I am that person that most of you despise. I'm the one that always shows up late.
I've spent my entire life being late to just about everything. I was born late (ten days overdue), I was frequently late to school, late for the bus, late to my own graduation ceremony, late to work, late to give birth, late to church, and will probably someday be a doddering old woman refusing to die and thereby will be late for my own funeral.
See? You despise me, don't you.
And because blogging is just another extention of who I really am, it's no surprise that I'm frequently late here, too.
This time, though, it's downright embarassing. I was recognized on 5 Minutes for Mom for being a loyal commenter...a week ago.
I am so flattered and humbled, it leaves me just about speechless. It's like having the homecoming queen stop by your locker and say, "I like what you did with your hair today." It's the sort of thing that does not happen to me. And yet, it did. There I am, with my blog being described as "fun, bright and a great place to visit for encouragement and maybe a few laughs."
Thank you, 5 Minutes for Mom, for recognizing me as a Loyal Commenter. I will, indeed, wear the badge with pride. And I will continue to visit and leave comments for others, just as I will always respond and/or reciprocate to comments left here.
Just please forgive me if I'm a little late doing it.
