Quote of the Day: I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
The Blogging from A to Z challenge in April is a marathon. I proudly display the Survivor’s Badge on the right. Congrats to any other bloggers out there, reading this, who have also completed the race. You are a rock star. You have what it takes to be a successful artist. You have the ability to Go, Create, and Inspire!
I loved the challenge this year. I looked forward to writing each post, and it’s all because of Millie and Willie Cottonpoly, my sock puppet creation!
Willie: (stares longingly at the cake pictures, starting to hum I’ve been working on the railroad.)
Millie: (nudges Willie in the heel) It was kind of you to let us share our stories on your blog, Mary.
Mary: I loved every word. A couple favorites are A, the story of how you met, and L, for the Love Letter that you wrote to Millie, and of course, when Willie encouraged you to write your memoirs, Millie. I think they’d be so fascinating to read.
Millie: (making flustered noises) Oh, I don’t know.
Willie: Millie, your story is inspirational. You can’t hide it under a bushel. What if your story helped someone else, or helped out a dog who just needs some understanding and a good dog whisperer?
Millie: Well, when you put it that way.
Mary: You need to set aside time every day to write.
(Millie and Willie look pointedly at Mary.)
Um, yay, I need to follow my own advice there, don’t I?
Millie: We know you have a great creative spirit, Mary. You made us!
Mary: (nodding as she wipes away a tear) I think we’ll have a long relationship.
(hugs all around)
Willie: Now, where’s that cake?
