Something Very Special~~~

Sunday morning I checked one of my e-mail accounts and found an e-mail from Nancy Liedel, at The Goat Rodeo , directing me to her blog for a review! I must admit I was very curious but knowing she was a friend of Miss Bee's, I didn't figure she'd be too terribly rough on me!

Wow! What a lovely surprise!!! I want to thank you personally, Nancy, for your kindness. Oh, I offered to take down the music and was threatened, so it stays!

"Sunday, Blog DayJuly 29th, 2007
I seem to be making the rounds of the people who are regulars on
Shipshape Gal’s blog (otherwise known as, Empress Bee). That’s because I go down a list on my, “blog’s to be read” list and her buddies are all at the top of the list. I found, Amazing Gracie’s blog, Echoes of Grace, on that list.
Gracie’s posts clearly show the life of a good woman who struggles with ordinary things. Just like we all do.
Her grandson is off to Navy boot camp and Gracie is bursting with pride, and concern. Her love for her grandchild, along with her obvious patriotism and her conflict of worry, all mingle into a genuine outpouring of emotion that tug at your heart. Gracie’s thoughts, at this time, are genuine and beautifully laid out in her carefully tended blog."
Gracie is a surprise at every turn. Just when you think you have her pinned into a neat little corner, she writes something that shows you the depth and complexity of her character and you’re fascinated, all over again.
Music does accompany her blog. Her music is beyond lovely, but it sucks my bandwidth more effectively than a Dyson sucks dog hair. I can’t have any other windows open when I’m looking at her site, or this piece of crap computer will slow to a dead crawl. Worth it, though. Like I said, the music is wonderful and peaceful, just like her Echos of Grace."
