I just read this great post from fellow author Leah Braemel and found myself appreciating what she spoke about–her super-supportive husband who’s been with her throughout her writing journey.

While I read it, I thought how nice it was to have a supportive husband like that.

It’s not easy to get support like that from your partner when you write. Writing is a very solitary job. It’s still important for you, as a writer, to be able to go into the office, the closet, where ever and work for a while, without issues.

 I am lucky enough that I have a husband who’s just as super-supportive. Hubby will re-tweet my posts, like, comment, and share anything I put promoting my books on social media.

He’s been known to say “Honey, I’ve got the kids. Go write.” (He would do this a lot, especially when the kids were littler. Now that the kids are a little older, they know how to entertain themselves if Mommy goes into her office to work for a while.)

Now, he goes to the store for me when I have a house to-do list that is making me nuts, on top of writing work, or will do anything I need to get done, in order to give me more writing time. (Like laundry, dishes, and feeding the kiddos.)

More than once, he’s been my rock, when I’ve been ready to throw in the towel, to give up all together on writing, and remind me that I have to do this. I can’t quit, even when it looks like the world’s against me accomplishing anything.

His undying faith in my writing has never wavered. Not once in fifteen years of marriage.

I don’t know what I’d do without him. I sure as hell wouldn’t be able to write like I do.

People talk about big, romantic gestures that guys do–hell, I write about them all the time in my books. But sometimes, it’s the little things that make my heart melt more than any large, grand gesture.

Because my husband going to the store, or just taking something off my always-mile-long to-do list, is one of the most romantic things he could do for me. Because he wasn’t asked to do it, he just does it.

Because he loves me.

Thank you Hubby. I love you. For everything.
