Fortune Cookie For You
This morning, I found my Mom's fortune (see picture) sitting on the window sill. My mom and I both have an affinity for windows and sunlight, and when I saw the small white strip of paper sitting there I knew my mom had purposely left this fortune for me. Now, I don't know if a fortune is transferable to a person who didn't actually open the cookie, but I appreciate the sentiment just the same.
My mom is amazing (yes, I know I'm biased). But the thing that amazes me the most about her sometimes is how much understanding she has for my decisions and the way that I chose to live my life. My parents may not completely understand my whole life-long-writing-and-reading addiction, but they know it makes me happy, and that's all that matters. And this was just one her ways to demonstrate her support.
So on that note, I'd like to pass on my fortune to you. Stay true to your dreams. Whether they be about writing or any other endeavor, hope, wish, or dream that you may have. Don't ever never ever never never ever give up. (I hope those extra nevers and evers help make my point clear).
