Diva…what does that mean?
My friend Dorreen had a birthday yesterday. She’s the kind of friend that you have a “sister” connection with. We don’t talk that often, but in the 9+ years that I’ve known her, it’s always good when we do get a chance to catch up! You never have to wonder about how she’s feeling at any given moment. She is accessible, and always up front when she speaks.
I want to say how much I admire her tenacity. She’s been faced with life threatening illness and major surgery, along with the rest of all the stuff that we go through as spouses, parents, and grandparents…and she always puts on a brave face. Anything she decides to do, she goes right ahead and does it!
A while ago, she decided she’d like to write a romance novel. Done! Then she wrote another one! Bam! Her novel sells on Amazon. Her pen name is Diva Dorreen, and she is a force to be reckoned with. Even though I’ve decided to take a try at blogging, I am pretty sure I would have to move mountains of self-doubt and uncertainty to tackle such a big project.
What an inspiration for so many people who have you in their lives to one extent or another. Shine on, Dorreen! Whenever I hear the word Diva, I’ll have the image of you in my head and a smile on my face!
