Significant Other Blogfest

Today is the Significant Other Blogfest, hosted by D L Hammons and Talli Roland!

I was a last-minute signup, as I didn’t want to pressure my husband into participating in my blogging world. So I was simply amazed and touched when he gave me this post…

“How to best describe my wife? The adorable ball of energy or the cutest Energizer bunny ever! Diane is a marvel to me. The attribute that I've always admired in my wife is her dedication to a goal. I had no doubt when she began writing "The Circle of Friends" that she would make it happen. And it's been fun watching her mature as a writer along the way. There have been many hurdles along the way, but Diane handled them like an Olympic track star. I can honestly say that quitting was never an option. Diane takes hard work to levels I never thought possible. I wish I had half that focused drive and determination that she possesses. A bright, shining star and the love of my life, I will always be her biggest fan!”

Thanks, honey - you’re my hero!

Please visit D L Hammons and Talli Roland’s sites for the rest of the participants!

Diane, while it'a always nice to be appreciated by peers and friends, when it's your mate who gives the words of appreciation it leaves such a warm glow.

"cutest Energizer bunny ever!" made me smile because it fits.

"A bright, shining star and the love of my life, I will always be her biggest fan!" Didn't it make your heart melt? You've got a good one there Diane!
