A few years ago Scott encouraged me to start blogging.
And I thought,yes, that is what I need,
one more thing to add to my to do list.
Nurse the baby, do the laundry, make the meals, and somehow
find a quiet moment amidst the chaos to log my inner most thoughts.
And then I went to a writer's conference and the publishers said,
"You need to start blogging."
And so of course, I started blogging.
And I also had to go to Scott and tell him,
"Of course, you were right all along. And you are so incredibly handsome.
And the most funny person in the world....can you set up a blog for me?"
Thus was born confessions of a tired supergirl.
But what I had not counted on was the joy.
The joy of writing. The joy of sharing.
The joy of reading YOUR comments.
(Those comments are like chocolate, I just can't get enough.)
And of course, the joy of knowing there are so many
other tired supergirls out there, struggling with the same things
I struggle with, enjoying the same things I enjoy,
understanding all the crazy that goes on in my head.
A veritable league of tired supergirls.
That was the best part of all.
And I am thankful. I am thankful for your encouragement.
Your readership. Your senses of humor. Your willingness
to come hang out and read my stuff.
So today, thanks to my sister, Erica, and her amazing creativity,
she has designed a tired supergirl necklace from BonBon Charms.
It is made from fine silver (better than sterling),
with a fresh water pearl (like moonlight on a string),
and hold on to your seat, girls, a sterling ball chain.
It's shiny. It's pearly. It's free.
What more could a supergirl want?
A little thank you from me to you. It says -
HOPE. BELIEVE. FLY.
It echoes the scripture that we supergirls cling to with a
vise like grip.
Isaiah 40:29-31 says,
He gives power to those who are tired and worn out;
he offers strength to the weak.
Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up.
But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength.
They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
So here's the deal.
I am not keeping it for myself. Even though I want to and
it would accent my neckline beautifully.
It is for ONE OF YOU.
If you would like this necklace for your very own,
leave your name or a comment in the comments.

There will be a drawing Friday morning.
The tired supergirl winner will be announced on Friday's blog.
