Feed me............

Today I'm meeting a lady for lunch.

She is the founder of a charity that does makeovers at battered women's shelters.

And not just in Michigan.

I learned of her and her noble cause from a co-worker.

I visited her website and clicked around a bit.

I was impressed.

You would be too.

I saw a flashing, colorful tab.

I tried to ignore it.

To look the other way.

Then the tab spoke to me,

asking the question,

"How can you help?"

Uh-oh, I thought to myself.


So I clicked off the site.

And then I clicked back on the site.

And tried not to look at that tab.


"hey you" it called.

What is it with me and stuff?

Like charities.

I hear them calling to me, at first they whisper..then they roar.



I don't have time for much else in my life...

My rational self knows this.

But I pride myself on my good manners...and it is after all speaking to me.

I can't ignore it.

They want a freelance writer to write their stories.

I like to write stories.

So I'm meeting her for lunch to see what kind of stories she's interested in.

The saying "biting off more than I can chew" comes to mind....

So does this quote...

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest. ~J.G. Holland

Wish me luck.

And a good strong jaw.

  1. You are such a talented writer, they will be blessed to have you. Open wide- you'll do great!! :0)

  2. Thank you dear kim J. I appreciate that you come see me and comment. xoxo


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
