CaptureMy Featured Blogger this week is Alicia (Leesha) of ProlixMe (a self-mocking reference to her tendency to use “too many words”). Leesha is a serious writer who maintains three blog sites, this one being her most personal, I believe. She also writes about writing here, which I appreciate. Leesha’s other two sites focus on romance novels (her genre), or “chick lit” as she refers to them, and on children’s literature. This one is my favorite. Why? Because I enjoy her earthy reflections and blunt self-talk (which, she admits, is sometimes a bit “potty-mouthed”).

And I suspect you will too.


You’ll roll your eyes at the mess of my hairbrush.

I’ll curse when you forget to lower the toilet seat.

One night, we’ll go to sleep still angry and upset.

But in the morning, I’ll wake up and – you’ll be here, snoring softly into your pillow.

And it won’t be a rare treat.  It will be normal; it will be every day.

It’s strange, but I hope – we have the chance to take each other for granted.

To expect to see your smile every day.

What a wonderful thing – the chance to become used to someone.  To expect them to be there when you come home.  To no longer count the weeks until you can see them again – but the hours and minutes.

I hope we have the chance to take each other for granted…but, I hope we never do.
