Who Is Your Touchstone?

One of my favorite songs is The Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler; from the movie Beaches. The song depicts the relationship between two woman, Bette Midler and Barbara Hersey, and their undying friendship, love and devotion despite their differences. 

Whenever I hear it on the radio, I think of my husband, John Anthony Marin, my touchstone, my ever positive influencer in my life, the most resilient person I know, who kept me from shrinking into the depth of despair as each sister-in-law left this world because of Huntington’s disease (HD).

John was the wind that supported me as we traveled through turbulent times in our life; he is still my biggest supporter and I would stumble and fall without him.  We now travel together into a smooth, calm breeze of peace and tranquility. 

So I ask you.  Who is the wind beneath your wings?  

My memoir/nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, is available on my author/HD advocate website   & on Amazon, B&N, & in Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iBooks format.

100% of the proceeds from my book sold in the U.S. will be donated to the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA).  Make a donation to help fight HD @ HDSA.
