One of the many reasons I’ve never run for public office is that I hate asking for things. It makes me uncomfortable. It makes me feel unworthy. Unloved.
Votes have always been especially hard for me to ask for. So this is really hard for me to do.
But one of my earliest bloggin’ buddies, Lorna of Lorna’s Voice, nominated me for the BlogHer “Heart: Feel it” Award! And I need your vote to avoid total humiliation.
It is for my story/blog post, Letting Go.
Letting Go is a very heartfelt piece. You see, it was written with my dog Cooper asleep at my feet. Written knowing that the vet would soon come for his last, and saddest, visit with my ailing Cooper. But it isn’t a sad story. Because it is about a very special walk with a very special dog who made a very special friend that day. Or tried to, anyway. And it happened many years earlier, when Cooper was young and healthy and carefree. The story really did help ease the pain of his passing, even as I was facing it.
So please click on this link, register (sorry!) and vote. For me and for Coops. For Letting Go. (There’s a link to the post through this link.)
And pretend you’re in Chicago — vote early and often!
