It’s time to introduce you to my soul sister Lee, who blogs at Golden Pink Journal. We first bonded over our blog names, because of the word “pink”. We’ve bonded over many other things since and that’s why we call ourselves soul sisters. We have so much in common. A similar childhood, similar ways of thinking, similar problems happening at the same time. Lee is one of the few blogger friends I exchange emails with. We’re just that close. I love her personality and I feel like I’ve known her for a long time. I also have the privilege of being the only one in our blogging family who knows her first name, because sisters just have to. (Am I still the only one, honey?)
Do you know her? She’s quite popular so I’m sure you do. If not, I would love if you took a moment of your time to go over to her blog and get to know her better. She’s so worth it. She blogs about many different subjects and has quite a few series going on. She’s a writer and she gifts us with a new short story every saturday.
What do you think about her new header image? I’m in love with it. The pink, the font, the color scheme, just perfect! Also, the words have everything to do with her. She’s inspiring, loving and creative.
She’s a cat mom to Izabelle, a gorgeous kitten she has recently adopted. I mean, just look at her:
She’s also mom to two Guinea pigs, I wish I remembered their names. They have a YouTube channel, though, so you can check on them.
Lee writes poetry too, having a whole category dedicated to it.
Here’s one of my favorites:
Letter To My Mother Away
Mother you’re away still
I’ve never been able to celebrate with you for Mother’s Day,
or any other occasion.
Every year I watch all the other sons and daughters with their mothers
I tell my aunt Happy Mother’s Day! But it’s just not the same…
She has her own children
Like you have your own
But you left yours to be all alone
High off life without me
It couldn’t have been easy
But it was harder being low and sober
You needed it but you didn’t need
Me as a baby, and the thought of you leaving
The pain makes me queasy
And I blame you for many things
The root of my pain
But I never hated you
I still love you
Even when I barely know you
It’s such a shame
How do you even remember me?
You told me you didn’t remember my little brothers name
But I still love you
I was still happy I could be there with you for a moment
and you were okay
It felt like a miracle
I was in the hospital only months before from that car crash
Then there I was
Walking through hospital doors
To meet you alive
Smiling and laughing
Giving me advice for the first time
Promising we’d keep in touch this time for the second time
It was the best day of my life
I thought I’d finally have you in my life
And I did for a while
Then Mother’s Day came around
You were no where to be found…
It’s been about 2 years since then
I haven’t heard from you since
But I’ve been told you’ve been seen and you’ve been asking about me
Is it true?
But if you really wanted me
I know you could find me
just like I found you
Still I love you
And I have hope
That has not died
And If it’s not too late
When you come around
(Please don’t wait
to come around)
I’ll be by your side
This poet was written to her mom, in a post where she talks about their story and her relationship with her mom:
Every day, I look forward to her Today’s to-do, where she shares her list of tasks for the day and updates us on her progress. You know I love lists, so this might be my favorite series of hers. I love to know how she spends her days and if you share any tasks for a given day.
Fun Friday is another series of hers, posting something fun and different every Friday.
My personal favorites:
As I’ve told you before, she has a series called Short Story Saturday:
There’s so much more to her blog. I hope you go over there and check a few of her posts, maybe give her a follow? I would be really happy if you did.
I’d like to finish with her answers to my Perfect Party Series questions:
What was your favorite thing about my party?
It was so unique! I’m actually upset that I made it a little late but apparently not too late – The party lasted 3 days!! So I was able to still make an appearance and some new blogging friends:)
Did you get any new followers or views because of the party?
I did get a few and I followed a few💕
Did you make any friends?
I have nothing but love for you, my sister. We have so much in common and I feel so lucky to have met you. We’re both damaged but strong, aren’t we? I admire you so much and I love being able to follow your journey. I’m always here for you, you know that.
