In Awe

Today was a tiring day at work to say the least, but this evening there was a book signing for Pearl Cleage. She wrote What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, an Oprah book club pick, and among tons of other stuff, including a play I saw last summer Blues for an Alabama Sky.

My mama LOVES her, so I told her weeks ago I was going to get her a book signed by her, her new book. I TOTALLY didn't feel like going after hard day, meeting, traffic, working out and negotiating my new lease (trying to)... BUT I promised Mom Dukes and what could I really say.... SOooo I went...

AND IT WAS AMAZING. Pearl Cleage is the kind of woman I'd like to grow into as I get older... smart, quick, bright, confident, calm, peaceful, genuine and honest. She is dopppppe... and I got her to sign a book for my mother.. and my mom will be so happy.... sooo it was TOTALLY WORTH IT. Each day I am surprised by how I find so many unexpected and wonderful reasons to smile :-)

I love her books. When I'm struggling with something, I'll often ask myself "What would a free woman do?" which I got from I Wish I Had a Red Dress - at least I think that's the title.

Yay for pushing yourself to do that one last thing at the end of a long week. Looks like it paid off and your mom will really appreciate it.
