Best of

Today, I just want to share something with you; writings that I have found very moving. These posts are my top three favorites from the BlogHer Keynote Addresses, in which talented writers read their posts to the large assembly. They made me laugh til I cried and cried til I....

(I know, I know, but no one had any tissues, and I didn't want to leave and miss something good!!)

In short, these posts touched me, so I wanted to share them with you. Choose one or read them all, you'll be glad you did.

Stuck in the Middle With You, is a humorous piece from Knotty Yarn. Here's the video version, which I think is the best, (because she reads it with such great dramatic effect. This post is funny, and kind of offensive to some, so don't read it if you're the wilting-flower type. ) If it doesn't play well, click on the link at the start of this post.

This one is beautiful and made me cry at BlogHer: 5, from Black Hockey Jesus (whose blog is private, I guess) with a message to his little girl.

Forgiveness Where It Belongs, by Grace Davis, of State of Grace. This one ripped me up a bit, but it's my favorite. It's not a "lollipops and puppies" post, though, so read it at your own risk.

I know you have a favorite post or two (your own, or someone else's.) I would love to read it. Don't be afraid to drop the link(s) in your comment. Also, check out some of the other commenters' links; you're sure to find some gems.
