I pride myself on being able to do several different things and as time goes on and with more practice, I’m becoming better at doing those things. In fact, many of these things I am referring to have been late discoveries. I don’t know if they were somewhere lurking wanting to come out or just came on board as time went by. It really doesn’t matter because here I am now at 56 years young having so many opportunities to do all the things I never imagined doing. My added joy is that I don’t have to do them alone, I have a wonderful husband who is my soulmate and it’s so very nice to be able to have someone who you can share not only your life with but those several things you truly enjoy doing.
I have already mentioned my love for sketching and drawing in several blogs prior. I will talk about my writing and being an author a little later because I’m actually working on writing an article now and plan on having it finished shortly. I’ll go into later our Company, Diablotin Television Ltd, that we incorporated together based on a vision my husband had that I immediately saw and loved. Not to mention Open University and our studies, or our gardening, etc. But today, I want to talk about another joy that I’m becoming better at day by day and that is with my music and singing. You see both my husband and I feel God put us together for a special reason and we feel our lives are just beginning…
In the midst of it all I have to tell you that it has been my husband who has brought the best of me out. I think in all honesty we motivate one another. Whatever I start, he finishes or vice versa. Can you see why I am so very content now at 56 years young and married? Maybe, because I have been there, done that in a sense. I have been foot loose and fancy free single all my life for nearly 50 years and so had my husband, so when we both came together, our life now just makes nice music together.
Even in my sketching, I just began to doodle using his basic 17 piece sketch & drawing set. He and I actually met through our publisher when we both were getting our books published and since then we are actively collaborating and working on several other books. I just read another message from a wonderful lady who I admire so very much and she called her husband a ‘hero!’ Her message was supported by a wonderful storyline involving her family life and basically how very much she admired her husband for his actions. It got me to thinking as I could relate entirely on all she said. You see my husband is ‘ my hero too!’
I am not one of those lonely heart women who I see on facebook and other social networking sites looking for love and affection from others. It just brought the biggest smile that I still have reading and feeling this young lady talk about her husband so nicely. I felt her love and happiness then as I do in all her messages.
I will end here for now with a song, I dedicated to my husband titled,‘IT’S SO REAL’ I ‘m proud to have written the lyrics and you will hear my vocals as well as my husband playing the music and arranged it all. Yes, you see we are songwriters as well and if you listen to the player you will hear our over 102 songs song by the two of us ,as we call ourselves, Albert and Tempie and THE WINNING TEAM BAND. All of our works are our originals . Most of the poems and prose were written over twenty years ago by my husband and we are now singing and putting them to music together.
Our collaborated book, THEY BECAME A TEAM, tells about our Life, Our Journey, Our Marriage… My first song I wrote and played the keyboard (my husband taught me) is in our playlist of 102 songs titled, ‘THEY BECAME A TEAM.‘
