Mothers Fighting for Others Banner

Sorry, Jeff.  No disrespect intended at all.  But that’s how I felt when your wife Rocky thought something I wrote was good enough for her Mothers Fighting For Others blog. 

I will admit that I don’t feel worthy to be there.  I mean, take a look at their writers page!  It starts with Rocky Turner and Julie Ferenzi, the founders of the site.  (You might know them both as AR members – and if you don’t, you should.)  

But look through the rest of them!  I don’t know them yet, but they are survivors, authors, activists, heroes – they are all changing the world!  Keep scrolling, and down there at the bottom is little old me.  Perhaps I’m comic relief.  ;o)  I tell myself at least I can be the “mother” part, and maybe the others are the “fighters”. 

But I bet the more I read, the more I’ll get riled up.  It usually doesn’t take much, and if you mess with someone who can’t stand up for themselves I’ll want to step in.  I expect that the more I learn, the more I’ll want to change the world myself.  I’m going to pay attention and see how I change as I go along.  I think I’m about to build a better me.

Rocky, thank you for this opportunity.

Sarah, I am working on ways I can get involved with Rocky and this wonderful organization.  We are supposed to talk today and I am so excited to learn more.  It is truly an amazing group of women and a great cause.  Do you want to go to Africa with me if I go sometime?  Thanks for bringing this to AR!

Diane - YAY!!!!  We could talk about Africa.  My husband would have a fit -- I'd come home with a kid!!!!

John - Please do!!!  It's pretty amazing over there!

Bob - I worry about being off topic over there!  Here -- eh, who cares?  There are 50,000 other people to carry the load.  But there?  I'm the Lone Goof.  Shame on me.  (MWA!!!)

Chris - You have more faith in me than I do, I'm not so sure I'm perfect for the job!  But I'll try to become a little closer to perfect as I go along.

Comic Relief?? Well maybe, but  anyone who has read your posts, knows that you are a very thoughtful,   caring person, and ready to stand up for someone that needs a little help. 

I just went to MFFO, and read some of the articles there. I'm sure that site is going to grow in popularity, and you will be a welcome addition to the group of Writers already there.

Good Luck on this new adventure.  :o)

Darn you, Sarah.  I'm tired, bleary-eyed, and was looking to place a few cheap comments for a few extra points - you know the ones that push you beyond an imaginary threshold or maintains a distance ahead or behind your fellow in-state bloggers.  (Well, maybe you don't know , because you have 3 zillion points or so.)

Well, anyway, I see you found a a niche with a portion of your apparent life formula - a cause that has lofty goals and a small presence - a place where you, your blogging, and your cause can grow together...

Congratulations.  They're in even better company now.
