February has long been celebrated as a month of romance so all my blogs this month will be about love and romance. History of Valentines Day
I’m truly a romantic at heart and I was lucky to find, marry and have a life with my soulmate, John Marin; the love of my life. Although, there was a time in our relationship when I walked away from him, my mind was screaming,” If I fall behind, wait for me”.
John did just that; he waited, gave me space and time and I eventually found my way back to him. Even though Huntington’s disease (HD) dominated our lives for over 30 years, created a lot of worry, stress and grief, I would do it all over again. Love is our bond, a sacred, deep trust in each other.
Remember, the key to be lucky in love is when you let the other person’s desires ride as high in importance as what you want (and your partner does the same), you both feel loved and lucky and supported. It is my wish to my fellowman and woman, that when you find true love, keep it close and never take it for granted.
To read John and my love story while living in the shadow of Huntington’s disease, look for my nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family at Risk for Huntington’s on many book websites. It’s in kindle format, ebook, and hard copy. amazonWatching-Their-Dance thriftbooks.com/watching-their-dance
