement. You see, my honey was asked to collaborate on the writing of a wargame last year and it was finally published last month. I have been so very proud of my honey. He has been talking about wanting to one day write a book and things worked out that he was able to write about a subject he enjoys.
This weekend he was finally able to show me on the hard copy of the book that he mentioned me in the acknowledments, and I was truly moved. I did nothing but encourage him to enjoy his free time doing what he likes. So the writing may only be a wargame and not Nobel prize-worthy, but his thanks made a knot in my throat.
I hope (my love) this is a stepping stone to a bigger dream!
