Just taking a moment, a pause, from the Blog Exchange (don't forget to read my blog partner Chelle's lovely post about motherhood below) to award an April Perfect Post award to a lady who, though she lives thousands of miles away and we've never met, is joined to me in the most profound way. She's in love with a Red Sox fan. And if you love a Sox fan, even if you don't love their team, you have to love their passion and commitment.
Jen of One Plus Two wrote a beautiful post about her dear J's love for his team, the pain that accompanies that love and the triumph that we, Red Sox fans, occasionally get to feel. But you don't have to be a member of Red Sox nation to love that post. If you've ever given your heart to anything only to have it crushed repeatedly, and yet you go back for more because you just can't quit your love (it's a part of you, after all) then you'll relate to Jen's post.
Thanks to Lucinda at Suburban Turmoil and Momma K at Petroville for hosting the Perfect Post awards. Go to their sites to read more Perfect Post award nominees.
