I don't do this very often, but I'd like to mention a blogger that I've been reading for only a short while and whom I have found is not only a great writer but a friendly, sensible, funny, and highly courageous lady. I mentioned her blog, Life's Funny LikeThat, in an entry recently and would like to make a direct request that you check her out if you don't already read her. Even if you don't continue to read her, you should read the recent posts she has made entitled The Hiding Place, Different, Waaaaait a Dang Minute Here, Statistics, and Regrets. So many times when I read one of her entries I will think to myself "Oh so-and-so would really like that entry (or appreciate that entry), or that sounds like so-and-so." (Insert your own name there!) She has her regular job but also writes for the Times Observer out of Warren, Pennsylvania, including this column, Living With The Curse, dated April 4, 2009.
