    Thirteen Things about Leanne, Thursday, January 18, 2007
    My other Thirteens
    13 People I love and why I love them.
    disclaimer: I love you, too, I’m just limited to 13 today.
    another disclaimer: In no particular order…
    1. Raehan. Raehan makes me think about the things that are important in life. Her writing is (slowly) opening my eyes and teaching me to appreciate more. Her friendship is kind and warm and it feels like I’ve known her a hundred years.

    2. Taba. I’ve known Taba for years, and she’s like a sister to me. She and I “get” eachother, our wierdness and oddities combined make for wonderfully hilarious conversations that leave me with lingering giggles and smiles.

    3. Nancy. Nancy is sweet, and kind, and what I love about her most is her intuitiveness.

    4. MommaK. She’s hilarious and tender, so loving and such a fiercely loyal friend, all combined I count myself fortunate to have met her.

    5. Lisa. Lisa is one smart cookie, and more often than not, she shows me that there’s always more than one way to view any given situation. She’s a wonderful friend and I’m glad to be counted among hers.

    6. Jacque doesn’t have a blog, if she did she’d never write in it anyway. She’s a busy mom and always makes time for everyone. She’s a sweet, faithful friend and I’m grateful that she dragged me kicking and screaming down to her church, because if she hadn’t, my family and heart might not have opened up to a church again.

    7. Robin. When I think about Robin, I think “THERE’S a real friend.” I love her for that, and I love her for being as open as she is, for trusting and sharing.

    8. Paige doesn’t blog either, but I wish she would. She has to be the one person in this lifetime that understands me so well she knows my thoughts sometimes before I even pin ’em down. I’ve known her for over 20 years, though – she trumps my hubby. She’s a beautiful soul who has only grown more beautiful with each passing year. I’ve never known anyone so thoughtful, honestly. Everyone who knows her loves her, as well they should.

    9. Clara (who just started a photoblog because I made her do it). I’ve known Clara for several years, and I have brain envy. Her cranium is packed to the rim, she’s like a walking encyclopedia. I love her for her brains, I admire her ability to be tactfully yet brutally honest, I love her calm, fearless approach to everything. She’s just an amazing human being, with a camera.

    10. Shizzlin’ Lisa. I know bloggers hold back, that’s the common sense in all of us. But this chick, she doesn’t seem to hold back, and I love her for that. She just puts it all out there, real and raw and so well written.

    11. Erikie is my very good long time artsy friend. She inspires me, she motivates me, and I adore her tenacity. She loves her life even on her worst days, and she is always positive – in any given situation. She’s amazing and her spirit is just so full of light and love. I adore her.

    12. Tommi, my sister, is a wonderful, kind, loving, nurturing, compassionate human being. I’m so lucky to be able to call her my sister and friend. (She could be a little more brave.)

    13. Ladybug, Colleen, Phoenix, Mrs. Fun, Terrilynn, Chickadee, Pamibe, Better Safe Than Sorry, Lolo, D, Sue, Ocean, Laura, YellowRose, Used*to*be*me AND T.Bird. I just had to get in as many of the bloggers that I’ve met who have had such a tremendous impact on my blogging experience and daily life. I appreciate all of their friendships and each of them have such a unique way about them that they’ve become part of my “people I think about and hope everything is perfect in their lives” daily routine. There are more of you, indeed, but I ran out of CoQ10 and my mental acquity isn’t up to par.

    MommaK said,

    First of all, I do not even deserve to be on this list. Why? Because friends don’t forget friend’s birthdays. I am so sorry!! For some reason, I thought your Bday was in Feb! You owe me a kick in the head for that one.

    I am touched by your choice of adjectives in describing me but I think we need to add “scatter-brained blonde bitch” to the list to make it complete. I am fiercely loyal – esp. to the people I so greatly admire such as yourself. You are a gem, Leanne. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought myself blessed for having you in my life.

    Now about this list…is this a “theme” 13? ;)

    Mary (mert) said,

    Wonderful list! I used to visit forums, but they can be so clique-y, it’s really nice to be able to have blogging buddies!:O) Happy TT!

    Paige said,

    Me….BLOG???? No…I’d be callingl you every time to give me ideas of what to talk about! But thank you for the nice compliments. Too sweet. I even got a tear or two in my eyes! If you get any sweeter you’d be like honey (on a peanut butter sandwich of course).

    Ditto to you on being a beautiful soul growing more beautiful each passing year, Leanne. I love you dearly and you are like a sister to me (I swear we could have been twins). I am blessed to have you in my life. Thanks for being such a great friend. Will you pleeeeaaaase move down south closer to me????? :hug:

    Oh, I wasn’t going to go around commenting today, but I had to stop by to say, thank you, my sweet.

    OH, what a wonderful idea… You’re such a sweetie yourself :-)

    Yes, I’ve been visiting several of them earlier too and it’s so amazing, wonderful bloggers!!!

    In real life or blog friends – doesn’t make any difference, even if it’s very very cool to meet someone in real life.

    What a great idea for a T13, Leanne. This is a good way to meet new folks via their blogs. I can see I’m going to be busy for the next hour or two, or three… ;)

    Thank you, I’m not sure I’m deserving of such praise. I love you in return. Do you believe we’ve been friends for almost 10 years now? I admire you, your artistic gifts (which are too varied and great to count), your computer skills, your determination. I know that I can always call on you to laugh with me, cry with me, or help me with this darn web thing. You are beautiful inside and out and I appreciate the person that you are and wish I could be more like you. Hugs, clara :friends:
