My Pick for Time's Person of the Year
....is totally Y'ALL!! You know how sometimes you feel illogically and unreasonably peaceful? Especially on a day that you should be popping Xanax and washing it down with a gin and tonic? Yeah, that's how I felt Monday. Calm. At peace. I mean, don't get me wrong...I'd see a baby or a pregnant woman and seize up for about .7 seconds. But really, in the grand scheme of things, that is a HUGE step forward. Do I expect it to be all daisy picking and frolicking in the field from here on out? Uh, no. I'm a realist...if not a glass half-empty kinda girl. But I felt your thoughts and your prayers (and actually continue to feel them) and that has been the difference between me laying in the bed watching Olympic coverage all day and actually getting in this zippy little Mustang the rental agency gave me and exploring Phoenix. The power of prayer is awesome and often understated. So...to my readers, my prayer warriors, my kind thought queens: you are the wind beneath my wings. You better click out of here now before I start singing The Rose...which is bound to happen. Next up: Kiera of Imperfect Daisies (speaking of which) with a lovely little public service announcement for a delish little coffee joint (or so I've heard. We Kentuckians don't get this creature comfort). Kiera writes exactly as she speaks (or so I imagine) and really it makes for the most entertaining reading. You can almost turn to her and comment back...she's like right there...in your office (or your living room, or sitting on the toilet...wherever you do your best blogging). She has graciously agreed to give me a little guest post so that I can do some gemstone shopping in the city that is home to a place called Bead World. If I leave now, I can be there about 15 minutes before they open so that I can get the full 8 hours. Enjoy Kiera and leave her some love!
