Tuesday's Tribute: Jean, Jean, the reading machine

Today is Tuesday's Tribute. What is it? Well, I'll tell you what it is NOT... It's Not About YOU. It's about SOMEONE ELSE. It's our chance, each of us, to shine our light on someone else.

Huh? Whaddya mean?

We each spend a lot of time talking about ourselves and our lives, but we are also fairly GIVING people too...Tuesday's Tribute is a chance to talk about OTHER people, OTHER blogs, OTHER lives.

Now's your chance to shine your light on someone or something else.

Tuesday's Tribute

Today's post is all about my dear friend, Jean. She puts up with my many quirks and she always makes me laugh.

She will not get mad at me because I posted this picture. Besides, I think she looks good in it.

She comes with me on my bi-annual scrapbook beach trips and she doesn't like to scrapbook. Often times, she gets recruited to cut stuff from the cricut for all the other scrappers. She likes to help us out.

She can travel in the car with me for more than eight hours and we never run out of things to talk about.

You can pretty much ask her anything and expect an honest answer. She always tells me when I'm "stressin" and usually she is right.
She reads faster than anyone I have ever met.

She does not question my motives when I stop at a giant skate along the road and tell her to get out so I can take her picture.
When I moved to south central Pennsylvania I felt very alone. No one at the bus stop acknowledge me or my children. It didn't take me long to figure out that people around these parts just ain't that friendly. There are some exceptions.
Jean introduced herself and said, "Welcome to the witness protection program."
I'm so glad she did.
