The My Castle Heart blog charts Angela’s journey as a writer, mom, and purpose seeker in the wake of losing her cherished mother-in-law and the grandma she always wanted—right at the moment she stepped into motherhood.
Angela was inspired to take the lessons she learned from these two enterprising women to inspire herself, other writers, and her own kids to seize the day and follow that dream perched on the high hill of your heart.
This blog is not a place to bemoan and regret. It is a place to celebrate all the wonderful ways that lives well lived may continue to inspire hope and action. It is a place to celebrate and experience life, arms wide open, just as Sue and Shirley did.
As the song from Sue’s favorite musical “Wicked” goes:
“You’ll be with me,
Like a handprint on my heart.
Now whatever way our stories may end,
I know you have rewritten mine.
“Because I knew you,
I have been changed for good.”
