The release of the novel Saving Sam by J.L. Campbell has been timed to coincide with National Heroes’ Day celebrations in Jamaica. Sam, the protagonist finds a hero—or heroine if you like—in his aunt and the mission of this blogfest is to write a maximum of 300 words about someone who has been a source of inspiration. So, Who’s Your Hero?
As soon as I saw this blogfest, I knew who I would pick - my husband, Craig. And I feel really bad anytime I hear an author say he or she doesn't have the support of the spouse. That's your best friend - that person should be the most supportive.
He’s always seen more in me than I see in myself and he leads our family by example. Craig has always supported me in my ventures, from photography to writing - even my roller coaster obsession. (He waits at the exit for me and holds my drink - LOL!) He doesn’t always understand my choices, but he allows me to plow forward.
Craig let me step away from a J-O-B I didn’t like 14 years ago to become fully self-employed. He helps me whenever he can, and often when he doesn’t want to. He’s driven me to seminars and wandered malls for hours while I did book signings. He tells me he admires my drive and desire to do better and learn more.
He’s the spiritual leader in our house and handles all of the expenses when they don’t pertain to my businesses. Not worrying about money has been a tremendous blessing to me. I joke that he is Mr. Safety, but he is my reality check, as I am prone to jump without a lot of thought.
My husband is my hero!
Who else would spend over a week making me a Despicable Me Minion pumpkin?
