WOW! I'm a BON

The post title is not very clear, is it?

I'm honored and humbled to have been chosen today's Blogger of Note (BON) at Words of Wisdom (WOW). If you are popping over from WOW, welcome to the Land of Belle where just about any kind of crazy can be found. Make yourselves at home...I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter of the south, educator, and friend who can at times be something of a control freak, loud mouth, over-eating and impatient pain in the neck. I can pitch QUITE the hissy fit when I put my mind to it...

If you're an old friend, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for reading about all of the craziness in my life and leaving your comments. If you're new...well...I hope that you'll become a friend and visit often, as I look forward to visiting your blog.

WOW asked me to give you links to three of my favorite posts....that's a tall order, because as everybody knows, ALL of my posts of marvelous (see...that remark is a prime example of the pain in the neck thing I mentioned in the first paragraph.)

Anyhow, see what you think about the following...




And I'll leave you with a photo of my most prized possession...our family. Come back now, ya hear?

  11. Hi Belle, Congratulations on your deserved BON status. I just read the three posts you recommended and then scrolled down for more! I am particularly happy to have found you, as I, too, have written about dementia. My novel, The Somebody Who, is a story about a woman coping with her husband's dementia, and what shocks people is that there are many laugh-out-loud moments in the story. Hmm... I think I've found someone through WOW who can appreciate the possibility of incorporating humor into such a tale. Good to meet you!
