I'm a very proud mama today

I've been pushing really hard for the past week. I've been on writing deadline and I have to admit I've really struggled with this one. This makes the fifth one this year and I know that another edit is waiting in the wings for me. I'm fortunate to be in this position and I'm fortunate to have such a supportive editor - so I'm not complaining. But I am tired and when I become weary I tend to be more introspective.

I just sent my son off to school. Today's a very big day for him, he's presenting a project to the school that he's been working on for months. I'm more nervous about it than he is. He's put so much into this and learned so much in the process. The task was simple - learn a new skill. Max, in his typical fashion, chose something not so simple - blacksmithing. The shaping of raw metal is as much art form as it is anything else. He has the vision, patience, and creativity. But he also has cerebral palsy which makes doing anything requiring dexterity and strength in both hands a challenge.

I'm happy to report he stuck with it and he had a great time. I SO wish I could be a fly on the wall when he presents today. Thanks to createspace, he was able to put his reflections and some diary entries into a book (along with photos) so he could turn in an actual bound copy. He's called it The Blacksmith's Apprentice

He also created a mini-documentary which I'm sharing below. Take a gander and if you are feeling so inclined, make a comment. I'm a very proud mama today. Link to video:
