Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!
What is wacky about this Wednesday, you might ask?
It’s where the characters from my books take over my blog and social media accounts so you can get to know them. Happening every Wednesday until launch day (I think…they’re my characters but I don’t control them.)
My Side of the Story
Table of Contents
I suppose it’s my time to tell my story, but I honestly don’t know where to start. It all began the summer when Mom and I visited Aunt Debbie. Up to that point, I’d never met her.
So we showed up at Aunt Debbie’s house, and I thought she was going to faint. Those two months have some of my fondest memories with my mother. And Then one morning I woke up and she was gone.
My mom left me with this woman who was virtually a stranger. No note. Nothing.
In all the years since I’d been with Aunt Debbie, there was no contact from my mother. She didn’t visit. Never called.
I’d have been content with a postcard. But there was nothing.
I May Have Embarrassed Myself
By the time I got to high school, I was determined to avoid all romantic entanglements.
Until I saw him.
I’m not sure when I became fixated on Daniel Hutchinson or why.
He’s not my type. For years, I threw myself at him. Poor guy. I completely embarrassed him. And myself.
I wish I could say I came to my senses and realized Daniel wasn’t the guy for me, but that’s not what happened.
He fell in love with a woman who was my complete opposite.
And I hated her.
I quit all my positions in the church. Walked away from the church. Cut off anyone who tried to reach out to me.
Basically, I acted like a spoilt child.
For two years.
Then I got sick. At the time, I thought it was the worst thing that ever happened to me. That God was out to get me.
Turns out God was slowing me down so He could speak to my heart.
I think we forget how much God wants to have a relationship with us. Or the lengths He’ll go to get our attention.
I can finally say I know what true love feels like and it’s nothing like what I thought it was. It’s so much deeper and richer and purer.
Let’s hope I haven’t blown it before I get the chance to be with a guy who loves me as much as I love him.
