Last month, I forgot to post here in the pond. I didn’t think about it a couple days beforehand and then forgot. I didn’t have something I was working on but then became overwhelmed with real-life things and ran out of time. I completely blanked. My monthly slot was nowhere on my radar and that’s saying something because Kerri Mermaid sends us weekly reminders when it’s our turn. That’s a weird feeling to not have a conscious thought about something you normally do as routine and put a lot of thought into. Since then, I can’t stop thinking about my fishy sisters and this pond and you, our friends. Maybe I’ve got a serious case of absence making the heart grow fonder now that I’m over here on the opposite coast, but I thought I’d share this today.

But I can, so here are my fishy sisters, in a word…

Also, Shirley Temples, CP, Jen Bock rocking our socks, Fake Tina Fey, Sweet One (puke), kray kray, and MY FRIEND! Did I mention HERO? 😉
Sweet One puke is one of my favorite Kerri-isms of all time. <3
You sure do know how to bring it (wiping tears) – too sweet, and you’re the best smile on the best day of the best year … you know, you:)…thanks Carlene, needed this today:)!
Well then I’m glad I posted this. Did you know I’ll also never forget the first time I saw you in 2010? We were sitting in the WRW Retreat holding area waiting for our turn to go pitch and I was so nervous. But you were sitting in there too and I didn’t know you at the time but I just couldn’t take my eyes off you. 😉
This is so lovely, Carlene. Thank you so much for doing this. Something I like to repeat to myself when I am feeling down about writing is that I am the only person in this world who can write this particular story. Well, I believe you are the only person who could write this particular post. Xxxxx
Thank you, Pintip. That’s why I wrote the word “more” for you. I’m always learning more about you. There’s always more to who you are than I realize at first. You always have more to share. More. <3
That is beautiful, Carlene.
Carlene: LOVE 🙂
Big bear hugs to you. xoxo
Love you, Sis.
Hi Loni! Know why I said hands for you? Because you have small, feminine hands and when I found out you were in the military, I just remember thinking how impressed I was that you’ve done some pretty big things with those little hands. xoxo
Carlene: CLEAR. Not truth, not honesty – you have all that, but clear. You say it, and you have no fear of making your point. You live a clear life, it’s one of the things I love most about you and wish I had more of.
Oh Susan, I guess it’s only fair that you ladies leave me a bit teary eyed too. Thank you, my friend. 🙂 xoxo
