day 175: my brilliant beautiful friend

I listened to a wonderful talk by a close soul sister tonight.  I call her my soul sister not because my soul is even close to the depth of hers, but because hers touches mine.  

She thinks in ways that are sweet, but not overly simple.  

She thinks in ways that are plain, but not puerile.

I pulled her aside afterwards and asked her (begged, really, as I held her arm and told her how wonderful she is) if she would please-oh-please consider blogging.

She is a thinker and a reader, and an artist, and an overall peach.

I may be sending her your blog addresses because I told her how many people I have connected with online that have inspired me to be a better person.

Love that lady. I was touched last night too. I've never heard her speak and NOT been left feeling like I was lead down an amazing and life changing journey. I wish I had been taking more than mental notes because what she had to say was so densely packed with gems.

I hope she takes you up on the blogging suggestion because I agree 100%. She would be great.

The blogs of my sisters around the world have dramatically changed my life for the better. What a blessing!

I'd love to read from whoever you're talking about. That reminds me that I need to be less whiny on my blog and take myself a little more seriously (in a POSITIVE way) once in a while. Pregnancy makes me act like a whiny kid again and my readers could use a bit more uplifting. ;)
