Hubby and I are honored to be aquainted with the uh-maaay-zing author Lesléa Newman. She’s been on some of our trips abroad as a writing workshop leader, and came to speak in Fort Wayne a couple of years ago. Of course we went to hear her!
The author of Heather Has Two Mommies and many other gorgeous and groundbreaking books, she always calls us “the Drudges” in the sweetest tone and asked once on a tour bus all about us, even though she was sitting behind us and no conversation was necessary. Her kindness is not mere politeness. She’s a gem.
She posted this link to her poem on Facebook today, and even though I was getting ready to go to work, it transported me so that I nearly forgot what I was doing. I had to share the link. Please read it and enjoy!
