VLOG: Tribute to Melissa Garrett, Author

Y'all who follow me closely know my passions and my dedications and my friends, and so many if not most of us, have become dear friends and supporters to each other.

For those of you whom I am lucky enough to have as followers and lurkers who aren't necessarily in my FB group or a regular or a commenter - I am thankful for your following and taking time here and there to read the ins and outs of my life as a Happy Mother, Happy Wife to a Farmer, and my working on being a true Writer. Along with my other antics and occasional gripes and love for the spirits. ;-)

This vlog is a dedication to my dear friend, 'LIS', more professionally known as Melissa Luznicky Garrett. I could give you a history of what great friends we have become, some inside jokes we wouldn't share but with one or two IRL friends and the overall congruency we share as mothers and wives and friends and our lives in general. But, it is pretty much understood at this point in life. :-)

I will put in print the overall statement of what I say in the vlog, though I say it better there:

Melissa Luznicky (that's a hard name to say AND type) Garrett, Congratulations! I am so proud of, but more and mostly, FOR you. You are on your way. You took that step and you didn't fall off into the pit of fear and denial. (I wouldn't have let you anyhow = me nagging.) You have wonderful, creative stories to tell with endearing characters and the world would miss out so much if you didn't share them with us. But, you are sharing them.

Lis, since the beginning, I have and forever will be riding the dust trail of the shooting star you are.... *smiley wink*

Without further 'ado' my tribute vlog to you (take four better work, LOL!):

LIS, you ROCK!

I have watched this video several times now, and each time I end it with tears in my eyes and a huge grin on my face. Your tribute touched my heart, Gal! It's for people like you why I continue to write. :-D
