K is for ... Sue?


K … K  … K … killer, kobo … kindle ???  I stumbled around for a long time trying to  to find a K word that I wanted to write about …   The first three K words that came to me are up above, but I really don’t feel like writing about killers or e~book readers

I could write about “kind” … but wait, I think I blogged on that topic a couple of years ago … so repeating it would be … well, kinda boring.

And then it hit me … my dear friend Sue  always ends her emails with “Be kind and leave the world a better place.”  Isn’t that a wonderful mantra? 

My dear friend Sue, is probably one of the kindest, and gentlest people that I know … she is wonderfully thoughtful … truly thoughtful, the kind of friend that always seems to know what to say in every situation … she is so attentive to people that she is fully tuned in and just seems to know when things are off.  She gives wonderful hugs, and wonderful words.  And the best part … out of this seemingly quiet, humble and kind person, can come the most hilarious, like pee your pants hilarious … zingers!!!   Oh she can truly get anyone laughing … real good down in your gut laughter … So yes, Sue … I will be “kind” and leave the world a better place.  And thank you for your reminders to do so!


Sue, shortly after she shaved her head to raise funds for Cancer Research ... what a beautiful gift she is to this planet


K is for Sue!
