In March of '07 when I was in the hospital and my hubby and family were trying to keep everyone up-to-date on my status, my dad -- with his infinite and practical wisdom -- said you know you guys should really create something that's easy for you to update and easy for everyone to access, you should start a "Butt Blog!"
Well for whatever reason I have waited and procrastinated and am just starting it now. And as usual I should have just listened to my dad in the first place, would have made life easier for everyone!
Although he's not with us to see this actually come to life, I know he's just loving it. When I came up with the name, I could hear his big belly laugh when something really got him going and knew it was just meant to be.
Dad, you are still inspiring me everyday and giving me the strength to travel along this journey with perseverance, laughter and feistyness. Thanks for continuing to give me gentle pushes even from heaven. I love you.
