I am feeling unloved, ignored, and unpopular. My Inbox has been more or less empty all week. I know people have been visiting here because Feedjit and my little "Vote For Me' tally tells me so. But it sure is quiet in the blogosphere. Has everyone gone to Twitter and Facebook??? I saw a news headline that said MySpace is laying off 30% of its work force. Oh, how fickle humanity is. How quickly we tire of things. How short is our attention span. Mine included. It's like it takes too much effort to click a button and go anywhere.
Yesterday as I walked the boys and we headed down a quiet side street the door of a house flew open and a young mother and her two little girls came out on the porch, preparing to leave. When the older of the girls spotted us she ran down the steps and to the gate, leaning over it and waving at me.
"Hi!" she called out.
"Hi!" we all called back.
"Happy Mother's Day!" she yelled.
"Thank you!" I yelled back.
I'm wise enough to know that, in her mind, yesterday was Mother's Day.
