My dear friend, Angela, twisted my arm and shoved me to the ground until I submitted into participating in this year’s WordCount Blogathon. Okay, she only sent one text message and an email. LOL! I am starting the month of disciplined posting 3 days late but am committed to participating. Unfortunately, I am no longer qualified for the writing prizes had I started on May 1st. Kinda bummed…sigh. Well, the reward is in posting!
I’m beginning Blogathon 2012 with a tribute to my cousin, Lesleigh. For followers of HoneySugaSweet.com, she was featured in the HoneySugaSweet Reminder: You’ve Got to Live! post. Lesleigh lost her battle with cancer on November 30, 2011. At times, her passing feels so raw and recent. No more so than on special occassions l like her birthday. On May 1st Baby Girl (as her mother called her) would’ve turned 25. It’s fitting that the first Blogathon 2012 post be in honor of her. I hope Lesleigh celebrated her birthday in grand fashion…wherever she may be.My Heart Will Find You (For Lesleigh 1986-2011) By Jovette Gadson No matter where you are No matter where I am My heart will find its way to you If your body is gone Your ashes scattered to the wind My heart will find its way to you If your spirit roams free Your soul dances with our ancestors My heart will find its way to you If I no longer recognize your face Your ears no longer know my voice My heart will find its way to you No matter where you are No matter where I am My heart will find its way to you
