Guest blogger: Cora speaks


Oh, for goodness sakes! Kathleen asked me to write a post tonight because she's too embarrassed to do it herself.

She wishes to thank two bloggers who gave her a shout out in the past week. I told her a simple thank you would do, but she's given to effervescence sometimes, and this is one of those times.

I truly don't understand her reluctance to speak for herself sometimes. Charlotte and I have been teaching her to bark and howl but she's devolving into a dog rather slowly these days and needs quite a bit more training. Once her knees are mended and she's on the trail again, we're pretty sure she'll come along nicely.

At any rate, after listening to her blather on and on this evening, I suggested she might like to go to bed. She agreed if I agreed to be a guest blogger. 

She's been an erratic blog visitor of late -- something to do with keeping very busy because of a pandemic -- but she didn't want more time to pass before she expressed her gratitude.

She mentioned Joycee of Granny Mountain and a kind and heart-felt tribute.

Cora! She likened my little blog on the prairie and 3 others to a yummy bowl of cereal, a food  "that warms you and stays with you." I wish I'd thought of those words, because they certainly apply to her beautiful blog. I'm so grateful I discovered Joycee and her creativity!
 
And she also talked about Jen of Jennifer on the Verge.

Cora! Jen called three posts I'd written about loneliness and solitude "beautiful." Can you believe it? Several years ago, Jen walked with me through some dark times, generously sharing her insight and kindness. Talk about beautiful! She is one class act with such original ideas and so many funny and tender things to say.

Kathleen really hopes you pay a visit to these bloggers. She wants you to "catch a glimpse of their lovely spirits shining through." 

And now, by your leave, I'm going to retire to the boudoir and get some beauty sleep. 

Good night, all. Sweet dreams.

Hi Cora,

Your pleasant, kind but down-to-earth words will be appreciated by all, I'm sure. And Kathleen is better off getting a good night's sleep!

Well Miss Cora, your Mommy deserves all the praise that is heaped upon her! We get lots of inspiration from her posts and I learn something everytime I come here, like...I didn't know dogs could type!
