A lot of you might recognize this lovely lady making an appearance to the left of your screen. For those of you who don't, this is the lovely JeannieGrrl. If you read her blog, you know some things about her. She's a fighter. She's a survivor. She's an encouraging, beautiful woman. She's tough. She's been through so very much, more heartache and negativity then most people need to go through. She prevails over it all. Some days, she is blue and down on her. She always looks for a light in something. She isn't one to sit around and pity herself for the things that are wrong, the bad things, anything at all. She may whine a bit, bitch, vent and moan as well, but who doesn't? She doesn't wallow in misery and she always finds a way to overcome things. If not, she keeps on keeping on, pushing and pulling, looking for ways she can do better. It's her strength, perseverance, spirit, kindness and caring nature that make me admire this woman so dearly, despite never having ever met her before. I admire her for several things she has overcome and other things that she continues to fight.
She's always got kind, encouraging words for me when I find myself in doubt and needing to hear them. She doesn't pour on the sugar and lie her ass off to make me or anyone else feel better. She eloquently puts it in a truthful, blunt manor. I can appreciate that. She cusses like a sailor sometimes in her posts. She has a passion about her that shows through clearly in a lot of her posts. It's very clear that if you mess with her or anyone she cares about, that you're in for it and in for it in a big way. She isn't the biggest but you would be totally silly to underestimate her. Passionate, fiery and fierce concerning those closest to her.
She's a mother and a good one at that. She's fun and young at heart. All you have to do is look at her blog and find out about her love of Hello Kitty, read her sillier posts and look at the goofy pictures she posts of herself to see that she's not all business and serious at all times. She writes about her life in all forms. It isn't always fun to read but it's real. Sometimes, it's heartbreaking to read some of the things she's gone through in the passed. Other times, she's angry about something and ranting and raving. Other times, it's mundane things that wouldn't be an interest to anyone who didn't care about her. Her blog is a collection of her interests, her daily life, her passed, stories, things about her religion, poetry and so many different things. It's all her though and everything is real and truth. She puts so much of herself out there to be seen and read. You still know that she has so many secrets she still keeps to herself though.
Favorite posts of hers? Right now she's in the middle of rebuilding her website because of a massive server failure so you won't find too much post wise right now. Some posts you should check out are these.
"Exactly Me", "She Cries", "Haunted" .
Maybe I'm just biased though because I've gotten to know her a bit and I think she's a lot of things. Interesting, passionate, beautiful, giving, strong, loving, kind, sensual, fierce, soft, honest, spunky, loyal, a force to be reckoned with, real and a thousand other words that could be used to describe her. Like I said, I've never met this woman in person before but I absolutely adore and admire her to pieces. Which is why I picked her to be my first choice for the "Blogger of the Month" thing. I couldn't think of anyone at all that was a better choice for me to do first. She was one of the first blogs I started reading when I came back to blogger after a break for a year and I've stuck with her since then. All in all, if you've never read this chick's blog, you're missing out on the chance to get to know a pretty fucking wicked lady.
