Last night while I was ill I had this idea to see if I could find my first ex-wife. Oh no shocker, I have been married more that 2 times. So while I was looking for her I found her mother’s obituary. We were very young and dumb kids who should never had tried to play house. In the end that is exactly what we did, for a short time. I really did feel for my ex and her loss of her mother. It is really hard to deal with the losses we experience when it is family or close friends.
I started to noticed that when I dug deeper, she really had taken charge of her life and changed. I was so very happy for her in these changes. I even found myself forgiving the issues of the past and forgiving her. It was a wonderful moment in time when you are able to release the past. I looked at myself and thought gee Ally you have come a long way to be able to forgive.
I looked at her photo and felt something different. I thought to myself for a short time. What I came to was, hoping that she was as happy as her photo suggested. I found out that she had remarried and was working in a stable job. I even think she has a couple of children. Like I said I really do hope that her life has improved. I felt at peace…..
So where is this wisdom I suggest. Well simple, while time does not heal all wounds it does allow us to change. To a point where we are at peace with the scars that remain. This also does not mean you need to be friends with those that hurt you. For that in itself is foolish. But forgiveness while hard is an ability to heal ourselves.
I know that I say this while I have not yet been able to forgive my own flesh-n-blood. But I think in time I might be able to. Though at this moment in time, I am not ready as the wounds are so very real and painful. I hope that someday I will be able to look at them and say, I hope the best for them as well. I want to be able to walk the path of peace when I can forgive them. I think in time it to will come as the same with my ex, just a flash in time. A look at a photo and a happy thought might cross my mind. But only time will tell I guess…..
Looking like it is coming on very quickly. I am so proud of this book. I am really not to sure if I can keep it to 75,000 words but we will see that is the goal. But some times goals are meant to smashed. I am still aiming for a release date to be some where in June.
I still am drawing a big blank for the cover. or at least a black where I can make what I see in my mind. SO the offer is still standing about the art work, the curse of being poor …..

As I promise clues, the clue is in the picture above. I am starting to think of a book cover. If you want to have a go at designing one let me know. I am not rich enough to pay you for it but I will give you credit for it in the book. It might be fun to see what you can come up with. Send me a msg or an email and we can look at the cover information you’ll need to adhere to. But remember the name of the book is “The Choice”.
Btw there were some great guesses on the first clue I gave but no one got the second one. Have a second look at the post and really pay close attention to it. Have fun…..
Well when I last posted I was at 20,000 words. Happy to say after having the kids home for a week I was only able to squeak out a small amount of 5,000 words. Now that it is just me again I am back at time. Excited to say I have the end of the book done as well. This has book has been so hard in writing as I only had a start no middle and no end. Now I have the end and working hard to get the the middle plot. But I will say this much you will love the end. Hmmm maybe time for another clue. I do like this clue game and I hope it will give you a sense of an-Tis-a—PAtion. Good luck with the clue. Hope you can figure it out…..
Wow so exciting, The Choice has reached a new mile stone. 20,000 words is no small feat. Who cares if I have not slept…..Clue time……
