I suppose my mother was right ( I can hear her joyful laugh and her clap of exclamation all the way from Heaven), when she used to say to me "Mimi, why on earth do you always have to learn things the hard way, when here I've been pointing you in the RIGHT direction all along?!"
I often wonder, if I had taken her advice along the way, if my path may have been easier - more cushy - with all the creature comforts that we all seem to strive for, but never finish trying to obtain?
The answer to that will never be known, but hey, I'm not complaining! I believe the lessons that I have learned, the characters that have filled my pages - the sadness, the grief, the joy and excitement, the boredom, the desperation, have all been an essential part of my journey, my book, my excellent adventure :)
