It's time for another A to Z Challenge! This year, I want to tell you about a story that is currently a WIP (work in progress). It's the story I'm writing in honor of my baby lovebird, Robert. It's a fantasy story, but it's really a story about emotional healing. So let's examine it by going through the alphabet!
The letter m is for miracles!
The real Robert performed miracles, whether he knew it or not. He survived an "unpleasant encounter" with a dog that should have killed him. But it didn't. He came back stronger than ever.
Though developmentally slower than his siblings because of the brain damage suffered as a result of said encounter, he always ate well, he pushed himself to learn to climb and perch. Every day, he did a little more. Every little thing he did was a miracle.
The fictitious Robert is a miracle worker as well. He reminds Emmalee of her past. He shows her wonderful things in the magic of Locreya, as well as in his wisdom. He teaches her emotional healing.
He might have been a small bird, but he did some spectacular things in his all too brief life. Robert created miracles because he was a miracle.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow. We are wrapping up the week with the letter n. See you then!
