Girls Write Out
Wednesday, January 19, 2011

So today is our beloved Colleen's birthday and I just have to say, writing the scenes in Smitten with the "friends" is so fun because we love each other warts and all. So Colleen's character is um, shall we say, a little bossy. And yes, this is purely a FICTIONAL book. Ahem. But Colleen is one of those people that learns about something until she knows it like the back of her hand. She's used this way of life to get healthy, get skinny, renovate a Victorian, write books where she kills people, and ultimately, pass her wisdom onto her friends.

She is the most loving person and she wants everyone to have the best, so if you are sick? She will learn everything about that disease and all you have to do is follow orders. And you know what? When you're sick, that's all you want to do. So I'm here to celebrate our BFF Colleen -- who really made the world a brighter place just by being in it.

But let's face it, she's at her best, giving orders. And we are happy to follow them. Hasn't hurt us yet. Except for maybe when we waited too long to take the advice. (Raising hand here!) Celebrate a good friend today in honor of C! Personally, I'm having a truffle for breakfast to celebrate myself.

Preach it, Kris! We do love our Colleen, who has the strength and courage to kick rears and get us in gear. Since she is presently kicking my rear to make sure I get the proper treatment, I am appreciating her even more right now. What a precious gift from God. And when I'm better--which I WILL be, or she'll kick rear until I get there--I will give her a great deal of the credit. God gives us the tools to work toward health, and Colleen deciphers them.

You're bossy, I'm whiny, D can be a pessimist, Di lives in fairy princess land and Cheryl thinks the glass is empty, but then we have our great sides too, and the negatives make us fun. And real!

If Denise is a pessimist, then I'm the one who thinks the glass is half full--with poison. It could save your life someday. And Kris, you're outspoken. Di is encouraging (any time but Christmas ;-) and Denise isn't a pessimist, she's a deep thinker.
Colleen is a nurturer.

Happy Birthday, Colleen!

I remember you when...

I hope you had a wonderful day!

By the way, I still need that info. from you....
