Writers Are Brave People

A few weeks ago, when I accepted an invitation to be a guest on Bobbye Terry's blog, Mystery Happens, I had no idea what a strong and brave woman Bobbye Terry is. Early Thanksgiving morning, Bobbye lost her beloved husband of 25 years. She discovered him lying on their kitchen floor--a shocking and unexpected loss. Bobbye has handled all of this trauma with a grace that I cannot imagine. Even her writing support group is far away from her--six hours drive from her Texas home.

I did not expect Bobbye to want to follow up on her schedule, but she is continuing with it. The Internet is a great support and draws new friends together. Bobbye strengthens my belief that writers are brave people!

Please visit her blog site. Below my post you can read her tribute to her husband, Ted.

Living through loss is the bravest thing we humans can ever expect to do. Your friend is truly a brave woman.

It's amazing the strength some folks have when faced with such a shocking sudden loss. I'm sending warm and loving thoughts to Bobbye from Colorado.

That's terrible! But it's good that she took her strength from her online friends.
