Blog-tember daily posts challenge - September 1st - My Landing Pattern

So have any of you seen this challenge on Brave Love? It just looked interesting to me and I thought I would join in to help my blog and myself grow more into blogging. Actually, this is just the challenge I think I'm up for! Feel free to join in if you have a blog yourself or to follow other favorite blogs as we vow to blog everyday on these topics.

I'm a little behind, but here is the topic for September 1st: Imagine the front sleeve of a hard cover novel. Give us your "About the Author" so we can get to know one another, and for fun tell us what your imaginary novel would be about.

When I was a little girl, I always imagined what it would be like to fly a plane. I drew airplanes for a while and even glued together model airplanes. Then in the sixth grade, I received a VHS in the mail. Not just any VHS tape, but it was my cousin on his first flight! I burned with jealously, but knew my parents could never afford this type of adventure for me.

On my twenty first birthday I surprised myself with my first flight in a Cessna at my local airport. Little did I know that I would soon land a well paying job after college that allowed me to fly a Piper Cherokee for the next three years. However, right before obtaining my private pilot licence, September 11, 2001 happened and I decided to join the navy to fly.

After weeks of long hard hours, I was discharged from Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida due to anemia. Coming home disappointed, discouraged and broke, I moved into a home with my parents near the airport I once flew at for three years. I would walk in my neighborhood and look up at the planes in the runway pattern. Little did I know that in that pattern would be my parents new home, my church where my future husband was leading music and our first house.

The novel would be called: My Landing Pattern.
