I’m honored to be featured on All things Audrey today. My guest post is entitled, “Living your passion.” Here’s an excerpt.
In a fit of anger I slammed my hand against my desk and shouted, “Can you PLEASE turn down the TV?” The boys jumped and a minute later the movie was no longer blaring. It was, in fact, so quiet I could hear another of my sons shooting zombies on his X-box and my husband on the phone with his mother in another part of the house.
I gave up finishing the blog post I was writing, poured a glass of wine and settled myself into a rain-damp chair on the back patio. I had just started to enjoy a peaceful moment when a car pulled up in front of the barn. My dogs took off after the perceived intruder, barking at full volume all the way down the hill. I held my wine glass in both hands and blinked, trying to stop the tears from falling. Inside the big, beautiful, noisy life I had created, there was no room left for me.
