A Frog and a Gratitude List of Sorts
O.K., in all seriousness, I am going somewhere with this and it does have some relationship to this amusing frog. I would not be able to blog at all were it not for the patient help of my father and husband who help me with all things technical, in regard to which I am totally out of my depth. I have lovely real-life friends like Kimberly and Hope and Lorien, and many more who I have not named, who read me and say supportive things. I have a mother who blogs as well and allows me to occupy a sort of mentor role despite hardly knowing what I am doing myself. I have kids that let me take their pictures and write about them, within limits. I have people who, for whatever reason, read me again and again and leave comments, which allows me to feel as if I have real interactions with adults.
For all of that, let me say a profound thank you to the Universe.
This week, I am most especially grateful for my friend Suzanne. I think I can call her a friend. We have never met in real life. I am not sure that I would actually even recognize her in real life. But we have exchanged the kind of frank and personal emails that only two friends can exchange, and so I say we are friends. Suzanne is a really talented writer. The Blogosphere is like this dizzying space filled with countless stars. So many stars you will never identify them all, never get near them. Stars and stars and stars. Among them, Suzanne is Venus. She has range. She can do snark. She can do deep. She can make you laugh, or just wonder. I have never seen her put up a post that looked like filler. Her writing is spot-on. And, for some unknown reason, our admiration is mutual.
We are exchanging pulpits, as ministers do, on February 29th for what is being called Leap Blog Day. That is why this frog is on my blog today.
Make sure you come read Wednesday. You are in for a treat.
