    Lexi who writes Hooked On Espresso nominated me for a Perfect Post award for this post that I wrote last month.  I wouldn’t even mention it but Marlboro Man is making me. Oh wait. That’s not right.  No, I’m mentioning it because I am thrilled and I am honored. Thank you so much Lexi. 

    The Original Perfect Post Awards – Jan 08

    You can find the other January nominees here.

      That is such a beautiful post. Reading it again, you have, once again, made me cry at work.

      Congratulations! I’m a relatively new reader and hadn’t read that post before. It was beautiful. Very eloquent. Thanks for sharing such an intimate moment of your life with us.

      I’m still chuckling. Marlboro Man. Very funny.

    20. Renna says:

      I agree, that was a perfect post. I think “When a Box is not a box” was also a perfect post, but then I already commented on it.

      I’m cracking up at the Malboro Man comment. ;-Þ

      I looooved that post. Also, I just read “She Doesn’t Know”, and let’s just say…”she needs a tissue”.

      Blessings and congrats on the award nomination.

      Isn’t it weird that we all know who MM is??!

    25. Kiy says:

      I loved that post also, and yes, it is funny how we all know who MM is. In fact, when I read that, the first thing that popped into my head was Pioneer Woman!

      The MM comment cracked me up. . .I was thinking I’d clicked on the wrong site for a moment. . .

      I couldn’t respond to that post because it made me cry, because you’d written something that I thought I alone had thought. So far, and this is saying a lot, if I were going to be responsible for picking your entrance application essay for heaven, I think it would have to be that post.

      Well, you had me crying at the photo. No wonder you were nominated for that one. Your way with words is superb, and when we actually speak of that which is real . . . . I’m so sad because it made me think of my boy, 13, who wants to hold my hand when he’s not shoving me away. It’s hard for a boy to grow up, harder than for girls, I think (and I have three.) I’m also thinking of my mom who is again lying in a hospital bed, uncertain of her future. As her daughter, I hold her hand, but I am so unsure too. It makes me sad.~~Dee

      Well deserved award! I sat here in tears reading … then, before I could post a comment I had to walk to the other end of the house to check on my five babies …

      Please do the world a favor … never quit writing!!!
